Pursuant to RSA 673:11, Vice Chair Jameson appointed Thomas Houle as a voting member for the purposes of this meeting in the absence of Kevin Mara.
The minutes of August 9, 2012 were reviewed; a motion was made by Mr. Mayville and seconded by Mr. Jordan to approve the minutes as written. Motion passes.
Conceptual Review: Subdivision, Scott & Wayne Bartlett, Map 8 Lot 6, Depot Road, Chichester/Epsom
Scott Bartlett was present to speak on the merits of the proposal.
Mr. Bartlett presented the Board with a concept drawing for the subdivision of his land located in each of Chichester and Epsom. As the parcel is located in both towns, each Town shall have to individually give approval to the application. The purpose of the proposal is to subdivide the current 22.5 acres into 3 lots. That parcel solely located with the Town of Chichester is to be conforming to Chichester’s zoning. Mr. Bartlett is required to seek a variance in Epsom for the remaining lots as they are not conforming within that town. Mr. Bartlett will submit applications to both towns for the subdivision once a variance has been granted by Epsom.
Conceptual Review: Lot Line Adjustment, Warren, Baum, Gravelle, Map 9 Lots 129, 130, and 131, Webster Mills Road
Kent Brown, surveyor, was present to speak on the merits of the proposal.
The purpose of the proposal is to add small amounts of land to Lots 130 and 131 from the larger (71.5ac) parcel. This is to accommodate some buildings that are on the larger parcel. Both smaller lots are nonconforming to current zoning and the addition of the proposed acreage does not make them conforming. After polling the Board, it was determined that legal counsel should be sought to see if the Board can grant approval to the non-conforming lots. Mr. Brown was briefed on the remainder of the process, and will be advised of the attorney’s opinion as soon as possible.
The Board reviewed a draft signage ordinance and all members were requested to review it thoroughly over the course of the next month for future discussion.
The Board also got an update on the construction projects ongoing at Carpenter Park.
Being no further business, a motion was made by Mr. Jameson and seconded by Mr. Mayville to adjourn the meeting at 7:48pm. Motion passes.
Respectfully submitted, Not Approved until signed.
Jamie a Pike, Secretary Thomas Jameson, Vice Chairman
