Hearings  

Notice of Intent, Justin Miner, 63 Turkey Hill Road
We received DEP File #277-0460. Green cards received.  Hearing opened at 7:14 PM.  Mark Blanchard came in as representative.  They are proposing a single family house.  There will be a flat grade for the driveway.  They did everything they could do to stay out of the wetlands.  Mostly all wetlands are behind the rock wall.  Erosion control measures have been placed.  They may want to take a couple of trees down but nothing past the wall.  Motion to close hearing made by Scott, seconded by Eric; vote unanimous at 7:22 PM.

Discussions

Order of Conditions, 5 & 7 Phillips Road
Shawn asked if they needed 2 Orders because of the two house numbers.  Joe said no because they are being merged into one lot.

By-laws
Peter removed the accounting information and it reads much better.  He also added the “Appeal Section” at the end.  This is pretty much finishes up with us.  Peter will be sending to everyone on the Conservation Commission board for review and final feedback at the next meeting, after which it will be sent on to Margaret.

Peter is going to work next week on the Earth Alteration By-law.  Peter questioned the current Earth Removal By-law that we currently have.  Joe said that we are trying to replace the old one and implement the new one.  Eric said we should make sure the old By-law is dead if this one is to replace it, and Peter said he plans on repealing the old one specifically in the new one.
