III. Review Application:
Mark and Sarah Williamson
Tax Map 17, Lot 03, Great Cranberry Island
Single Family Residential Dwelling
A September 10, 2007 communication from Mark Williamson has been received by the Planning Board authorizing both Sam Van Dam and Eve Harrison to act as agents on his behalf on any pending permit applications before the Cranberry Isles Planning Board and its Code Enforcement Officer, Kim Keene.
The Chairman of the Planning Board has deemed the application to be complete. Tax Map 17, Lot 03 is in a mixed residential district. The application asks for permission to construct a new single family residential dwelling with two stories, and six bedrooms, not eight bedrooms as originally planned. The existing building does not conform to side yard setback requirements, but the new building is planned to conform. Mr. Van Dam states that the new structure will be out of FEMA zones and will include breakaway panels as an extra precaution. Mr. Van Dam personally certifies that the location is within Department of Environmental Standards. The applicant already has a permit for a driveway. The plans are for a two phase project, with the garage and bunkhouse being built this year, and following summer 2008, to finish the rest of the house, and tear down the existing residence.
Section VI, Existing Uses, Expansions, Suspension o r Discontinuance, Change of Ownership, Non-Conforming Lots-Land Use Ordinance for the Shorelands, Town of Cranberry Isles.
Sally Rowan moves that the application meets the requirements of Section VI. Steve Philbrook seconds the motion. (3-0, with one abstaining).
IV. Other Business
A report from the Chairman is that there may be business to conduct for the Planning Board in reference to the Murch Property and building in the Low Density Residential Zone.
V. Adjournment: 7:17 P.M.
Bill Dowling moves to adjourn the meeting. Sally Rowan seconds the motion (4-0) Motion passes.
