MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE VIENNA PLANNING BOARD HELD JANUARY 28, 2015
The meeting convened at the Town House at 7:00 PM. Regular members present were Waine Whittier, Ed Lawless, Austin Harrell, and Creston Gaither. Also present were Jonathan Lawless and Chrissie Hudon. Minutes of the December 3, 2014 meeting were read and accepted.
Creston had advertised tonight's meeting as a public hearing on prospective changes to the Shoreland Zoning and Wireless Facilities Siting Ordinances.
Waine said that in view of Bob Weingarten's request that the Board of Appeals reconsider its decision in the GTP "cell tower" matter, the Planning Board should perhaps ask the Selectmen whether we should issue a Notification of Construction permit for the tower. He noted that he never signed anything saying that only one issue needed review regarding the tower application.
At 7:25 the Public Hearing portion of tonight's meeting began. Waine presented proposed wording for an amendment to the cell tower ordinance to eliminate its provision for a waiver of setback requirements and by general consensus Waine's wording was approved. Wording for a proposed change to the Shoreland Zoning Ordinance to modify its sideline setback requirements was discussed and approved.
At 7:30 The Board's Annual Report was briefly reviewed.
The meeting adjourned at 7:45 PM.
Creston Gaither, secretary
