Vol. IV No. 15 8/1/2023
Key Take Aways from Planning Board (PB) July 18, 2023
There was only one agenda item: consider Form A for 212 Old Stockbridge Road. A single LLC bought two adjacent parcels — estimated at 2 acres and 6 acres — and want to combine them into one. All the frontage is in Lenox and the backyards are in Stockbridge. With no frontage in Stockbridge, there may not have been action necessary by Stockbridge PB. Apparently, they endorsed it anyway with a caveat recommended by Town Counsel: "endorsement of this plan does not constitute an attestation of compliance with either zoning requirements or subdivision conditions."
One PB member asked if Lis Wheeler (member of both PB and AHT) could give report on the Housing Production Plan meeting (See report above). The Chair declined. Meeting adjourned.
Editor's note: "Form A (also referred to as an ANR Plan) is the division of a tract of land into two or more lots, whereby every lot within the tract so divided (a) has frontage on an acceptable way as specified in MGL C.41, S. 81L, (b) meets the minimum frontage requirement required by zoning for the district, and (c) is determined by the Planning Board to have vital access to the buildable portion of the lots."
