Coastal Waters Commission (the Commission) meeting was called to order at 6:04 pm on August 9, 2017

The June2017 meeting minutes were reviewed and unanimously approved without revision. A motion was made by Ms. Szalaand a second by Mr. Morrissy.

The Harbormaster report was not available this month.

The permit wharf rebuild at 67Shore Drive was considered after initial presentation in July. There will be no need for a ramp or float to be added. Mr. Morrissy moved to approve the permit Mr. Piltch. All members of the Commission were in favor.

Davis -
Mr. Spencer returned for the Davis/Barksdale permit at 250 Wolfe’s Neck Road. In June 2017 the Commission tabled the permit pending a legal opinion and DEP/Army Core decisions.

The Town’s counsel was consulted and did not provide definitive advice relative. The DEP has not responded and will be contacted by the applicants to obtain an determination about the environmental impact of carrying the aluminum sections of the ramp across the marsh. The potential impact to the banking will also be evaluated by the DEP.

The permit was tabled once again.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:28 pm.
