Non-Binding Consultation: Deb Brower for a lot line adjustment with Karen Cangiano on Bradley Lake Road. The property is Tax Map 13, lots 200,172 and 185,100 and is in the Forest / Agricultural Zone.
Brower presented a map of the property and indicated the current lot line along with the proposed lot line as the property owners have agreed on the location. An e-mail was received from Karen Cangiano advising that she is in agreement with this. The board will act on this application on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 7:30 PM.
Non-Binding Consultation: Chris Dumont for property at 126 Hoyt Road, Tax Map 15, Lot 721, 427 in the Forest / Agricultural Zone.

A deed was presented indicating the right-of-way. The board advised he would have to go before the Zoning Board of Adjustment for a variance to the road frontage requirement.
Additional Items as time allows
1.Urie distributed a draft Planned Unit Development ( P.U.D. ) that he, Hodgson, and Monti created for the boards review. Public hearings need to take place as it is a Zoning Ordinance Amendment. Minimum lot sizes need to be established for each zone, and 25 acres seems to be the preferred size at this time. An open space, common use, and a conservation area for each PUD needs to be established. Setbacks will be the same as in each zone currently. The size of the home needs to be determined.
2. Blinn stated that the Selectboard is putting together a Department of Public Works; a list of work for the road agent and numbers for the 2020 budget.
There being no further discussion, Phelps made a motion to adjourn at 9 PM. Urie seconded the motion and the board voted unanimously in favor of adjourning at 9 PM.
