A request by member Ryne Kitzrow would change the Conservation Advisory group's name from Commission to Board. This would not essentially change its powers, but they would receive notice of new projects related to the Open Space Inventory. It still will be operating in "advisory" capacity. A new member, Gavin Chaing, was added as a Youth Conservation Advisory Commission member with a term effective through December 31, 2023.
In other business, the granting of a Peddler's Permit to Sebastian Bell of Trinity Solar (based on a successful background check and Town Attorney revies) sparked a brief discussion of whether there should or could be time limits on when sales persons can knock on people's doors and come on their private property. Jeroloman stated that it's a constitutional issue, and that while they can't restrict people with licenses from knocking on doors, homeowners may either add their name to a "No Solicitation" list kept at Town Hall, and/or any homeowner can post a "No Soliciting" sign at the entrance to their property and/or on their front door.
