Chairman Ryan called the meeting to order at 6:30 PM.

Review & approve minutes from July 21, 2015 Bruce Ralston made a motion to approve the minutes as written. Jim Daly second the motion. The motion passed 6-0.

Karen Tunney-Spaulding, Owner / Gardner Kellogg, Agent – PB15-04 – Request for a lot line adjustment at 295 Manns Hill Rd, tax maps 60-3 & 60-4, in the R-I and Rural zones. Chairman Ryan accepted the case as complete.

Gardner Kellogg presented the lot line adjustment. TM 60-4 will become 3 acres and TM 60-3 will become 38.94 acres. The required setbacks will be met on TM 60-4. The plan shows a 75-foot R.O.W. to the west of TM 60-4. This will be the access for TM 60-3. The Board discussed the need for a R.O.W. maintenance agreement. Karen Tunney-Spaulding said she is planning on selling the back lot. Vice Chair MacNeil suggested removing the 75-foot R.O.W. and adding a 75-foot strip of land to the east of TM 60-4. This change will allow TM 60-4 to stay the proposed 3 acres. The access for TM 60-3 is to the west of TM 60-4 because the east side of TM 60-4 has too much ledge. The applicant agreed to the suggestion.

Val Poulsen made a motion to approve Karen Tunney-Spaulding, Owner / Gardner Kellogg, Agent – PB15-04 – Request for a lot line adjustment at 295 Manns Hill Rd, tax maps 60-3 & 60-4, in the R-I and Rural zones with the condition that the 75-foot R.O.W. is relocated as discussed. Tony J. Ilacqua second the motion. The motion passed 6-0. The updated plan will be brought to the August 18, 2015 Planning Board meeting.
