Thurber Road Subdivision—Preliminary Review
Commissioners conducted a preliminary review of a subdivision request for the property at 449 Thurber Road. The parcel is owned by J.I.F. Investment Co., Inc. In 2015 the original 213-acre parcel was subdivided into two lots of approximately 120 and 93 acres. The current proposal would divide the 93-acre land-only parcel into four lots of 21, 20, 15, and 35 acres. Guilford surveyor Thomas Wagener, who prepared the proposal, responded to questions from the Commissioners reviewed frontage requirements, rights-of-way, and other details of the application.
The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the application on July 12, 2016, at 7:00 p.m., prior to their regular monthly meeting. The hearing will be noticed at least fifteen days in advance of that date, abutters will be notified, and particulars of the request will be available for public review in the Town Office.
