This Affidavit has been notarized by Maureen Scanlon and will be included in the Planning Board file for this proposed project. A copy of it will also be attached to the original set of these minutes and included in the Planning Board’s Meeting Minutes file.
Daniel Braverman presented pictures of the improvements that have been made to the property that were previously requested by the Planning Board. A copy of the collage page of pictures submitted will be included in the Planning Board file for this proposed project. Dan proceeded to answer questions from the Board regarding the improvements that he has implemented. It was noted that an acceptable business plan was submitted by Mr. Braverman as per the Board’s request. He also submitted a “Property Management Agreement”. Copies of the “Beeches Business Plan” and the “Property Management Agreement” will be included in the Planning Board file for this proposed project.
It was noted that this proposal is for the addition of two cabins. Brandon Woolley stated that Mr. Braverman has sewage disposal capacity for the addition of two more cabins. Brandon also mentioned that there are still some plumbing issues that will be addressed, but that Mr. Braverman has made a good faith effort to satisfy all of the issues that were previously addressed by the Board. The Board proceeded to review the Site Plan Review criteria to assure compliance with the ordinance.
The question was raised as to whether the status of this business would be reviewed again on a yearly basis. Paul White mentioned that this is not something that is usually done by the Planning Board and that it is more of a Town Office function. Maureen Scanlon reported that this has been discussed as something that may be done in the future as Business Filings and/or Victualers Licenses through the Town Office.
Maureen Scanlon confirmed that all fees have been paid to date.
Jim Jansz made a motion to approve the Beeches project as presented. It was seconded by Donna Cook. Motion carried with all in favor.
