MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE VIENNA
PLANNING BOARD HELD OCTOBER 24, 2018

On October 20 Regular members Waine Whittier, Alan Williams, Ed Lawless, and Creston Gaither met with Bob Bassett and Bill and Darlene Zweigbaum on a site on Kimball Pond depicted on tax map 3 as lot 45-K, which the Zweigbaums expect to acquire, to discuss their proposal to place a gravel pad there to support a recreational vehicle.

On October 24 the Board’s regular meeting convened at the Town House at 7:00 PM; regular members present were those listed above along with Tim Bickford; Bob Bassett was also present. Minutes of the Sept. 26 meeting were read and accepted.

The Zweigbaum’s proposal was considered. Bob Bassett is acting as the Zweigbaums’ local agent; they have forwarded written authorization for this. The Board had issued a permit for a similar proposal for this parcel to Bruce Buzzell on November 7, 2010. It was briefly reviewed. It was agreed that condition number one from that permit, regarding mulch and erosion control, should be imposed on the Zweigbaums’ permit if it is issued.

Based on Mr. Zweigbaum’s sketch and the Board’s site visit, and a subsequent examination of the pertinent flood hazard map, the Board determined that the project as outlined above:

  1. Will maintain safe and healthful conditions;
  2. Will not result in water pollution, erosion, or sedimentation to surface waters;
  3. Will adequately provide for the disposal of all wastewater;
  4. Will not have an adverse impact on spawning grounds, fish, aquatic life, bird or other wildlife habitat;
  5. Will conserve shore cover and visual, as well as actual, points of access to inland waters;
  6. Will protect archaeological and historic resources as designated in the comprehensive plan;
  7. Will avoid problems associated with floodplain development and use; and
  8. Is in conformance with the provisions of Section 15, Land Use Standards.

It was voted 4 – 0 to authorize Creston to issue the usual permit by letter for this proposal.

Alan applied as agent for David Gifford to install 2 temporary pads to allow CMP to excavate for underground power lines on Mr. Gifford’s Flying Pond property depicted on tax map 10 as the southeasterly portion of lot 35. Alan has already installed silt fencing across the entire lot. He says all bare ground has been mulched with erosion control mulch. Alan recused himself from the Board’s deliberations in this matter. The usual site visit was waived as the Board is familiar with the site.

Based on Alan’s sketch and verbal representations,, the Board determined that the project as outlined above:

  1. Will maintain safe and healthful conditions;
  2. Will not result in water pollution, erosion, or sedimentation to surface waters;
  3. Will adequately provide for the disposal of all wastewater;
  4. Will not have an adverse impact on spawning grounds, fish, aquatic life, bird or other wildlife habitat;
  5. Will conserve shore cover and visual, as well as actual, points of access to inland waters;
  6. Will protect archaeological and historic resources as designated in the comprehensive plan;
  7. Will avoid problems associated with floodplain development and use; and
  8. Is in conformance with the provisions of Section 15, Land Use Standards.

It was voted 4 – 0 to authorize Creston to issue the usual permit by letter for this proposal.

Tim is willing to do the assignments of street numbers as discussed at the September meeting. This will be his undertaking and not the Board’s.

Recent permits were reviewed and processed.

Creston will contact CEO Gary Fuller about the work evidently underway on the Flying Pond parcel formerly owned by the Picards and shown on tax map 11 as lot 2-H.

The Meeting adjourned at 7:55 PM.

Creston Gaither, secretary
