Shorts from the Board of Selectmen, July 22

· Caroline Hill Scholarships. Recipients are Carlisle residents pursuing college education, and include: Andrew Daltas, Daniel Faucher, Karina and Katrina Przyjemski, and Larissa and Tatiana Winey.

The Selectmen discussed the size of the scholarship awards in relation to the size of the Scholarship fund, currently about $120,000. While this year's awards exceed the amount earned during the year in interest, the selectmen agreed to continue the awards at the size of recent years, and authorized a total of $6,500 in grants.

· Appointment and Retirement. Gordon Means was appointed to a one-year term on the Conservation Restriction Advisory Committee (CRAC). Steve Tobin has stepped off the CRAC, and the Selectmen agreed to send Tobin a letter of thanks for his years of work on the committee.

· Site Plan Review Fee. The Selectmen voted to set a fee of $400 for the review of Francine Amari-Faulkner's barn conversion at 43 Bedford Road. The board is considering lowering their fee for a site plan review from $1,000 to $500, and in this case, the applicant had already paid the Board of Appeals a $100 fee for review of this project under the Distinctive Structure bylaw.

· 40B status. The Laurel Hollow project application is currently before the Board of Appeals and the Conservation Commission, undergoing peer reviews. This project is for land on Lowell Street. The Carlisle Woods development (off Maple Street) has not yet filed a formal application with the Town Clerk.
