Antrim Planning Board Notice of Balloon Test and Public Hearing for a PWSF.

Wetlands Permit Application.  Paul Ezen, Blaisdell Lake Dock Owners Association, 220-225 Rte 114, Tax Map 02, Block 704, Lot 486.  Proposed project is to rebuild a +/- 48 foot section of steep shoreline along Route 114 with a modular block retaining wall.  An existing failing dry-set stone wall collapses and must be re-built by hand each spring.  The slope is steeper than 50% and is a source of erosion.  There is a +/- 10 feet of shoulder between the traveled way and the lake providing very little stormwater treatment.  The work will include permitting two replacement seasonal docks.

Next Meeting: February 12, 2019
