Hearing opened at 7:40 P.M. Green cards received. Mike just asked if the water level will be affected with all the work. Julian said no, he should not have a problem. Jennifer asked Julian who he specifically has dealt with and asked him to not be general when saying he went walking with DCR. Julian told her a list of people he had dealt with. Julian said are in the 100’ and closest point is 5 feet. It will have town sewer. Mike asked what if he has a problem in the future – Julian said he is at least 15 feet higher than the water so it shouldn’t go towards him, and he shouldn’t have a problem.

Notice of Intent, CB Blair Development, Lot 7, Prescott Street

Notice of Intent, River Road Estates, LLC, Lot 1, River Road

Hearing Opened at 7:55 P.M. They are building a single family home. This will have a septic – 100 feet away from the buffer zone. The driveway has a variance already. Some grading will be done. This is the only one over there that needs a Notice of Intent because they are within 100 feet. Jennifer asked if there is a file number from DEP, because she didn’t think we could close hearing without a file number. Joe told her the hearing can be closed, but the Order can not be issued without a file number. Motion to close hearing made by Shawn; seconded by Peter; vote unanimous at 7:57 P.M.

Discussions
Rob McNeil, Determination of Applicability, Takala Property, Kenwood Drive and Walnut Street

Ralph is looking for soil evaluations on the property for possible ANR’s (Abbreviated Notice of Resource Area Delineation); it was treed a few years back but there is a lot of growth that has happened. They are looking for a Negative Determination so they can clean the area to do testing. They are planning on using a FECON mower to clean up the area for testing and surveying. Peter asked how far down it will go. Rob said inches. They don’t want to go too far down and will leave the chippings.  


Determination of Applicability, CB Blair Development, Lot 4, Main Street

Julian said this is a middle lot. There is not much grading and will be outside of the buffer zone.  


Determination of Applicability, CB Blair Development, Lot 8, Prescott Street

Julian said they will be outside of the buffer zone.
