S. Taylor asked the Board for advice regarding a sewer line easement on the Workman Project.The easements have been agreed to, and many lots have been conveyed and built on, although some lots only have foundations that have been capped.B. Murphy was concerned that the project is not completely built up, and thought a revision to the Plat would be a clean record of any changes.The Hearing would be short, but would need to be publicly warned.The Steeple Market was discussed.The property is in the Flood Plain.It is a commercial structure and will probably not be rebuilt on the exact footprint of the former church.This project will need to be treated the same way as any other project. If they decide to re-build, a Site Plan Review will be needed and the Flood Plain considerations will need to be addressed.B Murphy left.

Paul Bean stated the action items that were noted during the Sketch Plan Hearing have all been addressed. Documentation is now in the file.Also a copy of the Selectboard Minutes referencing their opinion (that two foot shoulders, along the bridge, would not be needed), is in the file.Wet lands were discussed. Mr. Bean did not think there were any wet lands on their property.If a change due to wetlands was needed, it would be very small and would not effect the density calculations. The new home would be built on the top of a knoll.It was noted that the location of the house on the lot, would need to be shown before a Building Permit would be issued.

 

C. Rainville made a motion to close the hearing to public input and move to deliberative.L. Hayes second.All in favor.
