Clerical Duplication Stalls Certificate

During the November 28 meeting of the Mattapoisett Conservation Commission, a request for a Certificate of Compliance from one applicant, Farland Corporation, was tabled, given that another property owner was using the same Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection file number.

            Farland requested that a Certificate of Compliance be issued for 16 Nantucket Drive. However, a home built at that address by Armand Cotelleso also appears to be using the same DEP file number. Chairman Mike King stated, “I think something happened during the closing,” that caused the two developers to use the same number. “We’ll table this until we can get some clarification.”

            A Certificate of Compliance was issued to Debbie Blais, 44 Pico Beach Road.

            Earlier in the proceedings, a Request for Determination of Applicability filed by Chase Wingate, 42 River Road, for the installation of sewer lines for connection to the municipal sewer system was approved. Rich Ricco of Field Engineering explained that a minimum number of trees would be cleared, including three diseased pines. A Negative Box 3 determination was issued.

            A Notice of Intent filed by Chapman Dickerson and Melanie Dixon, 6 River Road, for the construction of a pool cabana, residential addition and shed was represented by Rick Charon of Charon Associates Inc.

            Charon gave details relevant to the Mattapoisett River front wetlands located throughout the property and his client’s efforts to keep all construction as far away from resource areas as possible. Charon also noted that construction will not impede wildlife movement in and around the riverfront area. The entire parcel predates the establishment of the riverfront act, Charon stated. The project was conditioned.

            The commission conditioned the Notice of Intent filing brought by Daniel Chase, 0 Nicky’s Lane, for the construction of a roadway and associated drainage features.

            At the end of the meeting, the long list of enforcement orders and/or complaints lodged with the commission’s office were all deemed in some state of follow-up and acted upon by property owners.

            The next meeting of the Mattapoisett Conservation Commission is scheduled for Monday, December 12, at 6:30 pm.
