Evelyn Pike – Tax Deeding – This will be a non-public issue
Mike Albert – Mike’s Auto
Mr. Albert asked for the stop work order to be lifted so the contractor can finish moving the soil and leveling out the land on the property located on Dover Road.
The Board advised Mr. Albert that he needed to go before the Planning Board with his plan due to the wetland setbacks and lot line setbacks.
Heritage Commission – Map 2 Lot 72A
Ms. Noel stated that the Estate of Shirley Waters still had one remaining parcel left in the estate. She had spoken with the executor who asked if there would be interest in obtaining the lot as a donation to use as a bird sanctuary. The Conservation Commission walked the property and did not come to an agreement as to whether or not the land would be an asset to the Town.
Mr. Millette stated that he was not sure if this property would be in the benefit of the Town or its citizens so he wasn’t sure he would be able to support the donation.
The Board wanted to take time to think on this matter and Mr. Mann stated that a Conservation Commission would take a vote at their next meeting on April 12, 2018.
