Mr. Drew explained that he has no wetlands on his property but there are wet areas down the side of the road in the ditching and possibly on a neighboring property.

DISCUSSION:                     Charlene Bennett/Fred Moses Property
                                        Map 2, Lot 8, Horse Corner Road

Ms. Bennett came to the Board tonight to see if a subdivision could be placed on this property. The parcel only has 50 feet of frontage so the only way to do a subdivision would be to build a road. The Board was in agreement that the existing house needs the same frontage as any of the other lots. The only way to have more than one house on this lot is to subdivide put in a road and create road frontage.

Question will be made to New Hampshire Municipal Association as to whether or not the Town can hold a ballot vote on Zoning at the Primary or National Election.

Motion was made to adjourn.

                Stamowlaros/Lawrence                    (Passed)
