Present were Kenneth DiNisco (DiNisco Design Partnership), Fred King (Scofield Brothers), Sam Bird (Clerk of the Works) and Mitch Cohen (School Building Committee). A site walk was done. A Habitat Evaluation was submitted. There was much discussion about the 160-acre project with regard to the wetland areas, resource areas, buffer zones, vernal pool and wetland replication. Also discussed was a utilities plan and stormwater management. Zisk asked if they were proposing to construct the new paved track now and will it change the analysis. DiNisco said it will be built if there is enough money and that it would not change the analysis. Regarding the track, Van Roo asked what she would see in two years and DiNisco said that if the track is not built when the school is, the layout will be there and Van Roo will see grass. Also discussed were wetland impacts, emergency overflows and NPDES for each phase. There will be a “condition” in the Order of Conditions stating that “within guidelines per Order of Conditions and to be approved by the Conservation Commission”. Cundiff suggested that a Commission member attend pre-construction conferences prior to each phase and as a “condition” include a copy of stormwater management. DiNisco said that the haul road will be built in the fall (early December) and then the contractor has access to the site. The road surface will be recycled asphalt and the site will be cleared when the ground is frozen. Discussed traffic issues during construction, upland shrubs on the slope area will be a mix with six (6) inches of loam. The hill will be stabilized with rip rap but will meet with Zisk and Cundiff to discuss. Yacino asked if there will be a fence on the barrier during construction and DiNisco said yes – fencing. Cundiff said that DiNisco did an excellent job on the design of stormwater calculations. Zisk said that his initial comments were addressed and changed. DiNisco said that the Habitat Report is a sound plan. After discussion, a Motion was made by Brown to continue the Public Hearing on Tuesday, September 6, 2011, at 8:00pm, seconded by Van Roo. Vote was unanimous.

MEETING MINUTES OF 7/11, 8/1, 8/15 will be approved at the next meeting.
