Call to Order 

            The meeting was called to order at 8:45 PM.  Members in attendance were Chair Sirean LaFlamme, Howard Alboum, D. Chris Estep, Norman Fajans, Brian McNeice, and Bradley Rafus. William Pusey was absent.  Others in attendance were Blaise McGarvey, and Secretary Phyllis Evanuk. 

Approval of Minutes 

            Mr. Alboum moved to approve the minutes of the May 11, 2010 meeting as written.
            Mr. Fajans seconded the motion which carried 6-0.

Schedule Hearing 

            The Board reviewed the request from Honora Winery for a change to the hours and capacity for bus tours.  The letter was very general and after a short discussion it was agreed that a more complete request giving specifics was needed.  It may be necessary to schedule a public hearing as this involves amending a specific part of their conditional use approval.  It was decided to schedule this for the September 14, 2010 meeting. 

            The Hammarquist site visit and hearing will be on August 10, 2010.  The Board had a short discussion of whether or not Attorney Fisher should be invited to this site visit and hearing.  It was decided to ask the Selectboard for permission to request Mr. Fisher’s participation on August 10th.   



            The meeting was adjourned at 9:05 PM. 

Respectfully submitted,
Phyllis H. Evanuk
