                 Moved by Ed C, seconded by Don and passed unanimously that the minutes of the Sep. 13 meeting be accepted as presented, with correction of the date.

                 It was moved, seconded and passed that the accessory building letter be sent to Bill Foye as is.

                 Regarding the slash letter, Stephen Harvey said from his point of view it was desirable that grinding occur on site, not at the Town Dump.  It was moved by Ed, seconded by Don and passed without further discussion that the slash letter be sent.


2)  Old Business

                               Tree Ordinance

                 No significant discussion.  It will be put on the agenda for the first 2004 meeting.


                               Growth Maintenance Ordinance

                 Harvey:  Raymond considered a growth limit; instead they have improved the requirements on lots and building.

                 Ed C:  How is this handled as to development of tiny lots?

                 Harvey:  Even tiny lots can have a restriction on percentage coverage.

                 Ed C:  Frye Island should have a future growth/economic model. 

                            Should there be a size requirement for replacement  of a dwelling unit?  Ed C and Paul were appointed as a sub-committee to look into this.


3)  New Business

                 Changes in the 50 foot buffer zone will be put on the agenda for the first meeting in 2004. 

                 Warrant Article 11 (loophole re lot merger) from last July: Because this should not have come to the Town for a vote after tabling by the BIT, Treacy moved, Marge seconded, and passed unanimously to re-submit the Warrant Article 11 to the Selectmen.


                 At 9:47 a.m. it was moved and passed to adjourn.
