CPP 10 Meadowbank Road LLC wants to raise and remodel a home at 10 Meadowbank Road to make it conform to current and future flood elevation standards as required by Federal Emergency Management Agency. The 2,235 square-foot home would increase to 4,409 square feet, according to a planning department staff report. The applicant wants to fill around the home to elevate the first floor. But the town’s engineering division suggested placing the house on piers or creating a crawl space with no fill, a suggestion the homeowner disagrees with.
Not sure how this will affect the streetscape on Meadowbank but the P&Z’s decision may provide insight into how it intends to handle this issue. This is surely only the first of many such applications to come.
