SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | NOVEMBER 7-13, 2018 SMITHFIELD 13 from 34 feet to 24 feet wide, and does not propose sidewalks. Simonelli said he wants to get ahead of "propaganda" and set the record straight about the Sand Trace development. He said the units are not rentals, but will be family-owned condos. "I see no reason to deny it," Phillips said. Phillips said he suggests additional traffic studies to look at the intersec- tion of Log Road and Pleasant View Avenue, and said the intersection may warrant a traffic signal. The Planning Board approved hir- ing an independent traffic engineer to review the applicant's traffic study at an Oct. 18 meeting. Michael Iannotti, 97 Swan Road, which abuts the rear of the Sand Trace development, said turning left onto Pleasant View off Log Road is already difficult at peak traffic hours, and may cause safety issues for driv- ers. "We're the traffic experts because we live in the area," Iannotti said. In total, the Sand Trace develop- ment will include 78 duplex and triplex buildings while preserving 60 percent of the land in conservation easements. To conform with the town's devel- opment limit to one percent of the town's housing stock per year, which is approximately 79 units according to Phillips, the Sand Trace comprehen- sive permit plan proposes to be built in three 60-unit phases each year. The Planning Board will hold a hearing on the Sand Trace develop- ment at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15 at Town Hall, 64 Farnum Pike. The SAND TRACE DEVELOPMENT will feature family-owned two-bedroom duplex- es and triplexes such as the one seen here.
