The first line of business was with Mr. Mark Lancaster of Lancaster Builders. Mr. Lancaster was in attendance to present plans for the Copper Oaks II sub-division. The plans showed a five home development with a common drive.

Commissioner Rittelmeyer reported meeting with Playground Specialist in reference to installing the new playground in the park. He provided a quote to do the second volleyball posts from Playground Specialist in the amount of $1,516.20. Playground Specialist will be doing one set along with the new playground bid. A motion to do the second set using town funds was made and tabled to discuss other options. It was decided not to do the second set of posts using town funds and the motion died. Commissioner Rittelmeyer then reported the town will get two new grills at pavilion 4 and the two existing ones will be moved to another pavilion. He will look into writing the new volleyball posts into next year’s grant.

Commissioner Trimmer inquired with Burgess Smith on whether he looked at the growth along the sidewalk from Donsife Alley down to Powell Alley. Burgess Smith reported he has not but will.

Burgess Smith opened discussion about a resident on Copper Oaks Court that would like to place a bat house in the park at Copper Oaks Court. Burgess Smith would like to do some research before contacting the resident with an answer.

There being no further business the meeting was adjourned.
