The conservation commission considered one Request for Determination of Applicability (RDA), one continuance of a hearing from the last meeting and one attempt to amend a previously-approved Notice of Intent (NOI) at its January 25 meeting.

· The RDA submitted by Basil Bourque of Hutchins Road called for preparation and construction of an inground pool with 350 square feet of work within the buffer zone of a bordering vegetated wetland. He proposed an 18 by 36-foot pool with a low-chlorine system. Commissioner Jo Rita Jordan suggested rotating the pool to get it out of the buffer zone, and after the applicant compromised on the location, he got his okay to proceed.

· The continuance involved an application filed by Michael Kenney of Hart Farm Estates, represented by engineer Joseph March of Stamski and McNary. The applicant had responded to commission requests to get more of the original 15,500 square feet of work in the wetland buffer out of that zone. Commissioner John Lee warned the developer that no further recreational features would be approved for the lot. Kenney said he would warn buyers, but couldn't guarantee they might not try later. A standard order of conditions was voted with the further proviso that one-cubic-foot boulders be placed at 15-foot intervals along the haybale line.

· The commission turned down an attempt by developer Theodore Treibick to get permission to transfer a previously-approved NOI from one roadway to another on his property off East Street. His engineer was informed that a new NOI would be required.
