PLANNING BOARD MEETING MINUTES
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2017

A meeting of the Planning Board was held on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 Mr. Marks called the meeting to order at 7:04 PM and announced that the meeting is being recorded and will be available on cable and on the website.

ATTENDANCE:
PRESENT: Ernest Marks (Chairman), Ken Ballou, Michael Greco, Tracy Sharkey (Vice Chairperson), Les Stevens, Michael Zwicker
ABSENT: Aaron Socrat
NON-VOTING: William Cundiff (Town Engineer)

7:04 PM PUBLIC HEARING CONTINUED: CAROL GOGOLINSKI & WILLIAM COGLEY, Application for a Definitive Subdivision Plan (DEF-170222) Entitled “Gilboa Court Extension”, 30 Gilboa Court.
Mr. Cundiff stated that he received a letter from the Post Office stating that they do not feel that a central mailbox is necessary for the project.
Mr. Cundiff distributed a chart regarding who can participate in voting, and three affirmative votes are needed to approve the project.
Mr. Cundiff summarized the draft decision. He suggested including the lot with the existing house in the no-build covenant. That lot would be released when the binder of pavement for the road is in. General Conditions are all standard conditions. A letter from the Water/Sewer Dept. has not yet been received. Mr. Cundiff suggested that the plan not be endorsed today in order to allow time to receive that letter and also to give time for the applicant to provide a no-build covenant, which Town Counsel needs to review.
JP Connelly of Andrews Survey and Engineering joined the meeting, and he stated that he had no issue with the draft decision. The only change to the plan since the last meeting was that a note was added relating to the title of the lots being the date after the decision. The water easement going to the back lot was added to the plan. The central mailbox will be removed.
Ms. Gogolinski stated that there will only be water lines, no sewer lines.
Felix Yacino, 24 Gilboa Court asked that no work start before 7:00 AM. Mr. Cundiff stated that the conditions state that the hours of operation shall be between 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM on Saturdays and no work on Sundays or on holidays recognized by the Commonwealth. The Planning Board does not have jurisdiction over the individual lots or the activity on those lots, just the subdivision road and the infrastructure for the subdivision. Mr. Yacino asked about the appeal period. He was told that he has 20 days after the decision.
Ms. Sharkey made a motion to grant the requested waivers from sections 4.2.2j, 5.1.1b, 5.1.3e, 5.1.4a, 6.1.4, 6.2, 6.4, and 6.6 as previously requested for Application for a Definitive Subdivision Plan (DEF-170222) entitled “Gilboa Court Extension”, 30 Gilboa Court, for Carol Gogolinski and William Cogley.

7:21 PM ANR PLAN: DAVID CAHILL (#2017-16), Lakeshore Drive.
Lance Anderson of Heritage Design Group joined the meeting. The plan involves four ANR lots belonging to Susan Morin and David and Janice Cahill. The lots do not qualify as a subdivision because it involves division of land off an established way that exists on the Town Clerk’s list.
Mr. Cundiff stated that Mr. Cahill previously addressed the Board regarding the status of Lakeshore Drive. At that time, the Board felt that Lakeshore Drive did not meet suitable width, grade and construction. Mr. Cahill was given direction and has done work on the road. The Fire Chief, Police Chief and Highway Superintendent all submitted letters stating that the road now meets their standards for safety and access. Mr. Cundiff feels that this plan is ready to go.
Mr. Cahill described the work he did and the material he used for the road. There are no wetlands.
The road is on the Town’s list as a private way. It is now a separate parcel labeled as “not a buildable lot” and Ms. Morin and the Cahills retain interest in the road. An easement was granted for public safety apparatus access.
Ms. Sharkey made a motion endorse the ANR plan (#2017-16) for David Cahill, Lakeshore Drive. Mr. Zwicker seconded the motion. Vote: Unanimous.
