At its Jan. 31 meeting, the Warren Board of Selectmen voted to appoint Shawn Saindon to the Planning Board.

Saindon and his wife, Amanda Beal, moved to Warren from Portland more than a year ago.

"We fell in love with the area, and want to be involved and give back," Saindon said of his wanting to be on the board.

He is in the midst of building his own creamery called Feildstone Farm & Creamery at his Wotton's Mill Road home, and plans on producing and selling hand-crafted cheeses..

Saindon fills the vacancy left by Bill O'Donnell.
