    (The Planning Board agreed in concept to staff's suggestion of an earlier deadline for applicants submitting items for Planning Board meetings. Staff indicated that it will likely establish a new deadline that is on the last day of the month preceding the Planning Board meeting. This would essentially result in a 3-4 week advance submission, which is still later than some other municipalities)
