A copy of a letter dated February 26, 1998 from Applicants, Elizabeth Roach and Stephen Williams was given out to each member.  The Chairman informed the Members that the revised Terms and Conditions were not available for this meeting, as the Development Officer is awaiting the required information from the Planning Department in Fredericton.
A discussion was then held in Closed Session.  It was the consensus of the Committee that the submission received from the Applicants was not a Landscaping Plot Plan as requested in a motion made at the February 16th P.A.C. meeting.
Mr. Williams was present for the Open Session at 8:00 p.m., and was informed once again of the Committee’s previous request for a Landscaping Plot Plan.  Mr. Williams informed the Committee that he will indeed provide  same.  The Chairman apologized to Mr. Williams for another two week delay, however, he stated to Mr. Williams that the more detailed information  available, the quicker this matter can be settled.
It was moved by Phillip Kelly that P.A.C. table this item to the next meeting, pending receipt of the Landscaping Plot Plan as discussed, and supporting documentation from the Development Officer.
Motion seconded by Deputy Mayor Black.  Carried.
Mr. Williams will be invited back to the March 16, 1998 meeting when the matter will once again be addressed.

A copy of a fax sent to the Development Officer from Paul Hobart of Keel Construction Ltd. dated March 2, 1998 was hand delivered to the Committee Members during the Closed Session of the meeting.   Following a review of the above mentioned submission, it was the consensus of the Committee that a Topographical Map requested from the Applicants in a motion made at the February 16th P.A.C. meeting is required, prior to a decision being made.  Paul and Peter Hobart of Keel Construction Ltd. were not present at 8:00 p.m. for discussion during the Open Session of the meeting.
It was moved by James Evans to table this Application until P.A.C. is in receipt of a revised Rehabilitation Plan, and a dated aerial photograph, as per the submission of Keel Construction Ltd. dated March 2, 1998.  Also,  request from Keel Construction Ltd. a Certificate from an appropriate expert, indicating information previously requested in a motion by M.
