Planning Commission considers subdivisions and boundary adjustments

By Marvin Fishman

Change may come to the Bingham Brook area, with the Charlotte Planning Commission considering two subdivision proposals on April 17. The commission approved a motion to extend for six months the sketch plan for the Krasnow family’s Bingham Brook project. The project would divide the parcel into nine lots.

The commission also approved a reaffirmation of the previously approved 2-lot subdivision by Jason and Jensa Bushey for property at 648 Bingham Brook Road. The reaffirmation is solely to allow recording of the mylar in the town land records. A reaffirmation confirms the validity of a prior judgment or decision.

Having made a visit to the site earlier in the evening, the commission then approved two boundary adjustments for Greenbush Road properties owned by Jed and Kelly Dousevicz and Ben and Nan Mason. The Dousevicz property at 2663 Greenbush road will add .2 of an acre from the neighboring Mason parcel at 2687 Greenbush Road. The Mason parcel will add an equivalent piece from an adjoining parcel also owned by the Masons. The Dousevicz couple stated they need the .2 acres to build a larger garage at that location on their property. The approval is pending submission of a new mylar which includes the two boundary adjustments.

Town Planner Jeannine McCrumb announced that Marjorie Gale of Vermont Geological Survey will conduct an informational meeting at 6:30pm at the Planning Commission’s April 21 meeting. Gale will discuss Charlotte’s geology and hydrogeology (groundwater mapping).
