Mr. Mullaney presented plans to the Board. This project consists of 2 lots zoned commercially in Pembroke and 1 lot of backland in Chichester.

Mr. Mullaney proposes to combine all three lots then divide the one lot into two with frontage in Pembroke. There is an easement through a lot in Chichester to the backland parcel; the Board would like a copy of the easement.

Abutters concerns were increased traffic onto Connemara Drive through the easement. If a commercial endeavor was to happen could they use the easement as another access to the property? Chairman Scott explained that state regulations state the driveway access must be within the frontage of the property.

Some of the concerns of the Board included use of the easement as a driveway, 911 access, and school responsibility.

The Board was in agreement to have Pembroke work on some of these issues also and maybe the two towns should hold a joint hearing. Design Review was closed.
