Vice Chair opened the meeting and read the AGENDA.

She asked Peter Roy to become a voting member for the evening.

All stood for the pledge of allegiance.

Mr. Stevenson asked David Wright 908 Main Street to present his conceptual plan for gun sales at his home.  Mr. Wright explained that he and his wife will be seeking a Federal Firearm License (FFL) from the state.  But first he has to have an approval from the town. He intends to sell firearms from his home.  His house is protected by ADT and his Ring security system.  This system is connected to the ADT emergency operator and the police department.  He will be selling firearms online and by word of mouth.


Kim Koprowski asked Mr. Wright how people contact him.  He said “social media” work of mouth.  Peter Roy asked if firearms are purchased by a phone call.  Yes, and then the process begins with a background check.  Johnathan Stevenson asked how many weapons he had at home at one time.  He answered all his firearms are locked up.  Also, only gun brokers and wholesalers are allowed to sell to FFL. Everything is stocked by serial number.  His business will be more stringent than a gun store.  Peter asked about Fed-ex delivering.  Mr. Wright said only him, or his wife will be able to sign for the delivery of firearms.  Kim asked if there would be any type of firing range.  No there will not.  There was a discussion about Site Plan Review and abutters.

Peter Roy motion to waive Site Plan Review for David Wright online gun sales at 908 Main Street. And to approve the request for his home business.  Anthony Rodrigues second.  3-2 passed
