RFD; REID SILVA FOR BLUE SKY MV, LTD; 41 Cobbs Hill Rd.; AP 11-23.3: Mr. Silva reviewed the plan to remove an elevated golf tee, remove briar bushes, miscellaneous dead trees, maintain a meadow and prune the scrub oak along the top of a coastal bank to a height of four feet. All of the work is within the 100-foot buffer zone of a coastal bank. The closest activity is on the edge of the bank. After brief discussion of the site visit a motion was made for a negative determination with the following special conditions: 1. A site plan delineating the limits of the meadow near the tee box that will be separated from the manicured lawn shall be provided. 2. When future maintenance of the pruning is needed a plan shall be reviewed with the Conservation Agent before work
begins. The motion was seconded and with no further discussion passed unanimously with five in favor.

The proposed site is approximately 60 and 70 feet from two adjacent Bordering Vegetated Wetlands that drain into a coastal pond. The structure will be placed on cedar supports. No in-ground foundation will be used. There will be no electric or water service in the greenhouse. Upon review a motion was made for a negative determination. The motion was seconded and with no discussion passed unanimously with four in favor.
