PUBLIC HEARING: Amendment to the Littleton Subdivision Regulations Section 6B, Approval Period.
This was discussed at last meeting. In order to change it, a public hearing is required. The board discussed changing the amount of time for an applicant to record their approved plan. They agreed to make the change from 2 years to 6 months. Plans will get recorded timely.

Current wording of Section 6B of the Littleton Subdivision Regulations:
The final plat shall be filed in the office of the Grafton County Register of Deeds within two (2) years after final approval by the Planning Board. All conditions for approval and the recording must be completed within this period or said approval shall be considered null and void. If, upon written request of the subdivider, the Board finds conditions beyond the control of subdivider to prevent full compliance within the two (2) year period, the Board may grant an additional period of time for compliance.

Suggested wording:
The final plat shall be filed in the office of the Grafton County Register of Deeds within six (6) months after final approval by the Planning Board. All conditions for approval and the recording must be completed within this period or said approval shall be considered null and void. If, upon written request of the subdivider, the Board finds conditions beyond the control of subdivider to prevent full compliance within the six (6) month period, the Board may grant an additional period of time for compliance.

The Board discussed when “final approval” was. Chairman Ryan stated final approval was when the plan is signed by the Board. Marghie Seymour stated it is after the 30-day appeal period. Val Poulsen asked how an applicant can apply for additional time. Tony J. Ilacqua said they only need to ask to be on the agenda.

Tony J. Ilacqua made a motion to approve the suggested change to the Subdivision Regulations. Marghie Seymour second the motion. The motion passed by all.

Other business:
Marghie Seymour informed the Board about the discussion at the Selectboard meeting the previous night regarding the Old County Road reconfiguration. The Town is currently waiting for the draft easement deed from Patel. Tony J. Ilacqua suggested asking the Selectboard to intervene on behalf of the Planning Board. Marghie stated she would find out the proper steps to be taken if barriers need to be put in place. Joanna Ray will keep in touch with the McDonald’s attorney and the Patel’s.

At 7:15, Marghie Seymour made a motion to adjourn. Val Poulsen second the motion. The motion passed by all.
