- NeuroRestorative Project Update
Brandon Woolley reported that NeuroRestorative has submitted copies of their State license to operate a Level III PNMI Residential Care Facility at 988 Sebago Road and of their waste disposal agreement. This documentation has been included in both the Planning Board and Code Enforcement files for this project. He mentioned that they indicated that they may be back before this Board again for another expansion project. This would be another dwelling approximately the same size as the building that they just came before the Board for; in addition to another separate dwelling that would be a “day use” facility.

VI New Business
- Site Plan Review – Camp Micah (New Cabin) – Map 17, Lots 12 & 13
Esther Bizier and Tom Dubois from Main-Land Development Consultants, Inc. presented the proposed design plan for a new cabin that Camp Micah is requesting to build. They answered questions from the Board regarding the specifics of this project. This building will house twelve campers and two counselors. It will be located between two other existing cabins and is in an area that is not visible from outside of Camp Micah’s campground. Brandon Woolley stated that he has reviewed the submitted application and he considers it complete. Maureen Scanlon stated that the application fee has been paid. There was some discussion amongst the Board members as to whether a Site Walk or Public Hearing would be required.
Rick Viles made a motion to waive the Site Walk, the Public Hearing and accept the application as complete. It was seconded by Phil Lowe. Motion carried with all in favor.
Jim Jansz asked if the DEP approval has been received yet because it was noted in the application that it was pending at the time of the submittal to this Board. Esther confirmed that it has not been received as of this date. She explained that this is an amendment to Camp Micah’s existing DEP permit and they do not foresee any problem obtaining it. The Board agreed that they do not want to proceed with the approval of this project until the DEP Permit has been received. This project will be added to the agenda for the next Planning Board meeting on January 13, 2015.
Tina Vanasse made a motion to adjourn at 7:23 p.m. It was seconded by Rick Viles. Motion carried with all in favor.
