by the Planning Board which describes how existing woods, fields, meadows or other natural areas shall be maintained in accordance with good conservation practices.
All areas to be set aside as open space shall be conveyed free of any mortgage interest, security interest, liens or other encumbrances inconsistent with using and maintaining the open space as such in perpetuity.
Maintenance of Open Space
In any case where open space is not conveyed to the Town, the Town shall be granted an easement over such land sufficient to ensure its perpetual maintenance as conservation or recreation land and to allow the Town to enter the property for the purposes of inspecting the maintenance of the property. Such easement shall provide that in the event the trust or other owner fails to maintain the open space in reasonable condition, the Town may, after notice to the lot owners and public hearing, enter upon such land to maintain it in order to prevent or abate a nuisance. The cost of such maintenance by the Town shall be assessed against the properties within the development and/or to the owner of the open space. The Town may file a lien against the lot or lots to ensure payment of such maintenance expenses.
Where the boundaries of the open space are not readily observable in the field, the Planning Board may require placement of surveyed bounds sufficient to identify the location of the open space.
Number of Dwelling Units - The maximum number of dwelling units for an OSRD shall be determined by a Conventional Yield Plan. For the purposes of determining the number of OSRD dwelling units, each conceptual conventional lot must meet the requirements of a buildable lot for a dwelling unit as defined in the zoning district in which the OSRD is located and meet all other applicable requirements of the Zoning Bylaw and the Subdivision Regulations. Except as set forth below, in no case shall the number of dwelling units permitted exceed that which would be permitted under a conventional ("grid") subdivision that complies with the Town Zoning Bylaw and the Subdivision Rules and Regulations of the Planning Board and any other applicable laws and regulations of the Town or the state.
