Planning Board - Minutes: June 24, 2015

MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE VIENNA PLANNING BOARD HELD  JUNE 24, 2015

The meeting convened at the Town House at 7:00 PM. Regular members present were Waine Whittier,  Alan Williams, Ed Lawless, Austin Harrell, and Creston Gaither. Steve Richardson was also present. Minutes of the May 27 and April 22 meetings were read and accepted.

Steve said he is removing the attached barn on his village house lot, Map 10 Lot 95. He would like to build a 27' x 35' garage in its footprint. It appears that it is neither in the Shoreland Zone nor in a flood zone, so he was issued a Notification of Construction permit.

Recent permits were briefly reviewed. Creston presented a letter from D.E.P. approving the change to the Shoreland Zoning Ordinance (SZO) adopted at the March Town Meeting.

Waine outlined a new D.E.P. guideline that encourages towns to base expansion of non-conforming structures within the shoreland zone on the structure's footprint and not on square feet of living space as Vienna's SZO currently does. It was agreed that we should present this change to the Town for approval at the next Town Meeting.

Creston advised Austin, who is moving away, to send a letter of resignation to the selectmen.

The meeting adjourned at 7:30 PM.

 Creston Gaither, secretary
