Hearings  

Notice of Intent, Craig Bacon, Paddock Road
We received DEP File #277-0462. Green cards received.  Hearing opened at 7:22 PM.  Julian stated they are proposing single family home with well and septic.  Completely out of the flood zone and lot was created prior to Wetland Protection Act so they will be receiving an exemption.  There were no questions.  Motion to close hearing made by Shawn, Scott; vote unanimous at 7:26 PM.  Due to the primary election on March 1, 2016 we will be unable to hold a meeting.  The Board decided to sign the Order of Conditions to remain in compliance with the 21 day timetable.  He was advised not to go forward until all exemptions were received.

Notice of Intent, Scott Landgren, Moulton Mill Road
Prior to the hearing starting, Joe recused himself and turned the meeting over to Peter.  Scott also recused himself and they both left the building prior to the hearing to avoid any perceived impropriety on their part.  We received DEP File #277-0461.  Green cards received.  Hearing opened at 7:46 PM.  Julian presented for Scott.  They are proposing a house with septic, well and driveway.  There is a swamp and there will be no work in the buffer zone or the wetlands.  The Board of Health has already approved the plans.  They had to do a 20 scale cause of the septic and the flags.  Erosion controls are in place.  There were no questions.  Motion to close made by Shawn, seconded by Willard; vote unanimous at 7:50 PM.  Due to the primary election on March 1, 2016 we will be unable to hold a meeting.  The Board decided to sign the Order of Conditions to remain in compliance with the 21 day timetable.  Peter asked if anyone felt there needed to be anything other than the boiler plate conditions added to the project; everyone agreed the standard conditions would suffice.
