the minutes would be made available to anyone who asked for them
five days after the meeting, but it would only be a rough draft.

Chair Condon asked Mr. Ledgerwood if he came to speak to the group or
just to watch the meeting. Mr. Ledgerwood expressed his concerns about letting
the Antrim 2020 lose its momentum. Several members of the Board let him know
that their groups had meetings scheduled over the next several weeks.
It was decided that the Board would like more time going over the final Antrim Community Profile
packet and they would like to in align with Masterplan. They will bring their ideas for discussion to the next meeting.

Mr. Ledgerwood came before the Board to let them know that he has a quarterly Commissioner’s
meeting coming up on January 11 and he will come back before the Board to let them know what
he learned. The Board gave Mr. Ledgerwood some ideas that he can discuss with the other Commissioners.

Highway Business District. Mr. Mack also expressed an interest in talking with the Selectmen about the Rt. 9 rest area.
