NORWAY — A landowner on Sodom Road will appear before the Planning Board on Oct. 11 to deal with an illegal subdivision, Code Enforcement Officer Scott Tabb said.

Tabb told the board at its Sept. 27 meeting that he received a phone call from a man asking about a property for sale on Sodom Road and whether he would be able to build on it.

“I did my homework on (the property) and found out that we have an illegal subdivision there,” Tabb said.

The land was purchased in 2001 by Herbert Foster, who sold a piece of it in 2004, the code officer said. “In March 2014, he sold a portion, and in May 2016, he sold yet another portion. Therefore, we have three divisions of that land, making it a subdivision.”

Planning Board member Michael Quinn asked Tabb if any of the people who bought lots were members of Foster’s family, because they would be exempt from subdivision rules.

Tabb said none of them were. He said he spoke with Foster, “who is not a happy camper right now.”

Foster will attend the board meeting.
