Present:        Steve McAlister

New Business:
1.      Applicant:      Philip & Nancy Grann
Parcel:         Map 110,  Lot 19
Location:       26 South Trail
           Description:        Site Plan application to build a 26’ x 30’ garage on property of the Tunix Club.  The roadway passes thru this parcel, and is 25 feet from the garage.  The garage does meet the front yard setback from the property line, but not the road.   
Action Taken:  Because South Trail passes thru other parcels in the same manner, it was determined that the roadway was a “common driveway” which did not subdivide the parcel.  For this reason , as all setbacks will be meet, application was approved unanimously.

        Parcel:         Map 120, Lot 28
        Location:       10 Owl’s Nest

Action Taken: As all setbacks will be meet, the application was approved unanimously.

7.      Site Plan Approval Document Requirements: Eric Munson, Jr. appeared before the Board to request that a formal document, which declares that a Site Plan has been approved, be attached to all approved Site Plans.  This is in addition to the signatures placed on the Site Plan, itself.  The Board agreed to comply with this request.
