Acting Chairman Stan Brehm opened the meeting at 6:35pm.

Pursuant to RSA 673:11, Acting Chairman Brehm appointed Mr. Houle and Mr. Williams as voting members for the purposes of this meeting.

The minutes of May 3, 2012 and May 23, 2012 were reviewed.  A motion was made by Mr. Mayville and seconded by Mr. Houle to approve the minutes with minor typographical corrections.

Lot Line Adjustment: Robert & Edith Bates, Map 1 Lots 19 & 21-A, Hutchinson Road
Web Stout (Surveyor), Robert Bates & Edith Bates were present to speak on the merits of the application.

Mr. Stout provided an overview of the application.  The purpose of the application is to transfer .611 acres from lot 19 to lot 21-A.  Lot 21-A currently is 1.404 ac and will become 2.016 acres, bringing the lot into conformity with the current zoning ordinance.  This application was previously reviewed at the May 23rd meeting and notes from the Board were presented to Mr. Stout.
The Public Hearing upon the application was opened.  There were no abutters present.

Being no further discussion, a motion was made by Mr. Houle and seconded by Mr. Jordan to approve the application with the following precedent conditions:
1.      Add a note stating that there are no additional structures located within  100 feet of the subject property lines.
2.      Add a 75 foot well radii to the existing well located on Lot 21.
3.      Add a note stating that there are no existing water supplies or septic facilities upon lots 19 & 21-A
4.      Lot 21-A shall have the building setback lines delineated upon the plat.
Motion Passes.

Conceptual Review: Chuckster’s LLC, Map 2 Lot 81, Bailey Road
Mark Blasko was present to speak upon the merits of the concept.

Mr. Blasko presented the Board with sketches of future development possibilities for the entertainment complex.  Possible future expansions include additional off-site parking, added signage, and additional signage.  Mr. Blasko was referred to the ZBA for the issue regarding additional signage as currently there is only one (1) free standing sign permitted per site.  Allowances to increase the amount of signage could be made by the Planning Board relative to the existing sign based on topography and excess road frontage.

Another concept presented by Mr. Blasko was the addition of scheduled live music entertainment.  The Planning Board informed Mr. Blasko of the existing Noise Abatement ordinance.  The Board felt that as long as the restrictions contained with the ordinance were followed, this would not be an issue.

Other Business

Mr. Pike was asked to draft language for the Bylaws for the purposes of electing an Acting Chairman in the absence of both the Chairman and Vice-Chairman.

The next meeting of the Board will be postponed until July 12th at 6:30pm due to the Independence Day holiday.

Being no further business, a motion was made by Mr. Williams and seconded by Mr. Brehm to adjourn the meeting at 8:10 pm.  Motion passes.

Respectfully submitted,

Jamie A Pike
