Day opened the meeting at 7:05 PM and declared a quorum present. Henderson made a motion to accept the April 21, 2011 minutes. The motion was seconded by Rogers and approved by a 4/0 vote.

There were no Zoning Applications to consider.

Mayor Riemann, who could not attend the meeting, provided a Sidewalk Recommendations document for the Board’s review and comment. A copy of that document is attached with these minutes. The following were comments and/or questions raised by Board Members:
• The Board agreed with Mayor Riemann regarding the priority of the projects listed (1. Sidewalk on Hwy 52 going toward Richfield 2. Sidewalk on Wesley Chapel Road South and 3. Sidewalk along Wesley Chapel Road North.
• Day mentioned that he would prefer that no General Funds be used to complete any of these projects even if it meant returning Powell Bill funds back the State of NC.
• There was discussion that Priority 2-Sidewalk along Wesley Chapel Road South only needed to go as far as the newly acquired Gladstone Academy property and/or as far out as land that may be acquired for an eventual park.
• There was discussion regarding keeping Wesley Chapel Road more ‘’rural” in character and to consider the tree situation wherever the sidewalk would be located.

A motion was made by Rogers and seconded by Day to proceed with the first priority project (Sidewalks along Hwy 52 going toward Richfield), limit the distance to be paved in sidewalks on the second priority project (Sidewalks along Wesley Chapel Road South) to only go as far as the Gladstone Academy or the possible proposed park land, and to acknowledge that the third priority project (Sidewalks along Wesley Chapel Road North) would probably not be able to be funded by Powell Bill funds. The motion was approved by a 4/0 vote.

A motion was made by Day and seconded by Rogers to have the Village Council handle securing another Zoning Officer as they had no replacement recommendations. The motion was approved by a 4/0 vote.

There were no Zoning Cases to consider.

A motion was made by Henderson and seconded by Rogers to adjourn the meeting at 7:30 PM. The motion was approved by a 4/0 vote.
