The Planning and Zoning Commission approved the release of a $40,000 bond for the upkeep of a dam at Taylor’s Pond, off of Limestone Road, at its May 22 meeting.
The bond was originally posted in 1986 as part of an agreement to subdivide the roughly 29-acre parcel of land, Planning and Zoning Director Richard Baldelli explained at the meeting. Under the terms of the subdivision, most of the land would go to the town, where it would be preserved as open space. As a condition for the approval, the dam that sits on the property was to be maintained and in good condition when the land was eventually turned over to the town. That didn’t happen, so the bond was put up instead.
