Discussions
Rob McNeil, Takala Property, Kenwood Drive and Walnut Street

The part we are discussing was part of a Forest Cutting Plan. The area has grown back and the plan is to shear, chip and open up all the saplings – basically all the ones under three feet so they can do samplings, etc. They are filing a Request for Determination. They do plan on leaving the chippings, etc. on the property. They are only doing a parallel line to the road in the front. October 18th at 7:15 P.M. will be discussion. The machinery will be a FECON Mower on a shear--it will be a low footprint. Dick Williams asked if the land has been removed from 61A and Rob McNeil said no, they will be coming out one lot at a time as they build.


Julian Votruba, River Road, Prescott Street and Main Street Submissions

Joe asked the board when a site walk can be done. They agreed on October 16th at 10:00 AM meeting at the fruit stand.
