Bob Johnson, Cory Johnston and Bruce Luksza all presented the Board with a rough plan of what Mr. Luksza’s property would look like with the units they feel would fit and be appropriate for the site, they would like to build 28 building on the lot 1200 square foot units with garage.

Many questions were brought up about the wetlands, water and shared septic on such a small parcel of land. Apparently Mr. Luksza requested a wetland abatement of about 1-acre; this should be taken into consideration.

Chairman Scott stated based on current zoning the amount of land will not hold the amount of units he is asking for. Page 7 of the Zoning under Permitted uses and special exceptions, t. multi-family use. clearly states the amount of area needed for each unit.

Mr. Johnson requested that the board deny the proposal so they can go to the Board of Adjustment to get the appeal process going. The Board will deny the proposal as soon as a formal application has been received in the office and the secretary will send the letter at that time.
