17-2 DAVID AND INNA MASCO – 178-5 BOSTON POST ROAD – AMEND EXISING PERMIT.
Mr. Masco submitted a letter to the commission dated July 16, 2017 explaining that the terrace the commission approved cannot be constructed as discussed. Therefore, Mr. Masco requested an amendment to allow the terrace to be built with footings that would be able to support both the weight on the terrace as well as not be lifted as the structure is located in a wind zone.
The commission discussed with Mr. Masco the revised construction plans.
Evan Griswold made a motion to amend the existing permit to allow the decking to be secured to the minimum amount of 8” sonitube footings required by the building official and the Inland Wetlands Officer be notified prior to construction and proper erosion controls are in place.
Christian Tompkins seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.
