Ron Bonvie was present to discuss the Phase Approval for Phase III, Section 5.
Mr. Bonvie confirmed that his engineer and Mr. Rowley had been in consultation regarding the plans, adding that the Fire Department had confirmed their approval. Mr. Bonvie confirmed that any changes made to the plan had been made with Mr. Rowley's input. Mr. Bonvie indicated that they were ready to begin flagging setbacks, noting that the grades were not as steep as previous phases and that some trees should be saved. Mr. Bonvie responded that the pathways were to be determined and would be shells or stone dust with a component that would harden. Per the Conservation Commission, no trees could be removed or damaged and the walkway would need to be located by the Conservation Agent prior to construction. Mr. Balzarini inquired about the pond area and Mr. Bonvie confirmed that the area would remain natural. Mr. Bonvie assured the Board that he would install trees beyond the minimum landscaping, as he has done in prior phases. Mr. Bonvie referenced an issue that had arisen while working with the Southport Street Reps. Mr. Bonvie agreed that the driveway would benefit from altering. Mr. Bonvie agreed and requested that Mr. Rowley be authorized to direct Southport, on site, exactly how best to rectify the issue.

"Margarete plays a key role in the home buying process at Southport," noted Southport developer Ron Bonvie.
The Chairman called this matter to order and recognized Ron Bonvie.Mr. Bonvie informed the Board that there is a Landscape Plan that has been reviewed and approved by the Landscape Committee.An arborist has been hired, made an inspection of the trees on the property, and has met with the Landscape Committee. Mr. Bonvie provided copies of a memorandum dated April 5, 2006 and Southport Tree Assessment, by Casey Landscape & Arboriculture, Inc.Making reference to the plan, Mr. Bonvie noted certain trees circled in red, which indicate those trees of concern by Board Members Dennis Balzarini and Myrna Nuey.Mr. Bonvie made reference to the removal of the 36-inch caliper tree, as suggested by the arborist.He also mentioned the arborist is concerned about the 18-inch caliper tree that should be monitored during construction to determine whether or not it will survive.Mr. Bonvie stated everything would be saved with the exception of the 36-inch tree.He stated he would like to follow the arborist recommendations, and that the Landscape Committee is in agreement.The Town Planner asked about specifications for the fencing, particularly in connection with the white pine trees.He asked if the arborist would be providing a plan that the Planning Board would be able to use for enforcement purposes.Mr. Bonvie agreed, stating the arborist could provide this information, that he is on staff and will be inspecting the project on a weekly basis. Mr. Bonvie stated the arborist has also suggested root pruning in those areas where tree roots are exposed, in an attempt to save the tree.Mr. Bonvie acknowledged receipt of Mr. Rowley's comment letter, stating all of his concerns could be addressed easily.Mr. Bonvie requested Planning Board approval, subject to Mr. Rowley's concerns.Southport Landscape Committee - Ron BonvieThe Chairman recognized Mr. Bonvie who stated that he has come to realize that perhaps if some of their procedures were amended, it would be beneficial to Southport.Reference was then made to a document provided by Mr. Bonvie, addressing the following:Background - Provides the current guideline procedures used for approval, removal, and preservation of trees.Mr. Bonvie suggested there should be some changes made to the process.Proposal - These are proposed changes to the tree clearing process.Items A, B, and C being portions of the process to remain without change.Proposed Changes - The area in which trees are selectively saved/removed be extended to be between 10 and 30-feet, rather than the current 10 and 20-feet from the building foundation/deck.The current guideline does not include the deck, which protrudes out an additional 12-feet.Mr. Bonvie would like approval for more flexibility as it relates to the work line.Mr. Bonvie replied the Landscape Committee and a professional arborist would be present for all site walks.The Chairman expressed concern regarding possible individual value judgements being made by a resident requesting tree removal on the basis of it being too close to their home. The Town Planner suggested the language be amended in paragraph -3- to state that the Town representative is included on all site walks (not as stated, "if requested by the Landscape Committee).Should existing trees planted for screening purposes need to be removed, said trees would be replaced.Should an area require revegetation, it is being proposed that it be done as naturally as possible.Mr. Bonvie stated he would enter into an agreement/contract with the arborist to perform random site inspections (an average of twice a week).Mr. Bonvie agreed that in the event a tree is damaged beyond saving due to construction negligence, that he will replace it with two (2) trees.The Town Planner requested the arborist provide to the Planning Board a written report, especially with regard to the second site walk as stated in paragraph -3-; and a monthly report with regard to random inspections as stated in paragraph -4-.Mr. Bonvie has requested his landscape architect to make a final inspection of finished areas with a finding report to the Planning Board for sign off.In response to a concern raised by the Chairman, Mr. Bonvie agreed that the undergrowth would be considered to be part of the naturalized area and will be preserved.Mr. Bonvie requested that in the event a tree located between two buildings needs to be removed, be replaced with smaller natural trees that do not have extensive root structures. (There was discussion about a particular existing specimen holly tree that has a 20% chance of surviving.)The Board suggested the language in paragraph -6- be amended, "Trees between buildings are to be saved only after careful consideration."Mr. Bonvie requested flexibility be granted to move planting beds or plants within a bed when necessary.Mr. Bonvie suggested the Planning Board/Staff forward all suggested language changes, for review by the Landscape Committee.(This matter was concluded at 9:20 p.m.)
