124 Years

Please click here for a slide show of the entire set. I know that we’ve missed people who were there from our town. It was not intentional. We wanted to celebrate our community and all that we do to make it a better place to live.

Meeting was called to order at 7:05 PM by Vice-Chairman Bartholomew

Kristin Janke is now representing the Delaware County Planning Department at the meetings and will aid the planning board with her expertise. Shelly Johnson is the Chief Planner for the county and will be available to attend the Town Board Meetings when her assistance is needed as well as aid the planning board.

This being the first time we have been together in this manner, a period of time was spent on introductions and getting to know each other.

Cark Stuendel went over some of the things that the planning board and Tom Evans had been working on over a period of time. This information was provided to make the transition to a new county representative smoother. Items included:

• Setting up the planning board’s subdivision regulations electronically
so that any changes and updates could be made easily
• Site plan review (regarding wind)
• Comprehensive plan updates
• Road specification updating
• Training availability for board members
• Wind tower regulations

The minutes for the May and June Meetings were read and approved with a minor correction to the June Minutes. Kristin Janke did not study at the University of South Carolina, but rather graduated from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. She did an internship in northern North Carolina. Motion to approve by D’Agati, seconded by Thurston. All ayes to approve the minutes.

There was no official planning board business, but it was productive time spent.

Meeting adjourned at 8:20 PM. Motion made by Thurston, seconded by Bartholomew.
