Corey Fitz- Continuation of Site Plan Review 376 Dover Rd., Over the Top Shelters-
The plan reviewed the items that needed to be changed. First being the handicap space which was relocated.  Secondly, there was a second driveway permit issued by the road agent.  

The final item was the plan name was in Corey Fitz’s name, however he had not closed on the home yet.  To resolve this issue, the plan name was changed from Mr. Fitz’s name to the Estate of Shirley Waters which will transfer with the sale of the home.   Mr. Fitz closes on the home the following day so he has the option to change it back to his name before the final Mylar is signed.
