MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE VIENNA
PLANNING BOARD HELD AUGUST 24, 2022
The meeting convened at 7:00 PM at the Town House. Regular members present were Waine Whittier, Alan Williams, Tim Bickford and Creston Gaither. Also present were Richard Stake and Bob Nurse. Minutes of the July 27 meeting were read and accepted.
Richard Stake expressed concern about jet skis on Kimball Pond. Someone told him there are no rules on this pond. The Board advised him that State statutes regarding Great Ponds apply to Kimball Pond, but that the Planning Board has no enforcement power. He says that an access ramp into the pond has been built without a permit. He was advised that DEP controls access ramps and that the Game Warden probably has some enforcement power in this regard.
Alan said that his wife Donna Williams would like to split lot 1 in Siegler Subdivision, shown on tax Map 7 as lot 4-1, into two lots. There is no note on the subdivision plan requiring Board approval for this.
It was moved that Creston should draft a letter stating that the Board does not believe that Board approval is required for the division because more than 5 years have passed since Lot 1 was created, and the proposed lots will exceed the 2 acre minimum required for the original subdivision. The Board voted 3 – 0 in favor of this, with Alan recusing himself from the vote.
The meeting adjourned at 8:00 PM.
Creston Gaither, secretary
