Shorts from the Conservation Commission, June 24
• 230 Concord Street. The ConsCom approved a permit for Jacqueline and Stephen Hamilton to repair or replace a boulder retaining wall that marks the boundary of their wet meadow that runs between Concord and Westford Streets just outside Carlisle center. The wall, built in 1994, will be restored or replaced in the same location with the same elevations. The work will be done from the upland side of the wall to avoid damage to the wetland. The land is identified as agricultural under MGL Chapter 61A and the Hamiltons indicated they have an approved farm plan.
• 142 Bedford Road. A revised permit (Amended Order of Conditions) was approved for Applewood Construction. The change in plan, described by George Dimakarakos of the engineering firm of Stamski and McNary, reduces the size of the planned two-bedroom single-family house. A concrete block house formerly stood on the site. The project also includes a well, septic system and associated grading.
• 129 Cross Street. A Certificate of Compliance was approved, closing out a project for building a single-family house and a driveway with a wetland resource area crossing, along with drilling a well and doing related grading. The permit had been issued to Suzanne and Jonathan Bohs in 2007 and revised in 2008 to include removal of rock and restoration of a wetland after blasting caused a landslide.
• 125 South Street. The continuation of the public hearing relative to remediation of an oil spill in April along 50 Acre Way was postponed to July 8 at 8:15 p.m. This was at the request of applicant George Lohrer at whose home a swimming pool fuel line was inadvertantly broken. ∆
