A house dating to 1690 at 370 Delano Road will be moved to another location on the same property. Owners Thomas and Susan Dexter presented their plans to the Commission and said that the dwelling would be moved from 370 Delano Road to 366 Delano Road onto a new foundation south of the old dwelling. A 14-by-20-foot addition and a deck between the existing dwelling and the moved dwelling will be built.
In other business, the Commission took under consideration a Request for Determination of Applicability to demolish and reconstruct a dwelling at 16 South Street, as well as construct a gravel driveway to access the new garage.
Next up was a discussion about a Notice of Intent for a six-acre parcel on Planting Island to landscape. The proposed work includes trimming or removal of select trees, underbrush, and ground cover, and the replacement of said vegetation as shown on the Landscape Design Plan presented to the Conservation Commission. A spirited discussion followed the presentation, and the Commission agreed to revisit the extensive property and meet again with the owners.
In committee, the group agreed to respond in favor of the Marion Zoning Board of Appeals request for comments regarding the request to slightly relocate the access road/driveway in order to eliminate the bridge entry into the proposed complex.
