The meeting was called to order at 6:30pm.

ATTENDANCE
Chairman Richard Vanden Berg, Vice Chairman Ernest Marks, Daniel Heney, Linda Brown, Roy Swenson, William Cundiff (Town Engineer), Stephen Zisk (Planning/Conservation Agent) and Maria Chesley (Administrative Secretary). Absent were Mark Mungeam and Joel Rosenkrantz.


6:30 PM DECISION: NORTHEAST WIRELESS SERVICES, LLC &
OMNIPOINT COMMUNICATIONS
Application for a Proposed Wireless Service Facility
Located at 436-440 Northeast Main Street
Cundiff informed the Board that he received a fax today from Attorney Jonathan Eichman of Kopelman & Paige along with his draft decision. Eichman suggested the Board add a finding that the facility will violate the 300-foot setback from the adjacent property and to state that the Board requested on numerous occasions for project information but it was never submitted. Cundiff began reviewing some of the changes/suggestions Eichman had made to his draft. Cundiff said that the Board should think about the basis for the 300-foot setback and justification in their decision. Vanden Berg agreed and said that the Applicant’s information was inaccurate. Swenson said that the Applicant wouldn’t consider a waiver for the 300-foot setback from all property lines. Vanden Berg suggested that the Board take the draft home and read it in order to discuss it at the next meeting on 5/9/07 from 7:30pm – 9:00pm. Please see attached “Draft” copy of the Personal Wireless Service (PWS) Facility Special Permit.
