It passed on to his three daughters. - The reason for the hear'ing is for one small feature. - The main driuewa¥ going into the house which has been there for many years is to be re-located now down towards the lake. - The family has owned the property for approximately 100 years. - The applicant would like to keep it in its present state. It was necessary for Mrs. Saxe to buy out her two sisters. - The piece near Great Pond Road containing approximately 3 1/2 acres will be sold off and the driveway will be terminated. - A new driveway will go in down toward the lake. - Under Section 4.133 (3d) of the Zoning By Law any construction withing 250 feet of the lake requires a Special Permit. - More driveway below the 250 foot line will be abandoned than that which will be added. - Under the Zoning By Law, this must be addressed by the Conservation Commission. They have visited the site and "signed off" A note from Anthony Galvagna, Chairman of the Conservation Commission, dated 10/13/84, was read. Attorney Vincent Manzi, representing Albert Manzi, 440 Great Pond Road, spoke in opposition. He stated: - They are here concerning the entire development. In order to allow the Special Permit, the Board must consider safety factors, ie., public safety and public health. - The drinking supply must be taken into consideration. - He asked that the Board attach a condition that will address the issue of public safety and health of the people of North Andover. Any septic system test and permit would have to be first established so that any upgrading would not have a detrimental impact on the people of North Andover. MOTION: by Mr. Burke to grant the Special Permit subject to the following conditions: Only the proposed work as shown on the plan entitled "Proposed Driveway Grading Plan for Potter Estate" dated 10/1/84, (including Material Specifications) is allowed under this Permit. Any minor changes meeting the intent of said plan and determined to have lesser impact on the Lake's Watershed must be approved by the Planning Board prior to implementation in the field. 2.

MOTION: by Mr. James to take the plan under advisement SECOND: by Mr. Burke VOTE : Unanimous - motion carries Ingalls Crossing II - completion date and status of pond Ben Osgood reported that neither the subdivision nor the pond are finished. He needs some guidance from the Planning Board. The guidelines are not clear. Mr. Cyr said tha~ Mr. Osgood knows what he has to do and that he just doesn't want to do it. He recommended that the Board give him until next week and then take the bond if the work is not completed. Mr. Roberts instructed the Town Planner to arrange a meeting with the Highway Surveyor and the developer. Mr. Cyr added that there is a cross section planned. The catch basin should be 7 1/2 to 8 inches below the finish portion of the road. There were four neighbors present for Ingalls Crossing II. Mr. Osgood said he will seed the area that is damaged. There are crowns from 9 to 11 inches, especially near Lots 7 and 8. Placed on the agenda for the Board's 11/15/84 meeting. Ingalls Crossin~ III - Preliminary Plan Submittal Discussion set for 11/5/84 Spring Hill - Definitive Plan Submittal Set for 11/26/84 Correspondence from residents of Marion Drive, Evergreen Drive and Chestnut Street A petition addressing the access to the new Watts Regulator building on Route 114 was presented. There was a meeting with the Highway Surveyor, the Town Planner, the Fire Chief, and Departments Heads. Town Planner Karen Nelson highlighted the meeting for those present tonight. Mr. Nick DeNitto, Marion Drive, stated that the nature of the problem is safety. The only procedure that was required was a building permit from the Building Inspector, which has been obtained. The concerns of the abutters is that a tremendous amount of excavation was done without the benefit of a permit from any Board of department. Apparently, the plans were submitted and the plan did not include any access to Chestnut Street, which is their point of contention. It is their only access to Marion Drive, Evergreen Drive and Chestnut Street. At the meeting this morning a representative from Watts said it was the first time he had seen the plan and it is dated 10/18/84. The essense of their complaint is that perhaps the majority of them don't argue that the development is occuring but the safety hazard that it is creating must be addressed. All options have not been explored. With the advent of potential access to Route 125 the Flagship Drive access would be more prudent and a better access. The other alternative is direct access to Route 114. What they have is a cart path. Questions have not been answered. The Fire Chief and the Police Chief don't want them to use Route 114. No one at the meeting could come up with any traffic studies. The Chairman of the Merrimack Valley Planning Commission has drafted a report which should be due in about 4 weeks. Decisions were made by officials without any real basis. There is a fourth option suggested by Ted Phelan, an abutter. A de-accelleration lane was suggested by him that would go up through a slice of land between Chestnut Street and their land. No applicaion was filed for the excavation. An EPA application was filed, but no Impact Statement was required. It seems that no one other than the Building Inspector has any authority in this case. The Planning Board must exercise some control. Mr. Roberts told the audience that the Town Planner will look into the situation. Mr. James suggested contacting Town Counsel for his opinion on how much control the Planning Board has. Mr. Burke requested correspondence from the Fire Chief, Police Chief, all town agencies, as well as the Building Inspector and the School Department. Dick Valle, Evergreen Drive, added that since there is only one access road to the residential portion of the neighborhood, something that will affect and double the traffic should come under the jurisdiction of the Planning Board. It should not affect the residential area behind it. The only access they have will become an industrial access. The closer traffic exiting on to Route 114, the more people there is for an accident. Herb Myers, Evergreen Drive, added that two years ago, he talked to Mr. Cyr and Mr. Salisbury of the Board of Selectmen about the safety hazards on Chestnut Street. Mr. Eidelman of the State DPW was there. It was agreed that is is a very dangerous situation. The embankement was supposed to be lowered but nothing was ever done. Now, the traffic will double and you are saying that nothing else other than what is necessary will be done. It is very inconsistent. It had already been approved for widening. Mr. Fiore added that the road is very narrow and asked who is going to pay to have it upgraded. The Bridges - Establishment of bond amounts Mr. Burke abstanied MOTION: by Mr. James to establish the bond amounts of $90,000 per the recommendations of the Highway Surveyor and Board of Public Works and release the remaining lots from the covenant. SECOND: by Mr. Nitzsche VOTE : Unanimous - motion carries The Pines - Sign plans MOTION: by Mr. Nitzsche to sign the plans with the condition that the Town Planner review the plans and covenant.
