Development Review Board approves three applications

The Development Review Board moved quickly through its agenda at its meeting March 3. First up, they approved an application for a simple boundary line adjustment for two adjacent properties at 434 and 436 Hillside Terrace which involved the transfer of some 641 square feet between the two.

Next, they reviewed a site plan application submitted by Elizabeth Smardon for a two-lot residential subdivision on her property at 1056 Falls Road. They classified it as a minor subdivision and authorized her to prepare a Final Plan Application which will be subject to review by the Historic Preservation and Design Review Commission as well as the DRB.

The third item on the agenda concerned an application by Shelburne Green for minor site plan modifications which were approved by the DRB. The application originally included a request for a modification of the prior conditions of approval to extend café operating hours from 6pm to 8pm, two hours later than previously approved, but that request was withdrawn at the meeting by David Marshall of Civil Engineering Associates speaking on behalf of the owners.

The DRB then discussed and adopted the rules of discovery and evidence that will be used for on the record reviews for all appeals from determinations of the Development Review Board.

Before closing the meeting, DRB Chair Mark Sammut thanked Jerry Storey for his dedicated service on the DRB and the other board members joined Sammut in wishing Storey good luck on the Selectboard.
