7:40 PM PUBLIC HEARING: DAVID CELLUCCI (NOI)
137 Martin Road
Present on behalf of the Applicant was Michael Yerka of Yerka Engineering. The scope of work consists of construction of a wetland crossing for a single family home and the Applicant proposes to install a floorless culvert for the intermittent stream crossing. Yerka said that the property is 7 ¾ acres (3 lots). The existing cart road will be widened to 12-feet that will be paved and crushed stone on the one to one side slopes. A 3-sided box culvert and 15-inch concrete (RCP) will be used for the wetland crossing. The total wetland disturbance will be 2,250 square feet of a bordering vegetated wetland. Cundiff asked for details about the culvert and Yerka said that it will be from Omega Bridges and it comes in 6-foot sections. Dube asked for a complete replication before building the single family home. Also the Commission informed Yerka that they want two bonds: one for replication and one for the culvert. The Commission scheduled a site walk on Sunday January 13, 2008 at 9:00am. A MOTION was made by Yacino to continue the Public Hearing on Tuesday, January 22, 2008, at 8:45pm, seconded by Brown.

37 Glen Street, Lot #1B
Present on behalf of the Applicant was William Pybas, Employee. The scope of work consists of the construction of a new single family home, septic system, well and driveway. Pybas said that there would be no earth removed on this lot. Zisk asked Pybas to place hay bales along the entire down slope side of the project and along Glen Street to prevent any sediment from leaving the site. Zisk also asked Pybas to show on the plan any temporary sediment basins associated with the project. The Planning Board issued an Earth Removal Special Permit but the Board of Health has not approved these two lots yet (septic systems & wells).
Cundiff is concerned with the large amount of material being removed and asked if any of the processing was going to be done on site. Yacino asked Pybas if perk tests were done and Pybas said that he thought they were approved by the Board of Health but he will check. Zisk said that Jim Malley is waiting to do perk tests when the gravel is removed. A MOTION was made by Yacino to continue the Public Hearing on Monday, February 4, 2008, at 7:30pm, seconded by Dudley. VOTE UNANIMOUS.
