7:15 PM DISCUSSION: School Project
Present were Mitchell Cohen and Shirley Mosczynski members of the School Building Committee, Fred King of Schofield Brothers, William Brown of Brown/Sardina, Leno Filippi of DiNisco Design and Sam Bird of Heery International. Filippi told the Commission that the bid deadline is November 1, 2011. The project consists of the construction of a new elementary school, renovations on the intermediate school and a track. Handouts included a 2011 Vernal Pool Survey dated 5/4/11 prepared by Kenneth DiNisco, a utility & grading plan (Exhibit – 1) dated 1/21/11, base survey plan (Exhibit – 2) dated 6/15/11, end of swale/fill pile wetland issue plan (Exhibit -4) dated 6/15/11, progress grading plan (Exhibit – 5) dated 6/15/11 and track study plans A1, A2 & B dated 5/13/11. Much discussion regarding the vernal pools on site (2-3), stormwater features for athletic fields, treatment facilities, intermittent and perennial streams and wetlands on the south side of the project. The Commission suggested using Plan A-2 for less of an impact during track construction.

1. Meeting Minutes of 6/6/11. After review, a Motion was made by Brown to approve the Meeting Minutes of Monday, June 6, 2011, as amended, seconded by Van Roo. Vote was unanimous.
2. Ross Smith, 151 Davis Street. Smith present and told the Commission that he is unable to file a NOI at this time due to finances. He asked if he could place straw bales or silt fence for the time being. Yacino said there were two issues: 1) a possible impact to the wetland area and 2) how long will it take Smith to do something permanent. Smith asked if he could file by the last meeting in September. The Commission agreed that Smith place erosion control (straw bales or silt sacks) at the top of the slope of the wetland area and to file a Notice of Intent by no later than September 19, 2011. Zisk was asked to issue an Enforcement Order that states that erosion control is to be in place within 14 days.
