Brownfields Assessment Program-
Central New Hampshire Regional Planning Commission (CNHRPC) was recently awarded and EPA Brownfield Assessment grant to conduct assessments of potentially contaminated sites in the region.
Mr. Brehm stated that there was a property in Chichester that would be great for the project.
Mr. Houle knows the property owner and stated that he would contact her to see if she would be interested in the project and applying for the grant.
Mr. Tardiff stated that CNHRPC will choose the projects in June so the application would need to be in immediately to be considered.
Master Plan Survey-
Results of the Master Plan Survey were distributed to the Planning Board. The Board decided that they would review the results and be ready to discuss what they feel the information means as well as bring a revised vision statement to the June 16th meeting for the Master Plan.
The Board reviewed an ad looking for volunteers to join the Master Plan Committee to be placed in the Suncook Valley Sun.
Mr. Tardiff came to talk about some options for using the $3000.00 voted on at Town Meeting to update the Master Plan. He will draw up a contract for the Board to review. At this time the Board has not decided on how to utilize the funds.
Mr. Tardiff had some recommendations for having a Town wide vision session for the community to participate in the vision of the Master Plan. The Board liked the idea and would like to host the session in the early fall, possibly at the school.
The Planning Board would also like to extend invitations to other Town Committees to attend the meetings to work on their sections of the Master Plan.
The next Planning Board Meeting will be held on Thursday, June 2, 2016.
Adjournment-Being no further discussion, a motion was made by Mr. Brehm and seconded by Ms. Davis to adjourn the meeting at 8:40pm.
Not approved until signed.
