This is a portion of the meeting of the Northampton, MA Conservation Commission of 12/11/08. It includes the discussion of the "Notice of Intent filed by Tofino Associates, Inc. and Northern Avenue Homes, Inc. for the construction of twenty-five dwelling units and associated roadways, parking areas, driveways, sidewalks, utilities, landscaping and stormwater management system. Project is proposed to take place in the 100-foot buffer zone of Bordering Vegetated Wetlands. Project location is Northern Avenue, Map Id 25C-12 and 25C-17." The developer behind this project is Douglas Kohl of Kohl Construction.
The Conservation Commission did not approve the proposal. They objected to large-scale disturbance within 35 feet of the wetland around the proposed development. The hearing was continued to January 2009.
