Ms. Sharkey made a motion to approve the minor modification of a 7’ x 13’ x 6’ enclosed entryway mudroom at 57 Eagle Drive as presented. This request does not require a public hearing. Mr. Zwicker seconded the motion. Vote: Unanimous.
Ms. Loshusan and her father left the meeting.
2. Reschedule or Cancel 9/9/14 Meeting (State Primary), Option-9/10/14: It was the consensus of the Board to reschedule the September 9, 2014 meeting to September 10, 2014.
3. Sign: Pyne Sand & Stone Company (ER 140602) 439 & 447 Northeast Main Street: Mr. Cundiff stated that this is a standard boilerplate decision. Mr. Cundiff stated that Mr. Pyne asked for the permit to be for a one-year period. Mr. Cundiff reviewed the Special Conditions. He included language suggested by the applicant’s counsel regarding the easement on private property for the Town to use as a public way. Mr. Cundiff does not yet have a letter from the Board of Selectmen. There is no language regarding blasting. In the past, the board has deferred to the Fire Chief regarding blasting. There is a vibration nuisance condition.
Jim Pyne of Pyne Sand & Stone asked the Board to waive the clause requiring monthly written status reports by the first of each month for the duration of the project. It was the consensus of the Board to require reports upon request.
A discussion was held regarding the section about the guardrail. Mr. Pyne stated that he is not excavating in the area where a guardrail is needed. At the end of the section, it was agreed to add “…in consultation with an engineer and Superintendent of Highways.”
Mr. Pyne left the meeting.
4. Sign: Louis Tusino (MOD 140528), Cardinal Drive. Mr. Cundiff stated that the plan they had submitted from Hawk Surveying was an 81W Modification Plan and it was confusing. It showed some boundary lines from the originally approved subdivision and the current ANR Plan. A final drawing reflecting the most current boundary lines is needed. He thought a new set of civil drawings would be needed, but they are exactly the same as what was originally approved. Therefore, instead of requiring mylars, he included language that says, under Findings, 3) that work associated with Dogwood Lane is complete, 4) that the decision does not supersede the previous decision but does remove the deed restriction condition, and 5) that the request for the removal of the deed restriction applies only to the Cardinal Drive parcel. Work remains to be completed on Cardinal Drive.
Mr. Cundiff reviewed the special conditions. The condition listed as #2 was waived, #4 and #6 were removed. Number 4 was changed to create a deed restriction to limit the total number of house lots to a total of three. Number 5 was changed to read that no structures can be built within 400 feet of Ken Ballou’s property, unless Mr. Ballou’s permission is received. Mr. Cundiff will come up with language, with the assistance of Town Counsel, to say that the 400 feet condition applies only to Ken Ballou and his heirs, but to no other future owners of the property.
Louis Tusino presented something to the Board regarding Wallum Lake Terrace and someone trying to put houses on Shore Road. Mr. Tusino owns the right-of-ways. He presented some of the deeds. He asked the Board to review the issue. Mr. Tusino and Bill Pybas left the meeting.
5. Sign: Gilboa Properties, LLC (SPR 140611), 120 Gilboa Street. Mr. Marks said the Board approved the plan and it is up to the applicant if they want to file with the Registry of Deeds.
6. Update: Solar Project, 436 Northeast Main Street. Mr. Cundiff stated that he has an email request from Kevin Donegan regarding the Bosma Solar Farm. Mr. Cundiff stated that they went to the location a couple months ago and did not find any areas that were deficient in topsoil thickness. The area has been seeded. Mr. Cundiff passed around some photos. The Board was in consensus that the condition of the topsoil and grass has been met. Mr. Donegan left the meeting.
7. Sign: Accessory Apartment Special Permit Extension: Russell & Heather Carlson, 121 Wallum Lake Road. There was no discussion.
Ms. Sharkey made a motion to approve the Accessory Apartment Special Permit Extension, Russell & Heather Carlson, 121 Wallum Lake Road. Mr. Chesebrough seconded the motion. Vote: Unanimous.
8. Review: ZBA Special Permit Application: Anthony Ciccione, 283 Southwest Main Street. Ms. Sharkey presented the application to demolish an existing single family home of 784 sq. ft. and a 128 sq. ft. shed, and build a proposed structure of 1624 sq. ft. Ms. Sharkey is concerned that they are going from seasonal to year-round and constructing a home over twice the size of what currently exists. They are in a flood plain and proposing a garage under.
