Zimmer reported that John McMichael had discussed retiring from the WAB and Planning Board due to health issues. She said no new applications had been forwarded from the Planning Board.

Silvestro thought it would be a good idea for the not-for-profits and Town organizations to have tables in the Town Hall.
