Byron Andrews of Andrews Survey and Engineering joined the meeting to present the plan. The house is legal, pre-existing and non-conforming. The remainder of the lot will conform to zoning.
Mr. Cundiff stated that the problem with the original plan was that there was only one signature of the three owners on the application. Town Counsel advised that it was not a complete application. Since that time, Atty. Jay Talerman has had conversations with the owners and their representatives. He has reviewed the P&S and is satisfied that the ANR plan can be filed.
Mr. Cundiff stated that two notes have been added to the plan. Note #3 relates to the areas being located within the Water Resource Protection Overlay District. Note #2 refers to the Building Commissioner’s letter regarding a difference of opinion regarding the status of the lot after endorsement of the plan.
