COVID by the Numbers—January 17 Edition

We’re #1!

Unfortunately, being #1 is not always a Good Thing.  Until very recently, Cheshire County had a very low rate of COVID infection as expressed as a rate of cases per 100,000 population.  As of January 1, the rate per 100,000 in Cheshire County was 22.5, third lowest in the state.  As of today, just 17 days later, it is 64.0, the highest in the state.  Currently, the state average is 53.3.

Here in Walpole, we started 2021 with 6 active cases in town, and a cumulative total of 37 cases in Walpole since the start of the pandemic.  On January 17, there are 21 currently active cases in town, and the cumulative total has rocketed up to 84.  The total number of cases in Walpole has more than doubled in 17 days, with 47 new cases in town since the beginning of the year.  Nearly 56% of the total cases in Walpole have been reported in the last 17 days.  So what happened?  Well, presumably, Christmas happened, and family gatherings.  The good news?  There is some—the 21 currently active cases is actually down from a high of 30 cases on January 12.  

Countywide, we went from 142 active cases on January 1 to 425 active cases on January 17.  The cumulative total of Cheshire County cases was 1,263 at the beginning of the year; now the cumulative total is 1,910.  Nearly 34% of the total cases in Cheshire County have been reported since the beginning of he year.

Statewide, the numbers are not going up as fast as they are in Walpole or in Cheshire County.  The active cases rose from 5.919 to 6,387.  The total number of cases statewide went from 44,028 to 56,864.  Just over 22% of the statewide cases have been reported since the beginning of the year.  The statewide hospitalization numbers are actually coming down.  There were 317in hospital on January 1, and after reaching an all-time  high of 335 on January 2, we are back down to 243 as January 17.  

The number of lives lost to COVID in New Hampshire went from 759 to 933, so over 18% of the total deaths statewide have come in the last 17 days.  2souls have just left us from Cheshire County.

There is hope on the horizon, with vaccines scheduled to become available to new groups of people.  However, as we await the start of phase 1-b, remember that realistically, there will still be a long wait for some of those newly eligible.  The NH Department of Health and Human Services estimates that there are 300,000 people in phase 1-b.  As of the Thursday press conference, we were told that NH was receiving an average of 17,500 doses of vaccine each week.  With each person needing two doses, at this rate it is going to take a long time to vaccinate all those eligible who want to receive the vaccine.  My post of January 14 outlines what we know as of now about the rollout of phase 1-b.

So please keep on taking good care of yourselves.  Redouble your efforts.  Wear your masks.  Keep your distance.  Wash your hands.  Avoid large groups.  Avoid close contact in small groups of those not in your household.  Be careful out there, now more than ever.

Keep well.

Walpole Recreation Program Cancellation

I received this news from Kraig Harlow today. Another thing our community is missing out on until we get this COVID-19 under control. – Lil

We are saddened to announce that Winter Basketball has been cancelled due to COVID-19. With recent spikes in our community and surrounding areas the past couple weeks, we feel that the health and safety of our residents come first.


We are hoping this spring to possibly offer our youth clinics if COVID-19 cases decrease. We thank you for understanding this matter.

Planning Board Meeting Minutes – 1/12/21

Roll Call: All Planning Board members and invitees are in separate locations. This meeting is being recorded. WPB Chair Jeff Miller called a voice roll call of the Planning Board members who were present. Those responding as present were Vice-Chair Dennis Miller, Clerk Jason Perron, Zoom Host Jeff Harrington, Jeff Colley, Joanna Andros and Select Board Representative Steve Dalessio. 

Recording: Secretary Marilou Blaine. These minutes are unapproved and will be reviewed at the February 2021 meeting for corrections, additions and/or omissions.

Meeting coming to order: Mr. Miller called the meeting to order at at 7 pm.

Minutes: Mr Marcom made a motion to approve the November and December minutes as presented. Mr. Colley seconded the motion and the motion passed unanimously by a voice vote of each Board member.

Public Hearing No. 1. 

Invitees and people present at the meeting for the Landry subdivision meeting: Abutters: Cynthia Reeves and Ray Ruseckas, Todd Neilsen, Bronia and Mark Jenson. Wentworth Road homeowners: Tesse Gohl and Hope Higbie.

Subdivision: Jay Landry of Tilton, NH two lots into four lots, Map 17, Lots 5 and 5-1, land between Old Keene Rd. and Wentworth Rd. Land surveyor Joe DiBernardo represented Mr. Landry. Mr. DiBernardo said the total acreage of the parcel is 11.2 acres.

The size of the of the new lots would be:

​ Lot 5.1 – 2.19 acres with 200 feet road frontage on Wentworth Road; 

​ Lot 5-2 – 1.67 acres with 200 feet road frontage on Wentworth Road; 

​ Lot 5-3 – 1.15 acres with 200 feet road frontage on Wentworth Road;

​ Lot 5-4 – 6.22 acres with 203.61 feet road frontage on Old Keene Road and Wentworth Road.​ 48.5 feet road frontage on Wentworth Road.

The property is located in the Residential A zoning district with the minimum lot size of 40,00 thousand square feet, just shy of 1 acre, minimum 200 feet road frontage and minimum setback of 65 feet from the center of the road. Side and rear setbacks are 20 feet. All these lots meet the zoning dimensional requirements.

The largest lot (5-4) has at least 200 feet of frontage on Old Keene Road but also has frontage of 48.5 feet on  Wentworth Road and that is the proposed access to that lot. In addition, Mr. DiBernardo said, Sharon Monaghan delineated the wetlands and Forest Designs is taking care of state permitting of the three lots that are less than five acres in size.

Has state given you approval or not? Mr. Miller asked. Mr. DiBernardo said no that they were waiting for approval. 

Abutter Todd Neilsen asked Mr. DiBernardo to explain the circles and boxes on each of the surveyor’s map. Mr. DiBernardo said the 75-foot circles represent the well area and the boxes represent the septic area. This is all for state permitting, which requires that there be 75 feet from the well to the septic area and the area for the leach field.

Mr. Neilsen asked Mr. DiBernardo if he was aware of previous incidents where residents have not been getting enough water. Have you done on work on that? Neilsen asked. Mr. DiBernardo said he hasn’t done any work on that. Are you aware that people on Wentworth Road are having problems getting enough water from their wells? Mr. Neilsen asked. Mr. DiBernardo said he was made aware of that tonight and that tonight he is not proposing to develop the property only to divide the property. Mr. Neilsen added and “therefore to sell these lots.” Mr. DiBernardo said yes.

Mr. Neilsen said his property is next to lot 5-1, which is wooded. He asked if there were any regulations about the amount of trees that could be cut. Mr. Miller said no and Mr. DiBernardo said that he was not aware of any. Mr. Neilsen asked why his driveway was not shown on the plat because his neighbor’s driveways were. Mr. DiBernardo said Mr. Neilsen’s driveway was at the northeast corner of Lot 5-1. 

Cynthia Reeves said her concerns were about water usage as well as water runoff. She sent a PDF to Host Jeff Harrison outlining some of her questions. Four areas on her property have to do with water, she said. All around this area on the hillside there are an extraordinary amount of spring activity, a lot of surface water and then there’s pitch to the hillside that means water collects in sheets down the hillside. They personally have done a lot to mitigate the problem, she said. 

She mentioned four water features on their property including both a stream on the northern and on the southern boundaries; a spring box that intersected the northern boundary; and a dug well at the top on the southern boundary. 

There are marshy areas that abut the Landry property and there is a concern about usage if the Landry lots are developed, Ms. Reeves said. There have been see-saw weather conditions this year. This winter there was a lot of water around Christmas and this summer we had four or five months of drought. Ms. Reeves presented several photos that illustrated her points. One shows a spring box at top of the property. That water comes down through pipes and collects in a cistern in their basement. The water in the cistern is about 4 or 5 feet deep and runs year-round except during the drought when, for the first time in 18 years, it went down to almost nothing. It is pure water, which they use for drinking. 

Of primary concern for Ms. Reeves is preserving the water quality in the natural springs located at the top of their property on the eastern boundary. The Spring House is marked on the plan and this water feeds the cistern in the main house. How close can any new structure/leach field come to an active spring? she asked.  Another photo showed the cistern in the basement.

How close are property lines next to the spring? Ms. Reeves asked. What will be the impact on aquifers? In severe weather, what happens when the land abutting our property has pavement, dug foundations, etc? It will compound the intensity and volume of water coming off the hillside, she said.

On both the northern and southern borders there are streams that are active year-round, Ms. Reeves said. The southern stream isn’t marked on the plat that was presented. One photo is of a dug well at the top of the property’s southeast border, which originally fed the main house with water.

Other photos showed what happens when there is runoff in severe weather and during the more usual winter runoff. Water runoff mitigation issues have been: the driveway has been regraded several time due to water runoff in severe weather, which is to some degree mitigated by the streams on the southern and northern boundaries. Given the strength of some storms, the entire hillside is overwhelmed with water, and effects are shown in several photos. One shows a trench dug by the Town of Walpole road crew along the western boundary along Old Keene Road in an effort to redirect water coming off the hill, including a new culvert under Old Keene Road, which was put in this summer. 

Ms. Reeves said water should be considered as part of this subdivision. It’s so bad sometimes it runs down Hillside Acres. Its impact directly bears consideration. It underscores what Mr. Neilsen said before about management of storm water that is to going to affect all the abutting properties.

The drought this summer was serious. A neighbor had to dig a new well. Friends up on Wentworth Road ran out of water. Ms. Reeves said she is wondering if is it viable to reasonably think we can continue to build more houses without looking at some of these issues. Also, perhaps the town water can be continued to some of these newly constructed homes. 

My concerns are such, Ms. Reeve said, that she thinks an environmental impact study should be done.

Mr. Teese Gohl, whose home at 31 Wentworth Road, is the last one on that road to have town water. Mr. Gohl said that after talking to the head of the water department that he believes that town water is already stretched to the limit. He’s also like something done about the traffic on that Wentworth Road, although he said because of Covid, there are more people and families walking.

Hope Higbie at 105 Wentworth Road expressed the same concerns about water and fears having to lose access to her water in the future.

Mr. Neilsen said he was new to this process of public hearings. What powers do we, as abutters, have? Mr. Miller said basically you have the power to object, appeal the decision in superior court. The Planning Board basically has to make sure all the boundaries, size of lot, setbacks and zoning requirements are followed. 

Mr. Miller said that when a subdivision of about 8 to 10 homes was planned on land in the Wentworth and Hooper Road several years ago, there were the same concerns about water. Mr. Miller suggested the Board take a second look at that independent study of the impact on water supply on that area.

Ms. Andros said there are already two or three more driveways off of Wentworth Road and more building.

Mark Jenson agreed with Ms. Reeves about runoff. He said that water comes down the road, down through a neighbor’s property and sheets of water go through his property and settles. He said that right now you could skate on a pond at the bottom of the field. He added that he too has had water issues in the past.

Ms. Reeves said you have all these homeowners who have had periods of problems with water. She asked about building homes when potential homeowners may have the a potential problem with water. It is not in the spirit of Walpole of shared good will among neighbors. All the legal requirements may be met but are potential buyers going to be told about the existing problems with water.

There should be an environmental impact study with a focus on water and if this moves forward, what happens if new homeowner runs out of water their first year?

Mr. Miller said regarding this subdivision the Board needs to do more homework on this and look at the conditions discussed.

Ms. Andros said that the Town of Walpole has had to do a lot of remediation on Old Keene and Wentworth Road. It is very costly.

Mr. Miller said the Board does not have to make a decision tonight and he proposed that the Board find the study of the area of Wentworth and Hooper Roads about runoff and look at that. He asked the secretary to look in the files for the study and the minutes.

Mr. Marcom agreed that we have to learn more about the situation and runoff and he said he’d like to meet with Mike Rau, Walpole’s road agent, and discuss these issues as well as discuss storm water.

Mr. Miller said this has been going on a long time, it’s nothing new. This public hearing will continue to be on the agenda in February. 

Public Hearing No. 2:

Site Plan: Bed and Breakfast at Watkins Tavern, owner Fred Dill (Walpole D and D LLC), 116 Prospect Hill Road, Map 8, Lot 61-1, Residential A. Cindy Westover represented Fred Dill. Prospective owners are Eric Brandolini and CJ Letterman. They, as well as Doreen Brandolini were on the audio portion of Zoom.

Ms. Westover stated the Tavern property is a little over 8 acres and subdivided from the golf course. A hand-drawn map showed the Tavern in yellow and parking area in pink  as well as a barn and pro shop that are part of the golf club operation. The new owners have applied for a LLC and the place will be called Watkins Hill Tavern and Inn.

The second and first floor layouts are the same as now. On the second floor a half bath in room No. 2 will become a three-quarter bathroom. The pink area is where they are going to live. The first floor will remain as is with the exception of installing a bar in the room next to the kitchen that will also serve the adjoining porch. The owners need to get a liquor license from the state. There is already a handicap bathroom on the first floor and an ADA approved ramp. The porch will remain as is.

Ms. Westover said there is no change in use. As of last week all of the rooms were rented and have been over the last couple of years.

Mr. Dalessio said three things:

​ Mr. Dill had a fire and safety engineer install certain features, which should remain:

​When the kitchen opens there must be grease separation traps in all of the three sinks and ​dishwasher.

​The new owners should retain all the ADA items including the ramp. 

The new owners, who are on their way to New Hampshire from Utah, were in a hotel in Iowa. One of the owner said that he was excited that they would be stewards of a historic property and grateful to have the opportunity to make it a community space. The kitchen wouldn’t be open right away for cooked food, but sufficient grub will be available for food and drink for golfers. First they are planning on renting out four room to guests.

When there were no more questions from the public or Board, Mr. Miller closed the hearing. Mr. Marcom made a motion to approve the bed and breakfast proposal on the condition that the Board gets all the information from Mark Houghton regarding fire and safety. Mr. Perron seconded the motion and with a roll call of the Board, each Board member approved the motion.

Request for a Public Hearing for a site plan.

Walpole Creamery532 Main Street LLC, owner Robert Kasper, Map 12, Lot 14, commercial district.

Mr. Kasper said that Scully Architects are doing the drawings, a Boston company is doing the technical work, Mark Houghton plumbing and heating and Bergeron Construction.

Three 40-foot trailers that are behind the building will be removed. One of the trailers is a freezer. The wash and dry is no longer there. The interior will be remodeled. The freezer storage area will be in that space on the west wall. There is also storage in the rest of the building  and additional storage space will be on the north side of the building.

The production area will be in the middle of the building. A loading dock will be added off the back of the building. That will mean that pallets of ice cream can be loaded directly onto a truck. It requires that a door be removed and a garage-size door added.

There will be an addition to the north side as well as installing a holding tank for milk on the east side connected to a storage area in front of the holding tank. The ice cream parlor remains where it is now. 

The new plant will produce two to three times as much as it does now. Sales have gone through the roof with this pandemic, Mr. Kasper said. Everyone is eating pizza and ice cream.

Mr. Marcom made a motion to have a public hearing for the Creamery next month. Mr. Perron seconded the motion and the motion passed unanimously by individual roll call vote. 

Finishing up the meeting: Mr. Miller said the water study of the Hooper Road property should help us. It includes road drainage and runoff. Driveways have to be permitted.

Mr Dalessio said that it appears now that the subdivision is legal. 

Mr. Miller read from Site Plan Regulations G. Storm Water management and erosion control. That sections says:​ G. Storm Water Management and Erosion Control:

​The applicant shall submit a storm water management and erosion control plan ​when one or more of the following conditions are proposed: – A cumulative disturbed ​area exceeding 20,000 square feet. ​                        Construction of a street or road.  – The disturbance of critical areas- such as steep slopes, wetlands, floodplains. ​ – Standard agricultural and silvicultural practices are exempt from these provisions ​                       – All storm water management and erosion control measures in the plan shall adhere to ​the “Erosion and Sediment Control Design Handbook for Developing Areas of New Hampshire”, published by the Rockingham County Conservation District, and the“Model Storm Water ​Management and Erosion Control Regulation”, published by the NH Association of Conservation Districts, Water Quality Committee. 

​- The applicant shall bear final responsibility for the installation, construction, and  disposition of all storm water and erosion control measures required by the Planning  Board. Site development shall not begin before the plan is approved. 

Mr. Miller said we owe it to the abutters to see what can be done. He planned to make a few phone calls.

Mr. Marcom said the Planning Board handbook on page subdivisions, page 71, says that in making a decision on subdivisions , the Planning Board had to look at the full development of the parcel.

Ms. Andros made a motion to adjourn. Mr. Perron seconded the motion and roll call of the board showed that they unanimously agreed.

Respectfully submitted,

Marilou Blaine

Up-date from Lucy – 1/15/21

Update—January 15, 2021

I just heard from a Walpole resident who followed the procedure set out below and contacted a local primary care provider. The resident reports that the primary care provider had not been given any guidance or instruction about how they should interact with the registration process. The resident was concerned that care providers may be overwhelmed with calls that they cannot yet process.

As stated below, phase 1-b will not begin until January 26, and the registration process for phase 1-b will not begin until January 22, so the providers will not be able to interact with it until at least that date, and then only if all goes according to plan.  As of right now, the link only allows access by persons listed in phase 1-a: first responders, high-risk health care providers, and residential facility residents.

I have no way of knowing when care providers will get this information, and would never tell anyone how or when to contact their providers in any case.  But be aware, that, as of right now, the providers have not been given the specifics of how the plan outlined below is to be implemented.  

More news when I hear it.

Keep well,

Lucy

NH COVID-19 Vaccination Plan for Those Aged 65 and Older, and Others

Governor’s Press Conference January 14, 2021

At his press conference today, Governor Sununu described the rollout of the next phase of COVID-19 vaccines.  Please be aware that this is my best effort at notetaking—I have not had materials for review, so there may be inaccuracies.  It is also clear that there will be more information coming out as time goes on.

Phase 1-b  has been redefined, and will start on January 26.  Phase 1-b now includes the following groups:

  • All persons 65 or older (This is a change from the earlier 75 or older.)
  • Persons who are medically vulnerable, including parents of children under 16 who are medically vulnerable.  (Chilldren under 16 currently cannot get vaccine.) 
  • Persons living in institutions for those with developmental disabilities
  • Corrections officers

How it will work.  There will be a web site to register for vaccination.  The site is www.vaccines.nh.gov .  

The site will go live on January 22 for persons 65 or older. Vaccination appointments will start January 26.

Here is what you do:

  • If you are over 65, you visit the web site and register as being 65 or older, and wanting to be vaccinated.
  • When your turn comes, you will receive an email from the web site with a link for you to select a vaccination location and tie that works for you.
  • Visit that link and pick your location and time
  • Turn up for your vaccination with proof of your birth date showing that you are 65 or over.
  • If you are under 65 and medically fragileor are the parent of a medically fragile child under 16, contact your primary care provider and if you have 2 of the medical conditions that are identified , your primary care provider will notify the registration site.  The site will send you and email to register for a locations and time, and you can proceed as above. 
  • If you do not have internet access, contact 211 to get help registering.
  • If you have had COVID-19, if you are past the infectious stage, you may get the vaccine if you are in a qualified group, unless you received monoclonal antibody therapy, in which case you must wait 90 days before being vaccinated.

There are still a lot of unanswered questions.  

First of all, NH is currently getting about 17,000 doses of vaccine per week.  It is going to take a lot of time to get to everyone.  

Second, the Governor did not say, and no one at the press conference asked, how they are going to manage appointments for the second dose of vaccine.  I have heard that some people who have received a first shot are currently having difficulty getting an appointment for a second shot.  I will try to find out how that is being managed, but I have no more information about how that will take place.

More information when I find it out.  In the meantime, and even after you have been vaccinated, wear your mask, keep your distance, wash your hands, and keep well.
