Others say the current plan is different that what was originally presented.

Conservation Commission members say they heard details of the plan earlier this year and are supposed to make decisions based on any wetland impact or other environmental issues associated with the site location and project.

Early details of the plan were that only empty, clean Dumpsters would be allowed on the site.

In the future, Ives said, her board would be more aware of concerns attached to a proposed plan.

“This may have opened our eyes wide,” she said.
