Planning Board,  April 14, 2009


The Sedgwick Planning Board met at the Town Office at 7 pm as scheduled.

Board members present:  Victor Smith, Acting Chairman, David Webb, John Allen, Sylvia Wardwell, Secretary and Alternate James Wood.

Also present:  CEO Duane Ford, Selectman Nelson Grindal, Gordon Gianninoto, Paul Trowbridge, Horace Wardwell, Robert Gray, Hugh Durgin, Steven Theohardis, Jon and Jane Thomas from the Packet and Barbara Grindle, Assistant to the Selectmen.

Map 11, Lot 23 – Horace Wardwell picked up an application for a 10 x 12 storage shed.  He filled out and paid for a building notification form for the building.           

Map 2, Lot 10 – Gordon Gianninoto informed the Board that all abuttors have been notified of his cell tower application.  The Board will do a site visit Friday, May 8 at 7 pm.  The parent company from Vermont wishes to attend the site visit to answer any question that the board may have. A public hearing will be held after the visit.

Map 7, Lot 3 – Robert Gray came before the Board for an application to build a bulk gas  facility for his propane gas business. It will be located 300 yards off Rt 15 and 100 feet off Grist Mill Lane.  The application was taken under advisement.  The Planning Board will visit the site on Thursday, April 16 at 5 pm.  He was given a Site Plan Ordinance.                                           

Map 4, Lot 1-1 – Paul Trowbridge produced the abuttor notice cards.  The lots are marked out, and test pits are done on the Snow Cove Sanctuary subdivision.  The Board will inspect the site on Thursday, April 16 after inspecting the project of Mr Gray, which is across the road.  He will erect a sign on the property as soon as possible.

Map 7, Lot 27, 28 – Hugh Durgin, representing Steve Theohardis for a gravel road off his cranberry bog following an existing woods road. This will eventually lead to a single family home.  The road is inside the shoreland zone, but the house will be outside of the zone.  He already had a building permit from some time ago, so he paid the $25 application fee.  CEO Ford had already visited the site and now the extensive paperwork for the DEP permits must be completed.  The application was for a Tier I permit, but DEP has required more information, making this an individual permit (similar to Tier III)

A letter has been received from Mr Spofford’s lawyers regarding the wind tower project on Caterpillar Hill.  There is a great deal of paperwork to be done before they can be back to the Planning Board.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:25 pm

Respectfully submitted,

Barbara Grindle, Assistant to the Selectmen
