The committee reviewed a request from the owner of # 516 Fox Mountain Road for an easement on common land which would allow for the expansion of their current septic system from a 3½ bedroom system to a 5½ bedroom system. The easement, as described in a plot plan prepared by Southern Vermont Engineering, showed the area requiring an easement which was 10 feet x 160 feet along the west border of the property. The easement would only be for a protection zone and no disturbing for this area would occur.
After review and discussion the committee will recommend to the Chimney Hill Board of Directors to grant the 10 foot x 160 foot easement to allow for a septic protection zone.
