Agenda was accepted.
Minutes of July 15, 2013, were approved as prepared.
Kitch Barnicle was concerned with the review process for Item #1. She
believed that new notices should have been sent out for the hearing
tonight and she expressed concerns for the quality of the PDFs posted

were to scale.
Ricci noted that it was not required to re-notice an agenda item that
was continued to a date certain as was the case with Item #1 on

project’s scale, siting, and design had been resolved at the July 15th

the quality of the reports and attachments posted on-line and
appreciated the feedback.
