A Dec. 16, 2003 letter from Nick Decesare, Principal Pipeline Specialist for Tennessee Gas received by Dan O'Brien as a 1 yr. approval letter. O'Brien stated that the gasline people came out before he designed. The Building envelopes go up to the easement.

The Sight Distance Profile was presented by Caffarelli. It was noted that the utilities can cross the gas line as long as they are located 18' above or below the gas line.

Antonio daCruz faxed his "Definitive Plan Review - Follow-up" dated Dec. 16 and, led by Reeves , the Board reviewed the various items. In discussing the dry hydrant which is for convenience, Majkut noted that he is in favor of it and will check with Fire Chief Hatch.

It was agreed that the guard rails will be of pressure treated wood rather than galvanized steel. This will be noted in the plan.

The developer will provide a signed copy of the Tennessee Gas Agreement to the Board.

The Extension will be up on Jan. 10 and the Board will be looking for an extension. Verbal approval will probably be given at the next meeting.

Gary submitted this plan for two streets, Shadowwood Way and Abby Lane for Wilfred Lemieux. Weiner will file with the Town Clerk tomorrow and pay the'$1,020 fee.

Dolben offered to be the point man on this subdivision as he served as such on the never completed Hampden Hills Estates. He took a set of the plans. Clerk will disperse the others.


Majkut has not made contact with the person in charge as yet. We don't need to take action and it is felt materials were given to us as an annual report is required.
