Keystone updates Verstandig's site plan

Planning Board member John Smolinsky said he wanted to see the finalized storm water plans.

"There's an issue in the neighborhood on how this project will affect it," he said, "it is important whether it is a positive or negative affect."

Smolinsky also raised concerns about Keystone already bringing fill into the site before receiving planning approval.

"It's all on the up and up here. The town's fully aware," Bolduc told Smolinsky. "We're not excavating, we're just dumping fill there."

Keystone is currently taking fill from other job sites and bringing it to Verstandig's lot because one side of the property needs to be built up significantly, Bolduc said. His company has a grading permit from the town, which was granted because the requirement for erosion sediment control was met.

Director of Economic Development and Planning Michael Morelli said Bolduc was in compliance with town code.

"There is no excavating going on," Morelli said. "The thought was, 'Why truck it through town twice?'"

Smolinsky responded by saying, "I guess I read the zoning code differently than you," to which Morelli answered, "I guess you do."

The hours of construction were also brought up during the discussion.

"In order to do this we have to have work hours to complete this project. We want it done as soon as possible," Bolduc said he proposed a 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. work schedule from Monday through Saturday. No work will be done on Sundays, and Saturday hours may be cut down some.

Bolduc said the project would take two or three years to complete.

"It's going to be inconvenient. I'm sorry but there's going to be some inconvenience involved," he concluded.

Smolinsky said he likes the project overall, but proper discussion was needed to ensure all the angles of the project and potential impacts were thoroughly researched.

"This is a very good project," he said. "It is important to have a very good project in very good neighborhood.""
