The events would end at 10:30pm, there would be no fireworks and the other homes on the property would not be rented for the events.

Noise and music was addressed as the primary issue from the complaints. It was suggested by the Board to turn the speakers and stage away from the river. Only professional fireworks will be conducted and will end at 10:30. The owner would like to increase the guest limit to 200 and have the end time extended to 11:00. The applicant will need to return before the Planning Board for a Site Plan modification.

Parcel A with the existing house would be 2.001 acres and Parcel B would be 3.211 acres. The applicant will return with a completed application and the required information added to the map.
