Planning Board - Minutes: April 25, 2012


At 6:15 PM the Board conducted a site visit at the Ljunggren property in Vienna village (tax map 10 lot 81), where regular members Lionel Laliberte and Waine Whittier and Creston Gaither met with Matt Dunn and his contractor, Bruce Dunn; Matt would like to have a second story bathroom built over the existing bathroom, and to have a dormer built on the higher existing roof; no change is proposed to the existing ell or the easterly end of the structure. No increase to the existing floor area is proposed.

Matt's mailing address is: P.O. Box 148, Mt Vernon, ME 04352.

The regular meeting convened at the Town House at 7:00 PM. Other regular members present were Alan Williams and Ed Lawless.

Minutes of the March 28 meeting were read and accepted.

Jim and Kathy Meader appeared to discuss the existing camp on their Flying Pond parcel (tax map 10 lot 104 - F). The existing camp is within 12 or 17 feet of the pond. The Shoreland Zoning Ordinance (SZO) rules for the expansion of non-conforming structures (Sect. 12.C,(1). were reviewed. Jim presented a sketch of the existing structure It appears that if the existing sheds were removed about 500+ sf could be added to the existing structure. It was agreed that a site visit would be required for the Board to determine with certainty what will be permissible. Thus no formal action was taken.

Creston will check on the structure's flood hazard zone status. Jim says he has a plumbing permit for the existing septic system.

Matt Dunn's proposal was discussed. As the structure lies within the Shoreland Zone, the Board made findings of fact as per Section 16.D. of the SZO, found this proposal conforming, and voted to authorize the issuance of a SZO permit for the proposed work upon receipt of a valid plumbing permit.

Creston noted that he expects to miss the Board's May 23 meeting.

The meeting adjourned at 7:45 PM

Creston Gaither, Secretary
