        Map 2, Lot 81, Dover and Bailey Roads
Continued from October 5, 2006

The developer is planning to move the batting cages down further on the property toward the front and proposing a future indoor facility in the back of property. The developer will be going to the Board of Adjustment for a small area to be filled and request a variance to the wetlands buffer for present and future development. Traffic is still an issue and the Board still needs to meet with DOT. The developer stated that he has been in contact with 3 abutters and they seem happier with the new plans. They are applying for a dredge and fill permit for the driveway. Chairman Towle will contact DOT for meeting prior to December 7, 2006 hearing.

Still modifying plans and meeting with State of NH Department Environmental Services and Department of Transportation.

DISCUSSION:     Jay Baas
        Site Review – In Law Apartment
        Map 8, Lot 4, Depot Road

Mr. Baas needs a letter from the Board stating what he needs for a variance. The Board of Adjustment needs specifics dealing with the zoning violations.

The Board will hold a work session on this, Jay wants to keep apartment separate from house. Mr. Baas states that the neighbors do not have a problem with him doing this. Mr. Baas would like to attend the work session. The secretary will call when date and time is set.

DISCUSSION:     Ann Fornier
        Map 2, Lot 24, Horse Corner Road

Ms. Fornier owns 37 acres, her home and a trailer sit on the parcel with 350 feet of frontage, as the property sits now it is a substandard lot. Ms. Fornier would like to subdivide off a parcel for the trailer. The Board would need to deny the subdivision so Ms. Fornier can go to the Board of Adjustment and request an area variance to create a new lot for the trailer.

Letter denying the subdivision with the following areas of concerns: Setbacks of septic systems from lot lines and well radius.

DISCUSSION:     Martin & Pamela Smith
        Addition – Commercial Zone      
        Map 3, Lot 59, Dover Road

Mr. & Mrs. Smith would like to bring their Consignment shop from Epsom to this property. The main building has 3 apartments and lower building has been used for display and sales, both building are on the same parcel of land.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith would like to put an addition onto the lower building to increase the foot print. A concern of the Board is lot line setbacks for the addition. The property has 248 feet of frontage on Route 4 and 4.4 acres.

Change of use would need a new site review suggested multi-use proposal. It might be possible to find plan from property next door and have surveyor work from that. They will call when ready to continue.


Will hold a working meeting on November 30, 6:30pm for Baas project as well as calendar for submission dates.

January 16, 2007 for training session on policies and procedures.

Motion was made to adjourn.

        Brehm/DeBold    (Passed)

Meeting adjourned at 10:20pm.
