7:45 PM DISCUSSION: Pyne Sand & Stone Company
34 Davis Street
Present on behalf of Pyne Sand & Stone Company was Paul Hutnak of Heritage Design Group. Pyne wants to put in a subdivision in a V/R zoned district consisting of five (5) smaller lots for duplexes. This area is on a very steep slope, which would require earth removal and they would be within 100-feet of abutting property lines. Pyne is looking for direction from the Board as to how the waiver for the 100-foot excavation from property lines would be considered. The Board members feel more effort could be put to Flexible Development – a shorter road, less road width, less lots, etc.
