DISCUSSION: Paul Adams
Citizen Petitions – Zoning ordinance changes
Elderly Housing and Wetlands
Mr. Adams has asked the Board to reconsider placing the Elderly Housing and Wetlands ordinances he has written on the Ballot for vote in March.
The Board was in agreement that although these items are important zoning, proper review by the Board, Central NH Regional Planning Commission (CNHRPC) and the Town Attorney are necessary.
Making corrections, holding public hearings and receiving adequate feedback from the public, CNHRPC and the Town Attorney does not allow the Board to move forward on these items at this time for the March ballot.
The Board feels that it is not fair to the town to present these zoning changes with three weeks time before ballot information is due with no proper review by the Board, CNHRPC or the Town Attorney. Therefore these items will not be on the March 2002 ballot.
Arnold Price has been appointed as an alternate to the Board.
Motion was made to adjourn.
Meeting adjourned at 7:55pm
