Re: Application # 506
Site Walk Minutes – 9:00am, Saturday, July 11, 2015 at #220 Umpawaug Road, Redding
Re: Proposed Expansion of BCRL for grading purposes
For the Planning Commission: Nancy King, Regina O’Brien, Jim Bacon
Applicant: Brook Clark, Landscape Architect, Janice Parker Landscape Architects
We reviewed the areas of the proposed grading beyond the existing BCRL. The building and property features were staked and a staking plan was provided. Brook discussed the potential alternatives to the grading scheme. Walls would be approximately 10 feet in height behind the proposed pool and pool house.
While the site is primarily wooded currently, there were no significant trees noted. The exposed ledge is a main feature on the site and is proposed to be preserved.
It was noted that most likely blasting would be employed for the house foundation and pool as extensive exposed ledge is visible throughout the area of the proposed house and pool.
All agreed that the commission would discuss the site walk further at the upcoming Planning meeting.
The site walk ended at 10:00 a.m.
