Presenters: Mr. Hill and Mr. Wright

Audience: About 50 members.
There is no agenda or audio recorded for this meeting.
Mr. Hill and Mr. Wright discussed the status of the proposed ten (10) lot development near Greenbackville harbor (see map). The prospective developer is Todd Burbage. One issue is the creation of a sewer treatment plant just west of Church Street. This sewer treatment plant (STP) as stated will handle 6,000 gallons of gray water per day for the ten lot development. This Town Hall meeting was for informational purposes and to sign up local residents in order to disseminate information and any concerns.
Comments and Questions to Ron Wolff
Mr. Wolff was asked how STP will be monitored. He indicated that there could be oversight by a county Public Service Authority (PSA). Mr. Wolff was asked what would happen if developer steps away, and one possible answer is that the county steps in.
In general it takes five (5) years for application to be completed. Some of the information was given in 2007 for subdivision plat. With respect to STP, nothing can begin until health department okays designs, and then the county’s Board of Supervisors needs to approve the health department recommendations.
One consideration is a massive STP; in Greenbackville there is 118 homes occupied.
There is a petition to delay any approval of the STP until Greenbackville residents are given more info.
Town Hall Meeting ended around 9 PM.
