The Mattapoisett Planning Board heard a proposal for a new residential subdivision to be located off Fairhaven Road. The extensive project would include the construction of several new homes and the expansion of the existing roadway.
The lot will use an open drainage system that will discharge to a catch basin and the local wetlands. He said that a conservation restriction will be placed on almost 30 acres of land as the area is a habitat for the eastern box turtle.
The hearing was continued until December 17 so that the town could organize a peer review of the plan.
