Planning Board - Minutes: Apr. 27, 2011

MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE VIENNA PLANNING BOARD HELD APRIL 27, 2011

The meeting convened at 7:00 PM at the Town House. Regular members present were Waine Whittier, Alan Williams, Nanou Laliberte, Ed Lawless, and Creston Gaither. Minutes of the February 23 and March 23 meetings were read and accepted.

The Board reviewed a letter from the State Planning Office dated March 24 stating that the Floodplain Management Ordinance is acceptable as adopted in March. No response has been received  from  Mike Goetz (see March minutes); Creston will write to him again.

Mark Rains (tax map 10 lot 75) applied for a permit for a roofed porch. The Board reviewed his permit sketch, a sketch he presented for a permit in 2001, flood data from the new DFIRM, and related data. Because the Board is familiar with the site, the proposal is minimal, and no significant excavation is proposed, the usual site visit was waived. The Board made findings of fact as per Section 16.D. of the Shoreland Zoning Ordinance, found the proposal conforming, and voted to authorize Creston to issue the usual permit by letter. Creston had already received the $18.00 fee and gave it to Waine.

Creston stated that the south end of Don Ripley's cabin (tax map 10 lot 28) is about 225 feet from the pond (see March minutes).

Alan noted that in or about 2012 any earthwork in the shoreland zone will require certification from the State.

The meeting adjourned at 7:30 PM.

Creston Gaither, secretary
