Planning Board
May 15, 2019

The May meeting was called to order at 7 p.m. In attendance were Bruce Sanborn, Charles Tarbell, Tom Boughter Sr., Ray Merrill, Ted Gerber, Recording Secretary Cindy Kimball and Chairman Colin Holme along with Code Enforcement Officer Bill Haynes.

The first item on the agenda was a review of the April 2019 minutes. Two minor revisions were needed. Bruce made a motion to accept the minutes as amended. Ray seconded the motion and the vote was 5-0 in favor.

The second item on the agenda was a Shoreland Zoning application from John and Claire Pendergast. Charles requested to be a non-participating PB member as he was representing the Pendergasts. Ted was asked to be a voting member for the application review. John reported by phone and the PB reviewed the application with him. Colin asked that a rock line drip edge be included for water drainage around the structure and John agreed to include it. The PB determined that the set backs and the proposed structure meets the SZ requirements. The structure height shows 26' on the plan, but the basement will be 3' above ground so that has to be added to the total. John agreed to both the rock line drip edge and structure height changes and Colin made the changes on the application. Bruce made a motion to accept the SZ application as presented with the two changes. Ray seconded the motion and the vote was 5-0 in favor. A check for $325 was included in the application and the PB members signed the application.

The next item on the agenda was Brian Rhea of Sage Woods Subdivision. Brian has made considerable changes to the lots in order to better conform to phosphorous control measures. The slope of the land was greater than expected so he combined lots 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8 into two lots of greater size. Lots 5, 6, and 7 are now lots 3, 4, and 5 and have defined building envelopes that will be restricted to driveway entrances off Green Road. Lot 1 has a sizable building envelope with larger buffer zones and will allow driveway access off the Five Kezars Road. Lot 2, also has larger buffer zones and can be accessed from either road and has two building envelopes available to build on. The PB decided the new plan is acceptable. Brian will provide an updated application and maps for the next meeting.

Bruce made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:26 p.m. Tom seconded the motion and the vote was 5-0 in favor.

Respectfully submitted,
Cindy Kimball
