7:15 p.m. The work session continued with public session.

 

Pine Crest Farm (Fergusson), Township File SA 2010-03

 

Mr. Gray updated the Board with information that the Clark’s, who purchased Lot 2, have now purchased the remaining 3 lots on the parcel, including the existing farmhouse. He said they intend to convert the barn to recreation for family use and make other various improvements. Mr. Gray said they have been cleaning out the multiflora and buffer areas, and have met with the Landscape Review Consultant to discuss developing a comprehensive landscape plan for the buffer areas that have been left as an existing hedgerow.  As a result, in working with a landscape architect, the Clark’s may be requesting to adjust some easements and resource areas in the future.

 

Mr. Gray said the Clark’s have requested to install two light posts, rather than only one per driveway as was approved, at the end of the common drive onto Burnt House Hill, due to vandalization and damage to the existing wall. He said it will not be in a conservation area, and will be located out of the right-of-way. Mr. Forest noted it is a nice entrance and he has no problem with two lights as requested.

 

Mr. Gray said the Clark’s have also requested to remove a large maple tree which is between the old farmhouse driveways, and has made a request to PennDOT for a single driveway. He said the Landscape Review Consultant does not oppose removal of the maple tree, as it is on its last legs. 

 

Histand Tract (Sycamore Hollow Farm), Township File SA 2010-01

 

Mr. Gray said in talking with Ms. Corsini and Mr. Jones, property owners, they said there is a prospective purchaser who would like to rehabilitate the existing farmhouse on Lot 1 without building the new house that was shown on the Approved Plans. Ms. Corsini  asked if the purchasers are only maintaining the house, do they need to complete the stormwater management requirements for that lot. Mr. Gray explained each lot on the plan has individual stormwater management requirements. However Mr. Gray suggested if no additional impervious surface was to be added perhaps a revision to the plan approval may be considered, if they agree to maintain the building façade via the easement which was proposed at one time and add no additional impervious surfaces to the lot.

 

Mrs. Rash said that would be fantastic. Mr. Smith said the easement is drafted if they decide to proceed in this manner.

 

7:30 p.m. The Work Session was adjourned.

 

 

Approved by the Board of Supervisors on the 2nd day of January, 2018.
