Jon Warzocha, from Horizons Engineering, is bringing forth the Site Plan Application for Mount Deception Campground/Carl Brooks. Jon said the campground has been in existence since the 60’s. It has expanded here and there. So they will need to establish what was there in 1979, state permits,etc.

Submission requirements: (a copy will be attached to the hard copy in the office)
• On page 2 of 5, we are asking for a waiver for “Name, number and signed seal of surveyor and/or engineer” because there are no boundary line surveys that we can find. Board asked for the request for the waiver to be written out and given to board.

• Also on page 3 of 5, 7th one down,”Storm drainage…….” asking for drainage waiver as not changing anything or moving anything. Board asked for letter of waiver for record.

Chief Jeremy Oleson:
• Fire protection, correcting existing roads, following NFPA #1194. If expansion happens you will probably more would be needed.

Chairman Hogan made motion to: accept the application for a Site Plan for Mount Deception Campground/Carl Brooks, Map 419, Lot 15, 1 Old Cherry Mountain Road, Twin Mountain, NH, with these conditions:
1. Written requests to the board most accompany waivers for signed seal of surveyor, property lines with bearings (page 2 of 5) and storm drainage plan (page 3 of 5)
