Mr. Soper, engineer Mark Farrell, and abutter Ronald Paquette were present. Mr. Soper presented his house plans. The attached garage will face Hisgen Road. Mr. Paquette stated he does not want an increase of water flow into his house or water to sit or pool on his property line after Mr. Soper finishes building his house and grading is completed. Mr. Farrell stated that the front driveway area would be cut down to improve water run-off. Mr. Paquette admitted that water has entered his basement three to four times a year. Mr. Paquette said that he attended a HCC meeting as the Board suggested. He said that since there were no HCC issues involved they did not have to make any comments regarding building on the site.
