July 9, 2013


Present: Rand Clark (Chair), Dan Plourde, Dick Hall, Valerie Cole (Alt)

Town Employees: Jim Roberts (CEO)

Public: Lyla Kyriazi



Minutes from June 18, 2013 were read and approved. Dan Plourde motioned to accept, Dick Hall seconded, all voted in favor.


Old Business:


Lyman Planning Board members were not present but will be notified of the Dayton Planning Board’s decision. 


Lyla Kyriazi presented plans to combine Lots 8 and 9 of Linwood Acres. This would also involve taking out the hammerhead and creating a driveway instead of a road. Dick Hall noted that it would have less impact than the original two house lots.


Jim Roberts asked if there would be any conditions to address further division of the lot. If it is divided again, it would be necessary to have a road. Dan Plourde asked if there should be anything to address further division off the current road, noting that any change in plans may require a road to come off Route 35 and that probably would not be worth doing. Lyla Kyriazi explained that if the lot is divided again the owners would have to build a road off Apple Blossom Lane. Jim Roberts pointed out that someone could try to build more houses there, but Lyla Kyriazi did not feel that it could be further divided.


Dick Hall clarified that it could benefit the town to define this. (Example: if more houses are added, the water tank might not be big enough.) According to subdivision regulations, after five years a lot could be split off this piece without falling under subdivision restrictions. Depending on the house’s location, the owners might have to go through Lyman to get approval and possibly build a driveway off Route 35.  


Rand Clark questioned the "iron pipe found" notation on the plan: probably a town line. Jim Roberts wondered if the zoning is different in Lyman- perhaps the lot requirements are bigger.


Dick Hall thought there is no compelling reason to limit this, as this may not even be entirely buildable. Lyla Kyriazi feels that, due to wetlands, there are no more than two possible lots there, as was first proposed in the original subdivision plan. Jim Roberts repeated that after five years any potential land division would not fall under the subdivision plan. Dick Hall pointed out that if this lot is divided into two lots again, it would be following the original plan anyway. Dan Plourde had no objections to limiting this division. His feeling is that anyone buying this lot would have a lot of work to do in order to divide it. Jim Roberts explained that if someone wanted to put in a driveway on the Lyman side, they would have to approach Lyman, but they would not if they stay on the Dayton side.


Dan Plourde motioned to accept this plan as presented by Lyla Kyriazi to combine Lots 8 and 9, as drawn in the revised plan by Robert C. Libby Junior of BH2M, dated July 2013. Dick Hall seconded, all voted in favor. This will not change any existing restrictions or conditions on the subdivision. No other conditions were placed.


New Business: None discussed.


The meeting adjourned at 7:45 PM. The next meeting is Tuesday, August 6, 2013, at 7:00 PM.
