AYER — Resident Jessica Gugino and contractor Robert Margolias plan to remove and rebuild Gugino’s single-family home at eight Mountain View Avenue.

But because the building is roughly 50 feet from Sandy Pond, Margolias told the commission during its Jan. 11 meeting that the silt fence and hay bail line will be placed 25 feet from the building because it’s the closest feasible location.

“We’re trying to bring it into compliance with zoning bylaws,” said Margolias. The building will be in the same footprint, she said, but the orientation of the building will change.

Margolias plans to move debris to another parcel of property he owns prior to its permanent disposal, and no soil piles will be left near the pond that may result from any excavation.

“I don’t really see space to store it on site,” said Margolias.

The commission doesn’t like to see large, exposed piles of dirt, said commission Chairman William Daniels, so removing it would be best.

The commission scheduled a site walk for Jan. 13 at 9 a.m. — Richard Breyer
