Minutes of October 7, 2008. Upon comment by C. Tadema-Wielandt, J. Holt moved to amend the minutes as follows: In the minutes of October 7, 2008, all references to the Marlboro Woods Subdivision should be referred to as the Marlboro Woods II subdivision. The minutes were approved as amended.
Gravel Pit Permit – RF Jordan & Sons, Map 4, Lot 8. The name of the Pit's owner was correctly changed to read: R.F. Jordan & Sons. J. Holt noted the map does not contain an access road to the pit. Indeed there is no formally recognized access to the pit. J. Holt is concerned the Town might be denied entry to look at the pit without formal consent of the owner over whose land the “right-of-way” passes. Attorney Peter Roy stated the Town has statutory rights to enter any Town land with cause. The Public Hearing closed at 7:03
NOVEMBER PUBLIC MEETING
The November meeting was called to order by Chairman G. Donaldson at 7:03 pm.
Consideration of Gravel Pit Permit, RF Jordan & Son. Map 4, Lot 8. Board consideration of the review criteria found all items to be acceptable. Two conditions were attached to permit approval.
J. Holt moved and J. Gallagher seconded a motion to approve the permit with these two conditions. The vote was unanimous.
Wayne Wright Subdivision. The Board received a decision from the Appeals Board regarding the Wayne Wright subdivision. The decision will be considered at the December 2, 2008 meeting of the Planning Board.
The Board agreed to add consideration of an Aquifer Protection ordinance and a Cluster Housing ordinance to the list of future ordinance consideration. M. Havey stated now, with the building malaise taking pressure from the Planning Board's load, is a good time to consider these proposals. The Board set an Ordinance development workshop for 6:30pm on Tuesday, January 13, 2009
J. Holt inquired about the procedures employed when a gravel pit expires. S. Marckoon responded by saying a letter is sent indicating no further extraction can occur until a permit is obtained. Fines and other sanctions could result from further extractions without a permit.
The meeting adjourned at 8:13pm
