Seamus Moran, PE with Indigo Land Design presented the proposal on behalf of the applicants,  John and Daryl Hornby.   He noted the commission had visited the site.  He provided the commission with revised plans showing the minor revisions.  Moran stated they are raising the patio slightly to get the runoff to come around the patio rather than directly over it so that grading has been added to the plan.  He noted it is currently a 4 bedroom year round home with a front walkway, 18 x 33 in ground pool on the south side and a wood deck to the rear.  He stated the proposal includes replacing  the pool with a much smaller saltwater pool approximately  8 x 16.  He also noted the deck in the rear of the house will be removed and replaced with an addition.  He noted the deck was 44 ft. from the wetland and the addition is 45 ft.
