Burgess Smith and Commissioners Trimmer, Rittelmeyer, Kellar and Spruill.

There were eight guests and three residents in attendance.

The first line of business was with the Verdant Development Group. Representatives of this group provided handouts and a Memorandum of Understanding for the Trout property at the south end of town. A discussion on the project and the MOU was held. The development group indicated they would donate a piece of property for the town to build a new town hall. They will come back to a meeting in the near future with a detailed MOU.

Susan Hauver, Zoning Administrator for the town was in attendance to discuss the Kent property and development off Rt. 194 adjacent to the WWTP. She informed the Council that Mr. Kent would like to operate an auto sales and service business. There was a discussion held on the Council’s concern of a junkyard coming from this type of business. There was also a concern of it being an eyesore for the new development going in across Rt. 194. Ms. Hauver will present the plans to the Planning and Zoning Committee for their feedback.
