Mr. Noyes presented drawings for this subdivision, according to the current zoning the soil types for this piece of property are rural agricultural and would need 5 acres with 300 feet of frontage. The lot is just about 9.6 acres and they would need 4 tenths of an acre to have two buildable lots for subdivision. It was commented that there is a parcel of land that abuts this project that also belongs to the McAnney’s but they are not interested in adding to this existing lot.
