Alternates Present: None

Applicant Present: Wanda Palmer

Public Present: S. Taylor, ZA, Mary Meigs, William Meigs, Robert E. Bessette


7 PM: J. Heyer called the meeting to order. The warning was read, introductions made, and interested people sworn in.


Skip Taylor presented the Administrative Review. There was a change in the final site plan that had increased the width from 30 feet to 50 feet in the right-of-way located at the road access to the property off Rt. 104. Skip had had an earlier conversation with Wanda Palmer about the 50-foot width vs. the 30-foot wide ROW. She expressed a wish to keep the rest of the property in Agriculture and not to have a road that allows access to it. She asked if a 30-ft wide road could be widened to 50 feet later? Yes. The road width would need to be 50 feet for 3 or more homes accessed from that road. Mary Meigs asked if the right to access Lot 2 could be prevented by any future owner of Lot 1. No; the deed should state that the right to use the ROW to access Lot 1 will always be protected. Skip asked Ms. Palmer if she wanted the width to remain 50 ft. wide or 30 feet for its entire length. Ms. Palmer requested it be 30 feet.


The density calculations and dimensional requirements were met. Specifications for the driveway meet Town regulations. There was additional discussion regarding power access to the lot.


J. Beers moved to accept the recommendation of the Zoning Administrator with the 30-ft. ROW; B. Murphy 2nd.All in favor.J. Heyer signed the Findings of Fact and Order.


Respectfully submitted,

Martha Varney, Zoning and Planning Assistant
