The scope of the project consists of a three bedroom residential dwelling, driveway, septic system, well and earth cuts and fills. Revised plans were submitted. Drexel said that the Board of Health tentatively approved the plans. Zisk said that erosion controls are to be in place prior to construction. The limit of disturbance needs to be marked on the plan and there are no foundation drains. Cundiff said that the 50-foot and the 100-foot scales are not accurate. Drexel said that these lots are grandfathered with no buildings on them. Yacino asked Drexel to show the buffer zones in color on the plans.
