Bourne Planning Board Chairman Elmer Clegg, after a two-year stint, relinquished the gavel to board member Steve Strojny June 16.
The move came during the board’s annual reorganization of the officer slate.
Strojny thanked Clegg for his chairmanship efforts and the way he treated people and projects arriving before the board.
Clegg will remain as board vice chairman, hoping to work on two projects. They include parking issues involving the town, Massachusetts Maritime Academy, the National Marine Life Center, west-end merchants and property owners, as well as the chamber of commerce.
Clegg will also work toward the end of pretrial negotiations and deliberations between town officials and Cumberland Farms.
The convenience store chain has secured Bourne Planning Board approval for a new store at the Bourne rotary. But it is contesting a condition that would force its customers to depart the premises via MacArthur Boulevard southbound instead of back into the heavily-traveled rotary at the foot of the Bourne Bridge.
Veteran board member Dan Doucette will serve as clerk on the newly-organized board.
