The Planning and Zoning Commission Tuesday night approved an application for a three-lot subdivision at 305 Mountain Road on a parcel owned by Carlene Laughlin.
She proposed dividing a 57.5-acre parcel into three lots to accommodate construction of two additional structures to be deeded to family members. The new lots would be just under 7 acres and about 7.5 acres.
Allied Engineering, which brought the proposal before the Planning and Zoning Commission for Laughlin, said there is currently a single-family home on the existing parcel. The land is covered by forest and has both wetlands and ledge, with thin soil over the rock. Nevertheless, soil tests have determined the lots to be able to accommodate four-bedroom houses with no impact on stormwater runoff.
