TOWN OF CHICHESTER PLANNING BOARD MINUTES OF MEETING JULY 1, 1999                 PAGE 4

Upton, Design Review continued.

The road will be approximately 600 feet with cul-de-sac allowing 4 lots to be subdivided.  All lots are rural agricultural soils and are at least 5 acres so they do not need septic approval.  The Board recommends green space in the middle of the cul-de-sac but it is up to the developer. The road needs to be paved no matter what the developer decides on the middle of the cul-de-sac.

Water run-off is an issue and the road plan will be given to Bill Rollins at SEA Consultants for review and recommendations.

Abutters were concerned about the frontage, and about the water flow onto Ferrin Road. The impact of the new road on Ferrin Road with traffic. The town engineer to review the impact of this development on Ferrin Road.

Additions to the plan:

Signature block
Paved road
