                                                Map 4, Lot 167, Horse Corner and Dover Roads

ABUTTERS PRESENT:  Gil & Lis Lazich, Jim & Liz Botelho and Tracy Shaw

Mr. McNichol presented the Board with the plan on the addition of the car wash which will be 50’ x 26’.  The dry well will be filled in.

The issue of the sign was brought to Mr. McNichols attention that he would be receiving a letter stating he was in violation of his site review because the sign he erected is flashing and moving.  This violation will not effect this new site review.

An abutter was concerned that she would lose what little water she has in her wells and would like to know what could be done about this.  Neither Mr. McNichol nor the Board could guarantee that there would not be a water shortage, but assured the abutter that Mr. McNichol’s well is in approved site on the property and 500 feet down he probably won’t interfere with other wells located nearby.

Motion was made to accept the design review.
