The Chairman asked for a motion to approve the November 11, 2010 Minutes. Rogers made the motion which was seconded by Burrage and the motion passed with a 3/0 vote.
Discussion was opened on making the meeting times in the Rules of Procedure for the Planning Board consistent with the meeting time in the Rules of Procedure for the Board of Adjustment. Rogers moved that Planning Board meetings be changed to quarterly meetings on the second Thursday of July, October, January, and April. Elections will be held at the July meeting. The motion was seconded by Burrage and the motion was approved by all.
Mayor Riemann brought forth a request from the Village Council for the Planning Board to change their focus from sidewalks to improving the Zoning Ordinances of the Village. He indicated that improvement could be done at different levels and New London, Red Cross, and Quanite Quarry had developed ordinances at $5000, $20,000, and $25,000 respectively. Different professional service providers were used by each. The Planning Board was encouraged to review ordinances at other municipalities and to make a recommendation at the April meeting for the level of change so that the appropriate amount could be set aside in the budget for 2011-12.
The Mayor informed the Board of the current difficulties of using Powell Bill funds for the Richfield sidewalk project.
