Mr. Colagreco noted the following concerns of the Three Ponds Homeowners: trail system not to dead end on Three Ponds properties; lots 8B and 9 are undersized; conservation easements of 150 feet buffer along border; building envelopes, lots 8B and 9 as one lot, not to be subdivided at a later date.
Architectural controls were discussed, the Applicants questioning the reasonableness for such controls. Mr. Martin stated that this Plan is located in the Middle Pickering Rural Historic District and new residences should be compatible with this designation. Mrs. Ewald suggested the Applicants visit Four Oaks Farm as an example of what the Supervisors do not want repeated in the historic district. Further discussions were held on escrow funds for common drives and definition of lots.
