After more than six years, Derry subdivision is official
DERRY - A three-lot subdivision on Hampstead and Olesen roads that was approved in 2006 is finally official.
Tim Peloquin of Promised Land Survey told the conservation commission that the subdivision will have minimal wetlands impact.
"Barbara Schibbelhute lives on the property, which is an older house on the corner of Olesen Road and Hampstead Road," said Peloquin. "It sits pretty close to the road and the site has six acres of land, and there is frontage on Hampstead Road and Olesen Road. We were able to prove back in 2006 that it was three lots."
The project was approved and all the conditions met in 2006, but Peloquin said Schibbelhute did not want to sign off on the plans at the time because she did not want the additional tax bills.
"Now she has to do what she has to do, and she has to look at dividing this land," he said.
Schibbelhute has signed a purchase and sale agreement with R.J. Moreau Communities, which worked on the Manchester episode of the popular "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" television series.
"They do real nice work and they are looking at putting up two homes, one on each side of Mrs. Schibbelhute," Peloquin said. The homes will have identical plans, with one facing Hampstead Road and one facing Olesen Road.
The only wetlands impact is on a small patch of driveway on Olesen Road, where a driveway and culvert were constructed but no pavement was put down, according to Peloquin.
"There are 300-square-feet of small, wooded wetland that is traversed across the property as it comes down Olesen Road," he said. "It is a minor wetland that might eventually feed into Bliss Farm, which is a bigger wetland."
Peloquin said there are no changes to the original plans from 2006.
"We have not done a thing since then," he said. "For all intents and purposes, they are perfect."
