DISCUSSION:                     Mark McNichol/Crossroads II Corp.
                                        Car Wash
                                        Map 4, Lot 167, Horse Corner and Dover Roads

Mr. McNichol presented the Board with a plan with the proposed car wash taped to it and explained to the Board how the car wash worked, it will be a holding tank system where the water is recycled and when is reaches a certain state it is removed and taken to a waste treatment plant, there will be a dryer inside and a heat pad just out side for safety in the winter.

Car wash is a permitted use, a Design Review will be set for July 9, 1998.

A Board member is concerned that the new sign is moving and flashing and with the site review that was done in the 1980’s they should be following those regulations which state “no moving or flashing signs”.  Other members of the Board felt this was not in the hands of the Planning Board anymore and the Selectmen have already addressed the issue.

DISCUSSION:                             Debbie Fox/Debbie Kenneally, owner Loyd Kendall
                                                Site Review
                                                Map 3, Lot 15, Dover Road

Ms. Fox and Ms. Kenneally would like to start a business of massage, reflexology and reaki healing in one of the buildings on the lot.

The business on this lot was flower sales and has been dormant for more than one year.

Zoning states new business needs to go through a site review,  therefore items such as paving and a reproducible mylar will be required.

Ms. Fox was under the impression the property was grandfathered as a business, but had not been running for the past year.

Ms. Fox will contact the Secretary if she will continue.


DISCUSSION:                             Mike Anderson
                                                Site Review
                                                Retail Building
                                                Map 4, Lot 160, Dover Road

Mr. Anderson is proposing a four phase building complex, as he builds he will be relocating to a different residence and the site will be strictly small businesses.

Mr. Anderson presented the Board with the proposed buildings with parking and other requirements.  The Board requested he have handicapped emblems placed on the plan for the designated parking areas.

Design Review set for July 9, 1998.

DISCUSSION:                     Paul Adams
                                        “Maptalk” and Commercial development

Mr. Adams will be doing a questionnaire about commercial development in the area he has voluntereed to do this project and the selectmen have approved it.

Mr. Adams will also be developing a map with all residences and commercial properties in Chichester and the soil types in which they are located.

DISCUSSION:                     Board of Adjustment

Chairman Scott will send a copy of the letter sent to the Conways last month along with a letter Chairman Scott will write with the Boards backing to the Board of Adjustment.
