Chairman Duren welcomed the new Alternate to the Agency and the Planning and Zoning Commission, Alan Drinan.
Because the Minutes were unavailable, Commissioner Longhi made a motion, seconded by Commissioner Ballard, to table the Minutes of December 3, 2009 until the next meeting. The motion was approved by a 7 – 0 – 0 vote with Alternate Gregory voting.
Mr. Giner stated he included in the meeting packet a letter he sent out at Commissioner Ballard’s request to Mr. Daigle. Mr. Giner stated he plans to send a similar letter of acknowledgement to people who registered. He asked if the letter looks good to the Commission and if there are any suggestions.
Chairman Duren stated he thought the letter was good. It gives people that have registered proof that they are registered.
Mr. Giner stated the letter specifies the items they are registered for so that it is clear. Chairman Duren stated this would also give the person that registered a check list and if they feel they should be registered for something else, they can correct it. Mr. Giner stated he takes the information for the check list off the information those that registered have given him.
Commissioner Ballard stated she gave her letter to Mr. Daigle as he had not yet received the letter from the Planning Office in the mail. Mr. Giner stated it was sent April 28, 2010.
Mr. Giner stated he did draw up a map which he will pass around. They recently had the Level A North Thompsonville area mapped by the Connecticut Water Company. Mr. Giner took it and overlaid it over the town’s GIS and zoning map. He noted there are not too many commercial properties. What he also did with the help of IT is he was able to get the property owner addresses and come up with a list. He will be able to mail those people letters directly. Chairman Duren questioned why it hasn’t been done yet. Mr. Giner stated they had to come up with a list and let them know the date of the hearing.
Mr. Giner stated the notification will include all commercial properties. He suspects out of all those commercial properties, the forty-four or so that he counted, about five or six properties will have to register. It is mostly in the area north of the interchange.
Chairman Duren asked if Taylor Rental would be affected. Mr. Giner stated the properties affected are north of the interchange. There is nothing south of the interchange and Taylor Rental is south of the interchange. Mass Mutual would be and the hotel may have some activities. The areas would include east of I-91 up towards Brainard Road.
Chairman Duren asked if Mr. Giner was going to set up an information meeting for these people. Mr. Giner stated he will do so and at the public hearing answer any questions they may have about registrations. Mr. Giner will let them know they have 180 days from the time the Commission adopts the map to register with no fee. The people registering will get the same acknowledgement letters as was sent out to the business on Dust House Road.
Commissioner Falk made a motion, seconded by Commissioner Ballard, to adjourn. Following a unanimous vote, the Agency adjourned at 7:10 p.m.
