Present: Chair Jeff Miller, Vice-Chair Dennis Marcom, Clerk Jason Perron, Select Board Representative Steve Dalessio, Jeff Harrington, Joanna Andros, Trevor MacLachlan.
Discussion: Lot size in rural/agricultural district.
This discussion was prompted by Cliff Peters who lives on County Road. He was an abutter at a public hearing on a subdivision and after the meeting Mr. Peters wrote the Planning Board a letter. Mr. Peters was invited to speak at the meeting but declined because he wasn’t feeling well.
Rural/agricultural district zoning in Walpole requires the following:
1. Lot Area. The lot area in the Rural/Agricultural District shall not be less than 40,000 square feet for each dwelling unit and every lot shall have a minimum frontage of 200 feet.
2. Yard Requirements. No building or other structure shall be erected closer than sixty-five (65) feet to the center line of the abutting right-of-way nor closer than twenty feet (20) to any side or rear property line.
After discussing possible lot sizes, the Planning Board will have a meeting in December or January to discuss the topic with property owners in this district to get their input, ideas and opinions.
The meeting adjourned at 8 pm.
