Abutters Present: Shirley Waters and Bruce Merrill

Mr. Austin presented plans to the Board and explained that he was moving one unit from the existing house and creating a new house. There will not be an increase in the number of units just the number of buildings.  The Board requested last month that the Town Engineer review the change and report back to the Board. The letter from Bill Rollins at Vollmer reports that the common area is sufficient to meet the zoning regulations.

Mr. Austin was also asked to produce documentation for the Board stating he is the Corporations spokesperson. Mr. Austin gave the Board a letter from Bruce Gatchel stating that Mr. Austin was the spokesman of the corporation.

There are outstanding issues with State of New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, which is a concern. Mr. Austin produced a letter granting him an extension to remedy the issues by May 13, 2005 and Mr. Austin feels that will be sufficient time.

Mr. Austin also discussed the issue of building the model. The Board was in agreement that it was discussed in March that he could build the model with the conditions stated being met.

Being no further discussion and the Board being in agreement that the plans are conforming to the current zoning a motion was made to accept the additional building unit.

Mr. Hartley came to the Board for some guidance on his new sign. He understands the size and lighting portion of the zoning and will remain in compliance with the current zoning. He would like to know however how close to Route 28 he could put the sign. He was referred to State of New Hampshire, Department of Transportation, District 5.

No public hearings are needed for the new sign.

DISCUSSION:     David Hartley
        Site Review – Internal Building Storage Units
        Blueberry Hill Plaza
        Map 9, Lot 91A, Suncook Valley Road

Mr. Hartley would like to have 8 to 10 internal storage units in his building. The space is already used for storage Mr. Hartley would just like to create actual units for rent. The Board was in agreement that is a multi use building and as long as he meets fire and building codes he would not need a site review for the existing use.

Mr. Hartley was requested to meet with the Fire Chief and the Building Inspector and provide the Planning Board with a sketch of the units.

DISCUSSION:     Robert & Kathleen Gagne
        Map 7, Lot 12, Ferrin Road

Surveyor David Noyes presented plans to the Board for a lot line adjustment as originally submitted last year which attached the larger parcel of land to the sons property. The Board of Adjustment has granted a Variance to Section P – Wetlands for this lot.

Chairman Scott is still concerned about the wetlands but feels there is nothing the Board can do at this point in time because the Variance has been granted and has removed all issues of wetlands for this property.

Mr. Noyes now presents the Board with another plan for subdivision because they will be creating a new lot. The large parcel will only be accessible through a right-of –way therefore creating a backlands lot.

Design Review/Public Hearing set for June.
