4.       PB-08-014-SPR: Site Plan Review – Lisa Edenfield – Applicant is proposing modifying the site plan approved by the Wilton Planning Board on 11/28/07, on Tax Map F Lot 098-1, for a Home Daycare Occupation to increase the number of children allowed from nine to twelve children. 

 

Donald Sienkiewicz appeared before the Board for the applicant and explained that the applicant would like to change her home daycare from accepting six non school age children and three school age children to accept 12 children. He explained that she has state approval for up to 15 children but the Fire Chief will only allow her to have 12. He noted that RSA 9.7.3 states that a day care center is required to have one space for each employee and one space for every six children at the center and the applicant is providing four parking spaces; two spaces for employees and two space for drop off and pick up. He noted that the previously approved site plan already had these four spaces so the applicant has just changed the number of children allowed on the site plan. In response to a concern from Spencer Brookes of the Conservation Commission, Donald Sienkiewicz stated that there have not been and will not be any changes to the outside of the building beyond that of a picket fence in the yard. Spencer Brookes noted that the town holds an historic easement on the property. In response to a question from Bill Condra, Donald Sienkiewicz stated that the center is open to the public. In response to a question from Alec MacMartin, Donald Sienkiewicz stated that the hours have not changed and will remain at 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Bill Condra and the Board discussed whether this requires a change of use permit from the Building Inspector.

A MOTION was made by Alec MacMartin and SECONDED by Neil Faiman to accept the application.

Voting: 6 ayes; motion carried.

 

The Board discussed whether they needed to give specific ages in the approval.

 

A MOTION was made by Alec MacMartin and SECONDED by Neil Faiman to increase the approved number of children to 12 children, ages 1-12, subject to the following conditions:

  • No changes to the exterior of the building
  • No signage is allowed
  • Hours are to remain 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Ray Shea, of Sanford Survey, appeared before the Board for the applicant and stated that they have submitted the state subdivision and alteration of terrain permit applications and will be submitting the state septic application shortly. He also noted that new plans were submitted to LaBombard Engineering. He explained that the assessor wanted them to change the lot number to F-095-02 but this is one of the original lot numbers. The Board asked the applicant to change the lot numbers back to F-095-16. Ray Shea also explained that they have specified 1.5” gravel the on the slopes with more then 10% grade. They also added Note #15 with regard to temporary street numbers during construction and Note # 22, which notes that they will not be allowed to pull a fifth occupancy permit until the construction of the fire pond is complete as the Fire Chief will only allow four houses to be built without the new fire pond. Alec MacMartin stated that there should be a note that states that that no certificate of occupancy can be issued until the infrastructure has been approved by the Fire Chief and the Town Engineer.  Ray Shea explained that they amended the hydrant specification to a specific kind, as requested by the Fire Chief, and included that the connections be encased in concrete. The Board and the applicant further discussed bonding issues.

 

Jeff Kandt read a letter from the Milford Planning Board that expressed their preference that the drainage issues on Issac Frye Highway be resolved before additional traffic starts using the road. Janet Langdell, of the Milford Planning Board, appeared before the Board and requested that a formal response letter be sent from the Wilton Planning Board in order to keep the lines of communication open. The Planning Board explained that this is a matter for the Board of Selectman.

 

A MOTION was made by Neil Faiman and SECONDED by Alec MacMartin that the Wilton Planning Board forward the letter from the Milford Planning Board to the Wilton Board of Selectman requesting them to appropriately respond to the Milford Planning Board.

Voting: 6 ayes; motion carried.

 

Ray Shea stated that the Road Agent has raised concerns about the drainage from the subdivision. Ray Shea stated that they are addressing the drainage as best they can with the terrain involved and that Dennis LaBombard feels that the rate of run off is being addressed, if not the volume of run off. The Board stated that they will deal with this issue next month.

 

Donald Sienkiewicz presented an updated letter from Fire Chief Ray Dick which reiterated his concerns that there is no second access and stated that he will not sign off on a project that does not meet state code. Donald Sienkiewicz stated that he feels that the subdivision does not require two access roads. The Board stated that they thought they had solved this issue by requiring a wider collector road.

 

A MOTION was made by Alec MacMartin and SECONDED by Bill Condra to send the Fire Chief’s comments to Town Counsel for review.

Voting: 6 ayes; motion carried.

 

A MOTION to was made by Alec MacMartin and SECONDED by Walter Zuber to amend the previous motion to include a request for Town Counsel to render a legal opinion as to whether the Fire Chief’s ascertain that the fire code applies to this situation, even though the Board has already required that the road be wide enough to pass two fire trucks, is correct and also as to whether the NFPA access regulations apply to subdivisions.

Voting: 6 ayes; motion carried.

Dawn Tuomala appeared before the Board for the applicant and stated that she is close to submitting the state applications and will be resubmitting the plans to the Fire Chief and Road Agent. She also noted that she has to submit the final plans to LaBombard Engineering and is hoping to have conveyances soon so they can be sent to Legal Counsel. She stated that the Board of Selectman has voted to fix the intersection of Dale Street and Route 31 but she noted that members of the Board stated that they did not want the intersection changed.  After discussion, the Board stated that it is the role of the Board of Selectman to determine whether it is appropriate to change the intersection. They also noted that the application does need to include any offsite improvements as part of the plan set.

 

Dawn Tuomala stated that she has added Note 8, which allows for 10 building permits per year to be issued for three years. In response to a question from Bill Condra, Dawn Tuomala stated that the applicant wants to build the entire road system in the beginning so lots can be built in any order. Alec MacMartin noted that bonds will have to be supplied for the completion of the roads and can be released as the roads get built. Steve Wagner noted that the town will want to make sure that the drainage system is working correctly. Alec MacMartin explained that, due to the fact that oil prices are always changing, the Board and applicant need to come up with a mechanism to change the bonding figure closer to the time of construction, perhaps with a preconstruction meeting. He explained that the applicant needs submit a bonding proposal, including the roads, drainage, and fire pond and the Board will have Dennis LaBombard review it. The Board discussed the phasing options and did not object the applicant’s proposed phasing. 

 

Dawn Tuomala stated that she has no objections to Tracey Tar’s lastest suggestions and will put a planting schedule in place. The Board decided that they did not need Tracey Tar to make a presentation to the Board.

She has noted that she has delineated which unit is tied to which septic, each unit has its own septic tanks and shares a buffer tanks and leach field, and that the leach fields are sized for four bedrooms houses even though the units on have three bedrooms.

Chairman Jeff Kandt explained that Town Counsel is questioning whether the town or the Subdivision Association should be responsible for maintenance of such things as the fire pond.

PRESENT:    Wilton Planning Board Members: Chairman Jeff Kandt, Neil Faiman, Selectman Representative Bill Condra, Alternate Walter Zuber,   NRPC Representative Steve Wagner, and Clerk Heather Loewy Nichols.
Lyndeborough Planning Board: Chair Tracey Turner, Mike Decubellis, Bill Ball, Tom Chrisenton, Bob Rogers, Selectman Representative Steve Brown, and Clerk Pauline Ball.
 
Chairman Jeff Kandt called the meeting to order at 7:34 p.m. and appointed Dave Holder and Walter Zuber to the Board as a voting member.
1. Subdivision Application - Provost 1993 Trust –for Lot B-014 Cram Hill Road in the Residential/Agricultural and Wetlands Districts. Applicant is proposing a 14-lot subdivision
 
Jeff Merritt, from Keach Nordstrom, appeared before the Board for the applicant and reviewed the changes that had been made to the plan since the last meeting. He explained that at they have revised the plan by removing the non-conforming back lot from the front of the subdivision and relocated it to the end of the cul-de-sac to allow for the additional acreage needed to conform to the reduced frontage lot regulations. He explained that while the overall density has not changed they would now like to access Lots 14-07, 08 and 09 with a private way and submitted a revised conceptual driveway plan.
Jeff Merritt submitted a proposal for offsite improvements in Lyndeborough and stated that they had reviewed the cost analysis submitted by the Lyndeborough Road Agent and they found a mathematical error. He explained that he has confirmed with the Road Agent that there was an error and then used the new numbers to determine the apportionment for the development. He further explained that they performed a traffic count and found that the fair share apportionment for the subdivision is 21% of the Cram Hill Road improvement costs and 10% of the Wilton Road improvement costs and they are recommending $31, 000 as their contribution. In response to a question from the Lyndeborough Board, Jeff Merritt stated that one “trip” is leaving or coming on the road but not both.
Jeff Merritt stated that he spoke to Steve Wagner and they have gone over the Wilton check list and most of the issues have been resolved, however they are asking for a waiver of item 6.1(n) - Plat Standards, as they are currently using a scale of 1” to 2,000’, in order to show the roadway network, rather then the required 1” to 1000’ scale.
Bob McKenney appeared before the Board and explained that he had met with the wildlife biologist, Tracey Tarr, and has sent her report to Bob Prokup, the applicant’s wildlife biologist. He stated that he expects that Bob Prokup will be submitting a rebuttal. He explained that attorney Tom Quinn has started creating easements and that they will be submitted in advance of the next meeting for review by the Board. 
In response to a comment from the Lyndeborough Board, Bob McKenney explained that the restrictive conveyances will include language about the septic systems not being allowed in Lyndeborough.
Chairman Jeff Kandt asked for a copy of the traffic counts performed by Keach Nordstrom.
Bob McKenney explained that they had been proposing a 10’ wide trail but they will be increasing the width to 15’, rather than the 20’ width that the Conservation Commission has requested. Bob McKenney discussed with the Board and public, that due to liability reasons, they are proposing limitations to foot traffic and equestrian traffic on the trail. After discussion, Bob McKenney stated that as long as the liability, maintenance, and enforcement issues could be resolved the applicant is open to allowing traffic other than snowmobiles on the trail.
Bob McKenney further stated that they are going to try and incorporate some of the Tracey Tarr’s recommendations but some of her recommendations would require a whole new design.
The Lyndeborough Board noted that Route 13 should be Route 31 on the locust map.
A MOTION as made by Bob Rogers that the Lyndeborough Planning Board accept the plan subject to the notes about septic placement being put on the plan. After discussion regarding the recommendations of Tracey Tarr, the MOTION was WITHDRAWN as the Board wanted to hear her full report at the next meeting before accepting the plan.
A MOTION was made by Neil Faiman and SECONDED by Walter Zuber that the Wilton Board find that the proposed alternative lot development better serves the neighborhood than that of a conventional lot layout.
 Voting: 5 ayes; motion carried.
A MOTION was made by Neil Faiman and SECONDED by Bill Condra to grant the waiver of checklist item 6.1(n).
Voting: 5 ayes; motion carried.
Steve Wagner noted that if the Board allowed feedback to be filtered through him, it may speed up the process. 
A MOTION was made by Bill Condra and SECONDED by Neil Faiman to continue the application to August 7, 2008 in Lyndeborough.
Voting: 5 ayes; motion carried.
2. Sign Application – Eastview Condominium Association – Applicant is proposing an 8’ x 3’, freestanding, sign constructed of 2” sign foam with a metal frame.
 
Bill appeared before the Board and explained that the applicant wants to take the current sign off the wall and place a sign on top of the wall as they have been using concrete to hold the stones of the wall in place and now the concrete is dilapidated. He is proposing erecting the sign behind the stone wall so that it will sit just above the stone wall. The dimensions are 8’ long, and 3’ high for a total of 24 SF. In response to a question from the Board, Bill explained that the sign will be viewable from both sides and that it will be made of two pieces of dense sign foam that will sandwich the posts. The Board determined that Lot D-095 is in the residential/agricultural district and therefore a sign can only by 4 SF.
A MOTION was made by Walter Zuber and SECONDED by Bill Condra to deny the application due to non- compliance of regulation 16.1.2.2 as the sign is too large.
Voting: 4 ayes; with Neil Faiman abstaining as the issue will probably be going to the Zoning Board on an appeal.
Other Business
The Board brainstormed the following issues that they would like to discuss in a future work session.
  • Bringing the Building Code up to date to reference the new international codes
  • Wellhead protection after meeting with the Water Commissioners and receiving the Emory and Garrett report.
  • Refine language for zoning districts
