DISCUSSION:     Jay Baas
        Site Review
        Teachers Workshop
        Map 8, Lot 4, Depot Road

Mr. Baas Presented plans to the Board, he understands that he cannot use the old Depot Road as parking and is asking to put in less parking and use the westerly side of the old Depot Road to park cars. The Board did not feel they could make a decision on the parking because the land belongs to the Town and not to Mr. Baas. Site Review Regulation state 8 paved parking spaces are needed for this project.

Sent to the Selectmen.

DISCUSSION:     Doug Hamel
        Subdivision
        Map 2, Lot 41-273, Staniels Road

Mr. Hamel presented plans for a 5-lot subdivision. After discussion of the property, one of the lots he is subdividing off holds home occupation he has and if he subdivides it off the home occupation will be null. Mr. Hamel stated he would not subdivide off the business. One of the parcels is partly in Pembroke.  He will need to meet with Pembroke on their zoning of the property. Mr. Hamel will contact the secretary when ready to continue.

        Lot Line Adjustment
        Map 5, Lots 26 & 26A

DISCUSSION:     Joe Austin

Mr. Austin would like to build 22 units for a 55 and over housing community. Water and septic will be community, the existing house will be turned into a community building, he will have either a cistern or individual sprinkler systems.

They need to go by state statues and they must get approval from the Attorney General’s office.
