Due to some technical difficulties the minutes for the June 14th meeting were not available.   They will be available for the August Planning Board Meeting. 


III.                    TREASURERS REPORT


Mr. Bennett stated that the total expenses through June 2011 were $166.63 for Wages and $0.00 for General Expenses. 



IV.              CEO REPORT


Mr. Ray reported that there were a total of 5 permits issued since the last Planning Board meeting.  These permits were for 2 home, 2 pools and 1 fill. 








Ernest Deluca, Recreation/Real Estate Enterprise Manager, represented this plan.   Mr Deluca gave a quick rundown of what had happened since the prior meeting.   There was a discussion about how the times of usage should be stated and reasons for and against having BBQ pits on site.   Specifics about any grading being done and number of parking spaces and handicapped spaces were also discussed.   The next step is to check the application for completeness.   Mr McLean made a motion to table the application review until more of what was discussed at the site visit could be completed.   Mr Bennett  seconded the motion.    Then Mr Bennett stated that the times of open should be stated from down to dusk and that there should be no BBQ pits.   The vote was 0 for and 5 against tabling the review for completeness.


Mr Jolicoeur read the Submission Requirements and the following are to be provided; numbers 13, 37, 40, 42, 50 and 55.   Number 22, Location of open drainage courses, was changed to Androscoggin River.   Numbers 24, 25 and 27 need letters to be submitted.


Mr McLean then made the motion to except the application as complete with the above changes.   Mr Bennett seconded the motion.   The vote to except the application complete with the above changes was unanimous.






Mr Doug Ellison, owner, was present representing this application.   Mr Ellison stated that all he wanted to do was to eliminate the property lines between lots 2 and 3 to create 1 lot.    He had a buyer who was interested in purchasing both lots and wants to combined them and reduce the number of lots in the development.   This also changes the requirement of paving the road.   After a discussion about road conditions, phosphorous count, number of lots and building envelopes the board concluded that the phosphorous calculation had to be revisited.   The values used for the phosphorous calculation have changed since this development was approved.   The determination is that the phosphorous calculation had to be done using the old values for the existing lots and the new values used for the new lot.   The plan drawing needs to be redone with the property line gone.






VII.                              CORRESPONDENCE




Seeing no other discussion, Mr. McLean made a motion for adjournment.  Ms. Laliberte seconded the motion.  The Board Members voted unanimously to adjourn the meeting at 10:32pm.



Respectfully submitted by,



Peter Jolicoeur
