Things we must do between now and our next meeting:
- Work with an engineer to design our septic/waste water system
- Ensure that our building envelope does not encroach upon the wetlands bordering our land
- Designate space on our land for a 'primitive path' connecting the land behind the Hayes' to Butternut Road so that hikers, etc. can move across our land easily
They've also instructed us to paint our house in natural colors and to provide landscape screening ("to soften its views from Butternut Road"). However, we are not to plant any vegetation that "obscures or will eventuall observe" the views to the north. So some shrubs and trees...but not too many. Oy vey.
I suppose it's too early to be choosing shrubs anyway...we first need a house plan!
