Meeting Minutes February 25, 2014

Present:  Lynn Arnold, Larry Mandell, , Rich Polverari
Absent:   Don Sanders, Dori-Ann Ference                                                                                               
The meeting of the Holland Planning Board was opened at 7:00 pm.
The minutes from the meeting of February 11, 2014 and December 10, 2013 were approved as read.
In connection to the motion adopted at the meeting on January 14, 2014:
“To develop comprehensive By-Laws to address potential wholesale and industrial transportation  use in the Commercial District, and other Zoning Districts if applicable, to be presented for a vote at the next Annual Town Meeting”,
Lynn handed out copies of the comprehensive Site Plan Review standards adopted by Sturbridge which will be discussed at the next meeting in the hopes that that taking this approach would more satisfactorily address these types of issues in all zoning districts including Commercial. Dori will also review Zoning By-Laws of other communities to determine if there is language addressing the trucking facilities to determine if there is existing language that can be utilized by the town of Holland for similar situations.  
The Citizen Planner Training Collaborative is scheduled for March 15.  Lynn will be attending and other Board members to be determined may also attend.
Regarding the Trenton Carlson case, we have still not back from the Court documents that we have provided.  Lynn will call Attorney Saperstein to follow-up on this.
Meeting was adjourned at 8:00.
Respectfully submitted,
Lawrence Mandell, Secretary
