6/2/2008 - Meeting Minutes

Postby Maria Lajoie » Thu Jul 03, 2008 9:38 am

The meeting was called to order at 7:10pm.

Chairwoman Marylynne Dube, Michael Yacino, Linda Brown, Ralph Dudley, Brandi Van Roo, David Windoloski, Angela Saunders (Associate Member), Stephen Zisk (Planning/Conservation Agent) and William Cundiff (Town Engineer). Absent was Leon Mosczynski.

1. Dean & Laura Katragjini, 8 Linden Street. The owners said that the stream is still running and are in to ask the Commission’s permission to clean to the left side of the straw bales and to the right side of the cart path with the machines. The wetlands will not be disturbed. They would like to start the building process: drilling the well, septic system and foundation. They will start the clean up in the center of the lot within the next two weeks after the stream dries up. Yacino stressed how important it was to clean up the site. A MOTION was made by Yacino to begin the process to clean the green areas and prepare the site for the house, seconded by Van Roo. VOTE UNANIMOUS.
2. Shawn Kasper, 42 Conservation Drive. Zisk said that the Kasper’s were informed by the pool company that the filter they chose may back flow into the resource area. It was the consensus of the Commission to have the Kasper’s purchase a self contained filter so there will be no back flushing into the wetlands.
3. Tracy Durand, 137 Martin Road. Michael Yerka of Yerka Engineering wrote a letter dated 5/23/08 to the Commission on behalf of the owner requesting permission to use a recycled asphalt paving mixture instead of other paving materials for the driveway wetland crossing. After discussion, a MOTION was made by Yacino to allow the owner to use a recycled asphalt paving mixture, seconded by Brown. VOTE UNANIMOUS. Yerka had also inquired whether the Wetland Replication Bond was sufficient. Zisk will look into this.
4. 197 Glen Street. Cliff Van Reed contacted Zisk about substituting the red maple trees with serviceberry trees. Gillian Davies of BSC Group felt that this was fine. The Commission had no issue with this.

103 Shore Road
The Commission asked Zisk to contact William Pybas to come to the meeting and give the Commission a letter requesting a continuance because they had not received anything from him. Chesley received a message on her telephone from James Malley of the Board of Health Office stating that the plan is approved but he would be unable to get it to the Commission in time for their meeting tonight but would bring it in tomorrow (6/3/08). William Pybas arrived and asked for a continuance of this Hearing in writing. A MOTION was made by Van Roo to continue the Public Hearing on Monday, June 16, 2008 at 8:00pm, seconded by Windoloski. VOTE UNANIMOUS.

318 Northwest Main Street
Present were the Applicants Richard & Karen Sherlock and their representative Christopher King of Heritage Design Group. The scope of work includes the demolition of an existing house and construction of a new house with no change to existing grading. The Sherlock’s received ZBA approval for a Special Permit.
The proposed new house is approximately 2,000 square feet (the existing house is approximately 1,000 square feet) one bedroom, one bathroom, two decks (one deck is 560 square feet and the smaller one is 60 square feet). The tight tank is outside the 50-foot resource area. No Board of Health upgrades are required. The shed is pre-existing. The Commission wants to see the house moved out of the 50-foot buffer zone. Karen Sherlock said that the house can’t be moved back because there is ledge and would be too costly. The Commission scheduled a site walk for Tuesday, June 3, 2008, at 5:30pm. Zisk was asked to check to see if a final Certificate of Compliance was issued for a prior filing for the tight tank. A MOTION was made by Yacino to continue the Public Hearing on Monday, June 16, 2008, at 8:15pm, seconded by Van Roo. VOTE UNANIMOUS.

177 Wallis Road
Present was Applicant Harriet Van Dyke. There was an error made by the Telegram & Gazette Legal Notice stating that the meeting is to be held in “2006” instead of “2008”. The Commission could not open the meeting and told her that when she calls and places another notice she should not have to pay for it. The Commission scheduled another Public Meeting for her on Monday, June 16, 2008, at 8:30pm.

At 8:37pm, a MOTION was made by Yacino to adjourn the meeting, seconded by Van Roo. VOTE UNANIMOUS.

Respectfully submitted,
Community Development Dept.
