Site inspections are made for all Applications for Permit and Requests for Determinations. The Applicant or a representative shall be present at the site inspection.
The Commission may waive the requirements of this Section if conditions such as deep snow or extreme high water exist at the site. A subsequent site visit which meets the requirements of this Section must be held prior to the onset of work on site.
Before site inspections can be made by the Conservation Commission or Commission’s agent, the following conditions must be met:
Stakes indicating the corners of the proposed structures or other proposed alterations nearest the wetland resource areas shall be in place;
Stakes indicating the limit of proposed work must be in place;
Lot number or house number must be posted at the site location;
Edges of all resource areas shall be clearly delineated with numbered flags or stakes; and
Directions shall be made available to the Commission to locate the property.
Failure to have the lot properly staked may result in non-review and thus costly delays of the project.
Upon completion of the staking, the Commission must be notified; a site inspection shall be arranged prior to the public hearing or public meeting.
The Applicant shall be required to make an accurate record of the site visit, including but not limited to, significant responses to questions, and proposed changes in design and plans, and submit this record to the Commission within five (5) days of the visit. The record of the visit shall be submitted into the record of the Applicant. The Commission reserves the right to amend the report as it deems necessary to accurately reflect the site visit.
Requirements for Notices of Intent
All applications for Permits shall describe the proposed activity and its effect on the environment. Due regard shall be shown for all natural features
