Request from Harold MacQuinn, Inc for the Board to discuss what permits may be required if MacQuinn seeks to create a new access road to the Kittridge Pit, Map 3 / Lots 31 & 33. Discussion focused on whether a site plan review would be required as more than 10,000 sq. ft. of soil would be removed to build the road. There was no discussion of the merits of the proposal, only if the project would trigger the need for a permit application. Concensus was that a site plan review would be required.
Shoreland Zoning Ordinance - Board received notice of state approval of amended ordinance. Next step to contact Gordan Longsworth of College of the Atlantic to add a text box to the map detailing date passed and appropriate signatures.
