Council Appoints Collett

December 16, 1990

MANCHESTER - One of this town's longest-serving planning officials has been named to the council seat left open earlier this month when Earl A. J. "Tim" Warehime Jr. became mayor.

Charlotte B. Collett, who in July stepped down from a 15-year stint as chairwoman of the Planning and Zoning Commission, was unanimously selected during a council meeting Tuesday night to fill Warehime's seat. She was chosen from among four others: Larry Gouker, John Timberman, Douglas Myers and John Etzel Jr.

Collett, a lifelong resident and Manchester history buff, will fill the seat until 1993. She is 64.

Warehime, who faces an election in May, became mayor Dec. 3 when Elmer C. Lippy Jr. began his job as a County Commissioner.

In other business Tuesday, the council: * Adopted R-15,000 zoning, which will allow one house on a 15,000-square-foot lot. That zoning, in the works for months, creates an intermediate step between R-10,000, which allows four houses per acre, and R-20,000, which allows two houses per acre.

* Reappointed Miriam DePalmer as the town's zoning administrator.

* Urged town residents to fight any school board redistricting plans that would call for the busing of Manchester students into Hampstead. Such a possibility may occur when Hampstead's Spring Garden Elementary School is finished by next fall.
