Present: Bernard F. Bator, Francis M. Griswold, and Peter H. Traub

Absent:    Daniel L. Speth


Bernard, acting as Chairman, opened the 7pm Cheshire Planning Board.

The minutes for the June 29, 2015 meeting were reviewed and put aside until the August meeting for
the signature of the Chairman.

Peter agreed to be the Cheshire Planning Board representative to the Berkshire Country Regional Planning Commission.

Bernard requested a reminder be emailed to Dan regarding the scheduling of a meeting with committee members with Brian Domain to go forward with the bylaws.

Research showed no determination regarding times for the lighting of signs at the Adams Community Savings Bank.

Invitation letters will be mailed to Eileen Quinn and Fred Jajko inviting them to attend PB meetings.
This invitation is in hope of signing up a new board member and or an alternate member.

A letter of appreciation will be created for Charles Howard, Jr. for his stellar chairmanship of managing the issues and concerns over many years of the Cheshire Planning Board.  He was tenacious in leading all aspects of creating a Cheshire Rules and Regulations Guide, Approval of Special Permit Fees, by laws for Solar Photovoltaic Installations, Small Wind Energy Systems, and Large Wind Energy Facilities, as well as bylaws for Cell Towers. Charlie’s mentoring to new board members was greatly appreciated and the sharing of his knowledge leaves the board with a strong foundation for moving forward in creating a master plan and the updating of the Town’s by laws.

With all business finalized, Bernard motioned to close the meeting at 7:45PM; 2nd by Francis with a unanimous vote taken.

NEXT MEETING:  MONDAY, August 24, 2015 - 7pm - The Cheshire Annex.

Respectfully Submitted,

Carole A. Hilderbrand, Recording Secretary
