7:00PM  Charles Howard opened the meeting.

Charlie introduced Kirk Mayland  (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) who requested time before the Board to present a informal presentation on a 4.8 acre site a part from 50 acres at 926 North State Road. Mr. Mayland presented the project on paper with photographs depicting the slope of the land.  He has been in contact with National Heritage and anticipates no issues or concerns regarding any wetland issues.  The project will not be seen by abutters or from the road and it will not interfere with the life style of those abutting the property.  Charlie gave Mr. Mayland a copy of Cheshire Rules and Regulations and a copy of Cheshire’s by law regarding photovoltaic projects.  Mr. Mayland is under a time constraint and will be submitting required paperwork to the Planning Board on Friday, January 2, 2015.

A site visit by the Board will take place on Sunday, January 4, 2015 at 9am at the annex.  The Board will meet at the site at 9:15am.  Abutters attending the meeting were Joan and George Bushika and they will also be at the site meeting. Mr. Bushika felt it was, “A wonderful site for the project.”  Mrs. Bushika questioned if the building would be maintained or if it would be taken down.  She noted that the construction is post and beam.  It was noted that there may be a below ground tank under the building.

Mr. Mayland said he would go door to door to the abutters to explain the project rather than attempting to get advertising out for an information meeting.

The presentation ended at 7:45 PM.

Dan Speth motioned to accept the November 24, 2014 minutes; 2nd by Fran Griswold with a unanimous vote taken.
