TOWN OF SEBAGO, SITE PLAN REVIEW OF THE SAND/SALT SHED
(MAP 2 – LOT 3)

Mr. Nicholson reviewed, in detail, the plans for the proposed Sand/Salt Shed project.  He explained that this is being done in an effort to protect all drinking wells in the area of the sand pile from any leaching of salt from the pile.  He further explained that the design of this building meets all DEP and DOT requirements which will allow for approximately $91,000 in reimbursement to be given back to the town from the DEP.  He answered all questions presented by the members of the public regarding this project.  Some discussion ensued regarding the potential for use of liquid calcium chloride and how a container could be housed at this site by attaching a projecting section to the existing building.  It would not be stored inside of this building.

REVIEW OF MINUTES:

Rick Viles made a motion to accept the minutes from April 10, 2007 as presented.  Seconded by Paul White.  Motion carried with all in favor.

NEW BUSINESS:

CAMP MICAH, SITE PLAN REVIEW
(MAP 17 – LOT 12 & 13)

Mr. Dubois was advised that the fee for a site plan review is $35.00 and the Board is requesting that the town be reimbursed the cost of sending out certified “public hearing” notification letters to the abutters of this property.  Mrs. Scanlon stated that there were only twelve letters sent out.  She will check the records and contact Mr. Dubois with the total amount due for the mailing.  

Once again there was some discussion on the condition of the Sebago owned section of Moose Cove Lodge Road.  After careful review, the Board does not feel as though this project will dramatically impact the condition of the road.

The Site Plan Review criteria requirements/standards were reviewed for compliance.
Steve Bourgess made a motion to approve this project as presented.  Seconded by Rick Viles.  Motion carried with all in favor.

TOWN OF SEBAGO, SITE PLAN REVIEW OF THE SAND/SALT SHED
(MAP 2 – LOT 3)

Mr. Jim Smith submitted two letters he received from Mr. Erich D. Kluck, Division of Water Quality Management at the DEP, and Mr. Ronald J. Faucher, Source Protection Coordinator for the Portland Water District, approving the site for construction of a Sand/Salt Shed.

The Site Plan Review criteria requirements/standards were reviewed for compliance.
Rick Viles made a motion to approve this project as presented.  Seconded by Steve Bourgess.  Motion carried with all in favor.

30% EXPANSION – MR. BETHONEY
(MAP 33 – LOT 31)

Mr. Smith introduced Matt Dyer, the contractor representing Mr. Bethoney, to the Board.  Jim submitted pictures from Mr. Bethoney and explained the proposed design of his requested 30% expansion project.  Discussion ensued regarding this project with Jim and Mr. Dyer answering all of the Board’s questions.  There will be a $35.00 site plan fee required, and a site walk is not required by the Board since the expansion is vertical and will not encroach on any set backs and the Board is familiar with the site and area.

A motion was made by Rick Viles to approve this project with the CEO overseeing the process.  Steve Bourgess seconded.  Motion carried with all in favor.     

30% EXPANSION – MR. NELSON
(MAP 33 – LOT 27)

Mr. Smith introduced Mike Kenison, the contractor representing Mr. Nelson, to the Board.  Jim reviewed pictures that he took at the site and explained the proposed design of the requested 30% expansion project.  Discussion ensued regarding this project with Jim and Mr. Kenison answering all of the Board’s questions.  There will be a $35.00 site plan fee required, and a site walk is not required by the Board since the expansion is vertical and will not encroach on any set backs and the Board is familiar with the site and area.    

A motion was made by Steve Bourgess to approve this project with the CEO overseeing the process and no site walk required.  Rick Viles seconded.  Motion carried with all in favor.

MISCELLANEOUS BUSINESS

A question was raised regarding a private dock being constructed in a deeded right of way.  After some discussion, it was recommended that this would be an issue that should be addressed by an attorney and not by the Planning Board.  

30% EXPANSION – MR. & MRS. TYNDALL
(MAP36 – LOT 1)

Mr. Smith explained that this item was inadvertently left off of the formal agenda for this meeting.  He introduced Mr. Clifford Burnell, the contractor representing Mr. & Mrs. Tyndall.  He explained that he met with Mr. Burnell at the site location and reviewed the proposed design of the requested 30% expansion project.  The original request was to add a 16’ x 20’ bedroom/bathroom addition on the back end of the existing building.  After careful review, it was determined that the size of the addition would be limited to 14’ x 20’ due to the location of the existing septic system.  

A motion was made by Steve Bourgess to approve this project as submitted.  Rick Viles seconded.  Rick Bates and Paul White abstained from voting.  Motion failed without a majority vote.

A motion was made by Steve Bourgess to grant a conditional approval for this project providing no issues are found during a site walk to be performed on Sunday, May 13th at 8:00 am.   Rick Viles seconded.  Motion carried with all in favor.      

No further issues were brought up for discussion.

A motion was made by Steve Bourgess to adjourn.  Paul White seconded.  Motion carried with all in favor.   

ADJOURNMENT: 8:50 p.m.
