DISCUSSION:                             Russell Nelson
                                                Route 4 Property
                                                Map 3, Lot 17

Mr. Nelson came to the Board because his property has no septic or water, the state took both when they improved the road, and a neighbor is showing concern.

The Board made clear to Mr. Nelson even though the lot is smaller he still needs to have septic.

Mr. Nelson was also concerned about retail selling was he still allowed to rent the store?

The Board felt Mr. Nelson was grandfathered and the building has been retail for 15 to 20 years.

The septic problem was not a planning issue, but a selectmen/health officer issue.

Mr. Nelson thanked the Board for their help.



PRELIMINARY HEARING:                            Cheryl & Claude Valenze
                                                        Lot Line Adjustment
                                                        Map 1, Lot 2, 2A & 2B
                                                        Hutchingson Road

Mr. Valenze presented the Board with plans on the lot adjustments he intends to make.

The Board suggested that Mr. Valenze work with a registered land surveyor and maybe a soil scientist to help him with the lot line adjustment and soil types.  Each lot needs 90% buildable soil.

Also a concern of the Board is the driveway  on a class 6 road.  After discussion the Board was in agreement the town can not give approval to that driveway and it would need to be moved to  an acceptable road.

Public Hearing will be set up if Mr. Valenze contacts Andrea by September 12,1996.

Motion was made to accept the Preliminary Plan.

                        Brehm/Jordan    (Passed)
