A meeting of the Planning Board was held on Tuesday, August 9, 2011. Mr. Marks called the meeting to order at 7:03 PM and announced that the meeting is being recorded and will be available on cable and on the website.

7:03 PM LETTER FROM RAYMOND & JEANNETTE FEARING, 133 PERRY STREET DATED 7/19/11 CONCERNING THE COMMON DRIVEWAY
Mr. Marks noted a letter from Raymond and Jeannette Fearing who share a common driveway with two other residents one of which does not contribute to the cost of plowing. Mr. Zisk noted that Town Counsel has reviewed copies of the deeds, the special permit and the declaration of common driveway and have indicated that the Town has no role in such a dispute. In addition, both the special permit and covenant expressly disavow any role of the Town. Some discussion held. It was the consensus to follow the advice of Counsel.

7:09 PM REQUEST FOR ACCESSORY APARTMENT SPECIAL PERMIT EXTENSION: RUSSELL & HEATHER CARLSON, 121 WALLUM LAKE ROAD
The request for Accessory Apartment Special Permit Extension for Russell & Heather Carlson at 121 Wallum Lake Road was reviewed. It was noted that although the affidavit was signed, none of the boxes were checked off therefore nothing is known about the original approval. It was suggested that moving forward, a copy of the original permit be attached to the renewal. In addition, it was suggested that a process be implemented to determine if the taxes are paid. Discussion held. Mr. Zisk suggested having an area on the form for the tax collector to confirm that taxes have been paid. The Board agrees with this process.
Mr. Chesebrough made a motion to approve the renewal for the accessory apartment for Russell and Heather Carlson on 121 Wallum Lake Road. Mr. Zwicker seconded the motion. Vote unanimous.

7:21 PM EARTH REMOVAL SPECIAL PERMIT FOR DeVRIES, BEDOIAN & PYNE: REQUEST TO RELEASE SPECIAL PERMIT AND BOND
Mr. Zisk noted included in the packet is a copy of the original request along with a letter from each of the owners. He reviewed a schematic of the area indicating how it has evolved over the last several years. He noted that a phasing plan was implemented which would involve one permit, which would be updated and reviewed by the Board after a three-year period. Discussion held including the material being stock piled and the process moving forward. It was agreed that a special permit would be the best way to deal with parcel G. Ms. Sharkey made a motion to release the bond for parcel F. Mr. Zwicker seconded the motion. Vote unanimous.

7:45 PM LAKEWOOD ESTATES: SIGN MYLAR
Mr. Zisk noted that Town Counsel reviewed the deed and covenant. There are outstanding issues regarding the title certification. It was the consensus to table this until all issues have been resolved.
