7:15 PM Introductions were made, the Public Notice was read, and attendees signed in. Interested parties were sworn in.

C. Collins, Engineer made the presentation. The purpose of the revision is to reconfigure the development to meet the Town and

Act 250 requirement for single story buildings with a building height not to exceed 21 feet. The proposal would reduce the number of units from 19 to 18 - all duplexes. All homes are on one lot, with each homeowner owning a share of the overall acreage. Sidewalks, common land, storm water, and well water issues were all discussed in detail. Act 250 required the developer to escrow money to cover possible well water issues for certain neighboring properties for five years.

 

The following interested parties each voiced their questions and concerns regarding the project:

W. Parker: Water Problems; water pressure issues; safety of retention pond; recreational use of woods for neighbors of development

E. Parker: If water problems, how will escrow money be used? (examples given were for hydro-fraction and water storage)

P. Lavallee: Water pressure; sidewalks he believes that every home should have a sidewalk in front; questioned water storage tank

(it will be underground); incorrect lot line at his home showing on Plat; Location of hedges.

J. Hochberg: Yield of well over time; order and timing of construction;

K. Jenness: Concerned about digging for pump station in front of her business; culverts; privacy from development (a hedge will be put up along property line)

A. Senecal Developer: Clarified various points of discussion

 

A letter from the Selectboard was read regarding Town of Fairfax Septic System Issues. The following items were submitted into evidence:

1) Letter to DRB from Selectboard, regarding Town of Fairfax Septic System, signed July 19, 2010

2) Letter to Ruggiano Engineering from Randy DeVine, Superintendent Wastewater Treatment Facility, signed 07/19/2010.

 

The following items were identified as possible conditions:

2) Resolution of Septic Issue with the Town of Fairfax, before any Building Permit would be issued.

 

B. Murphy made a motion to close the hearing to public input and move to deliberative. M. Varney second.

All in favor.
