May 10, 2011


Planning Board members present:  Chairman Palmer Little, Secretary Sylvia Wardwell, Michael Rossney, John Allen, David Webb, Alternate Jim Wood.


Also present:  CEO Duane Ford, William McHenry, James Robbins, Selectman Victor Smith, Assistant to the Selectmen Barbara Grindle.


Map 7, Lot 10-8 – Amy Woodward, represented by Architect McHenry, presented house plans located on her lot in the Osprey Subdivision.  It will be approximately 130 ft back from the water and will be a 3 bedroom home of around 2500 square feet.  They are waiting for bids to build the home at the present time.  The application was given to the CEO for inspection and permitting.


Map 7, Lot 44-4 – James Robbins wishes to retail seafood from his home.  He presented a site plan application and  was told that he needed approval from HOME Co-op since they own the land under his house, he needs to notify the abutters by certified letter, bringing a copy of the letter and the receipts of mailing to the board next month.  He also needs to be inspected and licensed by the State.  The board needs a copy of that license.  He needs to have adequate parking also.


Selectman Smith notified the Board that DEP has approved work on the Shore Road and the access there.  Billings Cove Road will be receiving some roadside trimming.  He updated them on the Walker Pond road.  Hopefully the road will go out to bid by next month.  There will be three stages of work, i.e. 1) clearing, 2) erosion control, and 3) road work.  Andrew McCullough will be getting the specs out shortly for the bidding.  The idea is to get a 10 foot construction road in by fall.  We have 2 years to complete the first stage of the project, 4 years to complete the project, and then it will be inspected every 10 years.    


CEO Ford reported that there a lot going on in town, but nothing of particular interest.  DEP had called about the metal collection area at a private home, that he is a class N industrial polluter and is not licensed.  The Lowell Thomas/Philip McCarthy case has gone before the court and Mr. Thomas may keep his pond. 


There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:45 pm
