Cold River Road residents, Mr. Earl Miller and Ms. Judith Pritchard, appeared before the Commission regarding clarification as to whether their proposed land transaction could be reviewed as a lot line adjustment rather than a subdivision.

 

Town Administrator, Mr. Joseph Zingale Jr., told the Commissioners that the proposal could not be reviewed as a lot line adjustment since the parcel of land to be purchased is greater than a tenth of an acre.

 

Ms. Pritchard told the Commissioners that the land is not buildable and that she planned to let her son park his vehicles on the parcel rather than in her yard.

 

Mr. Miller showed on the map where the new subdivision line would be placed. Mr. Miller requested he not be required to do a full survey in order to get a subdivision permit from the Commission. Mr. McKane said a survey is required according to the Town subdivision regulations.

 

Mr. Burgess questioned if there were any monuments or pins in the area where Mr. Miller wants to subdivide. Ms. Pritchard and Mr. Miller discussed the proposed subdivision and what the Commission will require for information.

 

Mr. Burgess inquired as to the proposed curb cut location. Ms. Pritchard described the general location. Mr. Burgess cited the fact that a curb cut permit would be required.

 

Mr. McKane and Mr. Burgess said it would acceptable to them to only survey the proposed property line.
