Members Present:  Chairman Kevin Mara, Ex-Officio Jeffrey Jordan, Richard Arell, Stan Brehm, Allen Mayville, Richard Moore, Alternates Thomas Houle and Alan Williams, and Jamie A Pike, Secretary.

Chairman Mara called the meeting to order at 6:30pm.

Pursuant to RSA 673:11, Chairman Mara appointed Mr. Williams as a voting member for the purposes of this meeting.

The minutes of February 7th were reviewed.  A motion was made by Mr. Mayville and seconded by Mr. Arell to approve the minutes as written.  Motion passes.

Subdivision: Benjamim and Donna Brown, Map 7 Lot 35-1
Mr. Benjamin Brown was present to speak on the merits of the proposal.

The purpose of the proposal is to subdivide a 7.01 acre lot from the primary lot.  The new lot has 529.92 feet of road frontage, is located in the RA district and contains 91% suitable land for development.  The remaining lot contains over 32 acres and over 2,000 feet of road frontage.

Following a thorough review, a motion was made by Dr. Mara and seconded by Mr. Jordan to accept the application as complete.  Motion passes.

Chairman Mara opened the Public Hearing upon the application.
There were no abutters present.

Being no further discussion, a motion was make by Dr. Mara and seconded by Mr. Arell to approve the application with two (2) precedent conditions; (1) change the lot number from M7 L35-1-1 to M7 L35-4, and (2) add a note declaring the approximate acreage and road frontage of the remaining lot. Motion passes.

Hague Berry Farm, Map 3 Lot 17

Mike and Cindy Hague previous presented a concept at the February 7th meeting and legal consult was sought to determine the proper process to move forward, as the Hague’s wish to operate under a Hawkers and Peddlers License.  It was determined that per statute, all H&P licensees are still required to follow all local ordinances.  As the Hagues had previously stated their intent to use the existing buildings on a more permanent basis, the Board first discussed the impact that the operation would have upon the lot.  It was determined that there was a significant impact and such would require Site Review.  There is a current Site Plat previously approved for the lot.  The Board found the previous plat to be sufficient for the operations of the farmstand, if such was built out.  The Hagues will also be given the option of presenting a new Site Plat designed to meet the minimum requirements of the zoning and site review regulations.

Other Business

Mr. Moore provided an update on the Transportation Advisory Committee from CNHRPC.  There are two projects in Chichester to be listed on the 2015 Ten Year Plan, being located at the intersection of King Rd and Rte 4 and the intersection of Rte 28 and Main Street.  The Main Street intersection was submitted as priority number 1 for the region.

Mr. Moore also stated that there is a Board member needed to join the CIP committee.

Mr. Houle asked what the Planning Board saw itself working on for the forthcoming year.  Ordinance development needs to be a priority.

Being no further business, a motion was made by Mr. Brehm and seconded by Mr. Mayville to adjourn the meeting at 7:40pm.  Motion passes.

Respectfully Submitted,

Jamie A Pike
