NEW BUSINESS Flanagan A motion was made by Rolf Knudsen to deny the request of Edward Flanagan. It did not get a second and therefore was withdrawn. A motion was made by Thomas Ginnerty and seconded by Richard Allphin to grant the request of Edward Flanagan whose property is located at Columbia Lane and further identified as Tax Assessor's Plat 2, Lot 152 for a variance from Article 3, Section 308 (Setback from Freshwater Wetlands) to construct a septic system which will be 130 ft. from freshwater wetlands instead of the required 150 ft. This Board has determined that this application does satisfy the requirements of Article 6, Section 606, Paragraphs 1 through 4.

The property is located in a RR80 zone and contains 118,800 sq. ft. 2. That the plan complies with D.E.M. 3. That the request only requires a 20 foot change. 4. To conform to the 150 ft. requirement would require changes to the contour of the land, potentially causing runoff to adjacent property, and potential destruction of large old trees. The motion carried by a vote of 4 - 1. Rolf voted against the motion.
