See above.

7:10 PM JMT SLEEPY HOLLOW, LLC (PRE 151201): Application for a Preliminary Subdivision Plan, 439 Northeast Main Street, 34 & 36 Davis Street
Karina Quinn and Normand Gamache of Guerriere and Halnon joined the meeting. Ms. Quinn stated that the site is approximately 22 acres. It is made up of three parcels. Twenty-three of the lots will front on the proposed road, and five lots will front on existing rights-of way. Two lots have structures on them already. Those lots will be reconfigured.
They are proposing on-site individual septic systems with town water coming off of Northeast Main Street. They may request waivers for planting trees, for the length of the roadway and for sidewalks on just one side of the road. Mr. Cundiff stated that a written list of waiver requests is required to be submitted.
The wetlands are located on the west side of the project. They were investigated by Judy Smith and EcoTech. There is a perennial stream. The wetland crossing will no longer be needed.
Mr. Cundiff asked that the drawing show the existing property lines.
Ms. Quinn presented the drainage design. There will be 14 catch basins and three hydrants. The electrical and water mains are all within the easement. There will be zero increase in flow of storm water off the site.
Ms. Quinn stated that the Conservation Commission stated that they needed to file a Notice of Intent. Ms. Quinn did receive Mr. Cundiff’s comments requesting a traffic flow impact, an easement around the drainage swale, and show the existing property boundaries on the definitive plan.
Mr. Cundiff stated that Monroe Street has an easement, and he is not sure where the frontage should be taken from: the easement or the edge of the property. Mr. Cundiff wants to be sure there is access to the perimeter of the infiltration basins. Ms. Quinn stated that all the catch basins and manholes will be labeled on the definitive plan.
A discussion was held regarding the perennial stream. Ms. Quinn showed the wetland buffer zone on the map.
Mr. Cundiff stated that some of the lots could be created from ANR plans. Mr. Cundiff asked Ms. Quinn to look into whether or not there is a drainage easement across the abutting property downstream from infiltration basin #2. Mr. Zwicker suggested using one lot, not for a house, but for the sediment and infiltration units to make it easier for the Town to get in there to clean the basin. A discussion was held.
Mr. Zwicker would like to know if there is a house directly across from the opening of the proposed road. Mr. Cundiff asked Ms. Quinn to label the offset from Charles Street to the proposed road.
Mr. Cundiff asked if the applicant would consider hooking up to town sewer. Mr. Chesebrough asked why the applicant decided on a conventional subdivision. Ms. Quinn stated that the design blends in with the existing neighborhood. Mr. Cundiff stated that the regulations require that the applicant look at the different types of subdivisions.
This item will be placed on the January 12, 2016 meeting agenda at 7:00 PM.
Jeremy Flansburg , 63 Monroe Street, asked if the applicant will have to go through another Earth Removal Permit process. Mr. Cundiff stated that they will if they remove more than 300 cu. yards off of the site. Mr. Flansburg asked the applicant to consider putting in town sewer to protect the brook trout.

DISCUSSION:
1. Email from Daniel Heney dated 11/16/15 regarding status of Summerlyn Estates (Wildfire Drive). Mr. Cundiff stated that Mr. Heney responded with a timeline.
2. 2016 Meeting Schedule. Mr. Zwicker made a motion to accept the Planning Board 2016 Meeting Schedule with the amendment of eliminating the second meetings in June, July and August. Mr. Greco seconded the motion. Vote: Unanimous.
3. 2015 Annual Report (Due before January 31, 2016). Mr. Cundiff will have a draft ready for the next meeting.
