MAY CLARION – DEADLINE FRIDAY 20 APRIL
by Ray Boas
This is your one-week warning that the closing date is on the horizon — Friday, April 20. The May CLARION will go to the printer on Monday the 23rd, and be posted on-line at that time.
This will be a “hot issue” and focus on the current “hot topic” — the request for a special zoning exception to allow a gas station/convenience store on Route 12 at the intersection with South Street. “Hot Issue” because this is not an allowed use on Rural/Agricultural Land, particularly when other sites (as stipulated in Walpole’s Zoning Ordnance) are available. In addition there are other factors that make the siting here inappropriate, and inconsistent with Walpole’s Master Plan.
I am filling May’s pages now with site plans, visuals, and working on many articles so all readers are aware of the issues at hand. The sooner you get your submissions in, the sooner I can place them.
Thank you, yours, RAY – Publisher
