ABUTTERS PRESENT:  Bob & Kathy Gagne, Mary Upton and Steven Martin.

George Keller surveyor, Meridian Land Surveying, presented the plans for Mr. Dobbins.

Mr. Adams is concerned that this is listed with the state as a class VI road and feels this could be a problem.  Again it was pointed out that at town meeting money was allocated to improve Ferrin Road.

Motion was made to accept the plans as presented.

                        Brehm/McIntosh                  (Passed)

Public Hearing is set for October 1, 1998

DESIGN REVIEW:                                  Mark Drew
                                                        Subdivision
                                                        Map 1, Lot 4, Shortfalls Road & Lovers Lane

ABUTTERS:  Steve Grafton, Susan & Ed Coffey, Joseph Wherle, Dick & Gail Phelps, Jeff Andrews, Mark & Pamela Thomas.

Mr. Drew nor his surveyor could not be at the meeting tonight.  The subdivisions regulations clearly state the Board before taking formal action shall hold discussion with the subdivider or his agent.

Abutters had many questions that the Board was unable to answer.

The Board needs to have soil types designated on the plan, abutters  Map 1, Lots 8, 10, 17, 17A and 489A are missing from the plan.  Setbacks are missing, water courses, brooks, ponds need to be on plan.

This is Map 1, Lot 4 not Map 4, Lot 1.  Notes #2 “identified” is  misspelled. Names on plan prepared for “Mark Drew & Gloric O’Connor” is Gloric spelled correctly.  Abutters are concerned that the boundary lines are incorrect as to where certain abutters are placed on the plan.

A letter will be sent about the plan to Mr. Drew with the missing information and the corrections.

The Design Review will be continued to October 1, 1998.
