Others Present: Doug Boyce – Hannaford, Robert Libby of BH2M.

Chairman Keith Emery called the meeting to order at 7:30 p.m.

Discussion of site walk for Josh Jewett & Jennifer Granillo who are proposing to amend Butternut Hill Estates by creating a buildable lot in the residual land; Tax Map 3, Lot 45.  The applicant is not in attendance and is waiting for information.  The project will be suspended until the next meeting.

Dave King has submitted a proposal to amend Duck Pond Plaza Subdivision by relocating the lot lines.  Located on Pierce Drive; Tax Map 6, Lots 32-2 & 3.
Robert Libby of BH2M represented Mr. King by introducing the proposal to relocate the property lines to create two conforming lots that could be sold separately.  Mr. King currently owns both parcels.  The ordinance allows for off site parking, so a parking access and utility easement would be created for the Temm buildings parking area.  There is one well that services both lots, a new well will be installed if the project is approved.   The septic system for lot 2 will be located on lot 3 as indicated on the plan, with the leachfield for the Donut Hole under their parking lot.
