Vice Chair Jameson called the meeting to order at 6:38pm.

Pursuant to RSA 673:11, Vice Chair Jameson appointed Mr. Houle as a voting member for the purposes of this meeting..

The minutes of June 7, 2012 were reviewed.  Mr. Brehm was added as a present member, and the discussion of Chuckster’s signage was amended (italicized) to read, “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.   A motion was made by Mr. Mayville and seconded by Mr. Jordan to approve the minutes as corrected.  Motion passes.


The Board discussed an amendment to the Rules of Procedure regarding the selection of a Chair Pro Tempore in the absence of the Chair and Vice Chair.  A motion was made by Stan Brehm and seconded by Mr. Mayville to adopt the following language and to insert the same in to Section 4: Officers; Paragraph 2.  Motion passes.

c) Chair Pro Tempore:  In the absence of the Chair and Vice Chair, the members present at any such meeting shall elect a Chair Pro Tempore to preside over the meeting.  The Chair Pro-Tempore shall have the full powers of the Chair for the purposes of the meeting in which prescribed.


Due to several schedule conflicts the August meeting was moved to August 9th.  

Mr. Moore provided an informational update on the progress of the CIP.  Discussion included the definition of a “Capital Improvement”.  There is a difference between the definition found in the zoning ordinance and the definition used in the CIP by the committee.  Mr. Moore has sought advice on this issue, and most responses were that it is not an issue as the two documents are completely separate, and the definitions have different purposes in each of the documents.

Being no further business, a motion was made by Mr. Mayville and seconded by Mr. Houle to adjourn the meeting at 7:08pm.  Motion passes.

Respectfully submitted,



Jamie A Pike
