Jeff Miller, Chairman of the Walpole Planning Board, has confirmed to me that the Public Hearing for the Great River Co-Op has been moved to May per the Co-Op’s request.
The request for a Public Hearing by D&C Transportation, Orleans, Vt. Map 10, Lot 2, Rural/Ag district to construct a gas station/convenience store for a recommendation to the ZBA for a Special Exception remains on the agenda. Mr. Miller kindly provided the following, “When we have an applicant come to the board for a preliminary consultation or to submit an application for a public hearing the comments are usually between the applicant and the Board. [We] will allow some questions from the public but generally the public comments will come from the public hearing.”
Myra Mansouri, Chair of Walpole’s Zoning Board, has not yet replied to the CLARION’s two requests for information on procedures for public comment.
It appears that the Public Hearings for both the proposed Gas Station at the junction of South Street and Route 12, and the Co-Op, both to be constructed on Rural/Ag land, will be in May.
However, if you are interested in learning what D&C Transportation has to say at both the Planning and Zoning Board meetings in April, even if you cannot say anything, you are strongly encouraged to attend on April 10 and 18 to show your interest.
Please circulate this post, and encourage people to subscribe to CLARION posts for updates on these important matters. Thank you, RAY
