ACUSHNET — The long-running public hearing on a subdivision plan for Deep Brook Estates will continue at 6:45 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Planning Commission meeting.

The public review of the a 32-lot neighborhood began in late June.

At the outset of the public review process, commission members suggested that the approval process was likely to be a lengthy one due to the size and scope of the project. The proposed site off Park Drive is a large parcel owned by John and Michael Koska, accessible via Fairway Drive off Middle Road.

The commission has received a peer-reviewed report on the site and roadway plans from its consulting engineers, but did not discuss the consultant’s findings at its Oct. 19 meeting because of the requested continuance, Planning Committee Chair Marc Cenerizio said.

Copies of the plans are available for viewing at the Planning Commission office during regular business hours.

On Oct. 19, the commission also sat down with property owner Norm Nichols and his consulting engineer for informal discussions of a new proposal for development of a 3.84 acre parcel off Coury Drive, partially located in New Bedford. The road is only accessible from Bartlett Street, just over the city line.

In May, the commission endorsed concept plans for a proposed 10-unit condominium complex for over-55 residents on the property, saying such housing opportunities were much needed in Acushnet. Those plans called for five duplex buildings on the single lot.

Last week, Nichols said those plans have been scrapped, and he was seeking feedback on a potential subdivision of the site to create two single-family house lots of 60,000 square feet each. The subdivision would leave a smaller parcel undeveloped, and he indicated he would likely seek a variance from minimum lot sizes for development at some time in the future.

The landowner said he still plans on extending municipal water and sewer lines to service the site, which has a good-sized pond located at the center of the parcel. A 24-foot private way would provide access to the home sites, and he would not be asking the town to accept it as a public way, he noted.

Nichols suggested that the extension of water and sewer lines to the site would be a benefit to the town, as a number of existing homes on small lots along Coury Drive would be able to tie into the lines in the future.

“I would work with the town on that, if they’re willing to work with me,” Nichols said, noting he has already talked to the DPW about the possible extensions of municipal lines.

The landowner has not yet filed formal plans for the development, preferring to get some feedback from the commission before moving forward. Commission member Rick Ellis said he had no problems with the concept plan, noting, “The commission has always been supportive of development where there is water and sewer available.”

Other commissioners reviewing the draft site plan said they had no objections to the proposed subdivision of the property, so Nichols and his engineer suggested they would move forward with further refinement of the plans.

The commission also continued a public hearing on a request for a special permit for a common drive to serve homes located at 148 Peckham St. until their Nov. 16 meeting. That hearing is scheduled to get underway at 7:15 p.m.
