REGULAR MEETING:

 

APPLICATIONS:

 

Castimore                                            No. 08-12        Block 375.03, Lot 20 ? 14 Cliff Trail

                                                                                    Minor Subdivision

 

            Mr. Paul Castimore, applicant was present and sworn in.  Stated his intension is to subdivide his property to build a two-story single family home.

 

            Mr. Fernandes stated the only concern is for the access driveway to the proposed dwelling which is currently an unimproved paper street.  The lot itself complies with Highland?s lot disturbance and impervious coverage requirements but the applicant would have to get an exemption from the Highlands.  If the applicant has to add the improvements within the R.O.W. the Highland?s might take that as exceeding their disturbance requirements.  If the municipality was to make the improvements then it would not be calculated in the application to the Highlands.

 

            Councilwoman Merz stated that the applicant can come before the Council and ask for the paper road to be recognized as a street and maintained.

 

            Chairman Williams asked how many feet are we talking about for the paper road.

 

            Mr. Fernandes stated approximately 120 to 150 feet from the existing Pioneer Trail to the proposed driveway.  He recommended the road be 50-feet wide to provide for two way traffic for emergency vehicles.

 

            Councilwoman Merz asked if this could move forward with the condition that would allow for the investigation of whether or not the town would be willing to extend the road and if not the applicant would have to calculate this disturbance in the Highland?s application.

            Chairman Williams opened the meeting to the public.

            There being no comment the public portion is closed.

 

Councilwoman Merz moved to approve the application with the condition the road situation is taken care of.  Vice-Chairman Mitchko seconded the motion.
