A Public Hearing Rosen-Feher  was opened by James Deming at 7:00 on an application for an extention to a pre-existing non-conforming house on a non-conforming lot.  The property is owned by Stanley Rosen and Karen Feher, at 339 Beetle Road, Map 116, lot 1.

The existing house is 19.5 feet from the Western sideline.  The requested addition will bring the footprint to 14.5 feet from the Western sideline.  

The owners of the two abutting properties were present, but voiced no opposition to the project. No one in the audience spoke about the project.

Public Hearing was closed at 7:20.

Old Business:

Minutes of meeting of  7/16/2007 were approved.

Verizon Wireless: Ellen Freyman, representing Verizon Wireless, submitted application for Special Permit for temporary changes to existing wireless tower on property owned by Crown Atlantic Company, LLC, Map 403, Lot 31, off East Otis Road.

The Special Permit covers the temporary removal of one antenna panel and the substitution of a different antenna, as well as the reversal of this installation when the new antenna is no longer required.  The new antenna is required to allow a neighboring Verizon Wireless antenna installation to be operative while necessary utilities are being installed at that site.

A Public Hearing on the Special Permit has been scheduled for November 19, 2007, at 7:00 p.m.

Rosen and Feher: A discussion was held on the Public Hearing for a Special Permit to extend the pre-existing non-conforming house owned by Stanley Rosen and Karen Feher, at 339 Beetle Road, Map 116, Lot 1.

Questions were raised as to whether a Variance should have been required.

The Planning Board had scheduled and held a Public Hearing for a Special Permit and since no objections were raised by neighbors, the Planning Board approved the Special Permit for an extention of the non-conforming house and deck.

New Business:

Camp Kinderland: Denis Cormier, representing Camp Kinderland, 1543 Colebrook River Road, Map 401, Lot 3, discussed briefly Camp Kinderland’s tentative plans for replacing the tempory trailer for which they had received Planning Board approval to use for one year.  As plans are not final, no action was taken.

Strobell: Nick Urbanati, representing Alan and Tammy Strobell, owners of 69 East Otter Drive, Map 118, Lot 21,  requested Site Plan Approval for enlargement of an existing deck by 160 feet.  As all setbacks will be meet, approval was granted.

Henderson: Joanne Henderson applied for Site Plan Approval for the construction of a 48’x20’ greenhouse on her property on the North side of Route 57, Map 409, Lot 5.1.

Request from Town Clerk: The Town Clerk has requested that we re-design our “Approval Not Requird” (ANR) form.  

Meeting adjourned at 8:19 pm.   

Respectfully submitted,

Gertrude T. McKay
