Planning Board - Minutes: April 24, 2013

MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE VIENNA PLANNING BOARD HELD APRIL 24, 2013

The meeting convened at 7:00 PM at the Town House; regular members present were Waine Whittier, Alan Williams, Ed Lawless, Nanou Laliberte and Creston Gaither. Minutes of the March 27 meeting were read and accepted. Waine has not received any new information regarding the cell tower permit application discussed on Nov. 28.

Richard Stake appeared with Susan Weeks, his daughter, regarding the former Glen Fitch property, depicted on tax map 3 as lot 71 and now owned in part by Leona Carpentier. Mr. Stake noted the questions raised by Mrs. Carpentier at the Board’s October 24 meeting concerning Mr. Stake’s intent to drill a well on his parcel, which abuts Mrs. Carpentier’s parcel.Waine advised him that he has spoken to Mrs. Carpentier on the phone a couple of times. Mr. Stake said that Mrs. Carpentier claims she owns the road. He says he has deeded easement rights to use it. Ms. Weeks says Goodwin Well Drilling has visited the site and suggested some grading and tree removal etc. in order to get a well in and told her that the outhouse on the Carpentier parcel could affect the permissibility of the well and that the State must approve the well. Mr. Stake says that in November the State approved the well as a “specialty well.” It is about 100 feet from the pond. Waine noted that excavation for the water line will most likely require a Shoreland Zoning Ordinance (SZO) permit from the Planning Board and that silt produced by drilling may require a silt fence and a related SZO permit.

The SZO was briefly reviewed; on page 9 it indicates that removal of less than 10 cy of material in the LR zone does not require a Planning Board permit but is allowed. Ms. Weeks assured the Board that a silt fence will be installed by the well driller.

Tim Seamons appeared – he owns Town Line Auto on Town House Road where he buys and sells automobiles. The State has advised him that he needs a “Recycler License Zoning Renewal” form signed; Waine signed it and Town Clerk Annie Tibbetts came to the meeting and notarized his signature.

Alan presented an application to build a porch on the Landis property on Ithiel Gordon Road (map 11 lot 30 – P). The Board is familiar with the site, which it has visited in the past and therefore waived the usual site visit. The Board made findings of fact as per Section 16.D. of the SZO, found this proposal conforming, and voted to authorize Creston to issue a SZO permit for this work.

Alan also presented an application regarding the I’Anson property on Klir Beck Rd.(map 11 lot 48 – F). Mr. I’Anson has not raised the roof on the garage as previously proposed. He now wants to build a 12’ x 22’ addition on the end of the garage.It is not clear what type of floor will be used, so erosion control measures will most likely be required. The Board is familiar with the site, which it has visited in the past and therefore waived the usual site visit. The Board made findings of fact as per Section 16.D. of the SZO, found this proposal conforming, and voted to authorize Creston to issue a SZO permit for this work.

Waine presented a proposal to expand by 280 sf the deck on the structure on his Parker Pond parcel, (tax map 11 lot 23-PHe recused himself and Alan was elected Acting Chairman for this deliberation.Holes for the posts will be hand-dug. The Board is familiar with the site, which it has visited in the past and therefore waived the usual site visit. The Board made findings of fact as per Section 16.D. of the Shoreland Zoning Ordinance (SZO), found this proposal conforming, and voted to authorize Creston to issue a SZO permit for this work.

CEO John Archard’s e-mail of 4/23/13 concerning 13 Herrin Woods Rd. was briefly discussed. It was agreed that as there is no application before the Board concerning this site, no formal action was necessary and none was taken.

The Harrises’ request that their 2010 SZO permit regarding their Stream Road parcel, (map 5-A, lot 32-4), be renewed; as no changes are proposed and the Board visited the site in 2010, the usual site visit was waived, and the Board voted to authorize Creston to issue a SZO permit for this work.

The meeting adjourned at 8:00 PM.
