Zoning Board Meeting Minutes – 2/19/20

Present: Board Members: Chair Jan Galloway Leclerc, Vice-Chair Myra Mansouri, Clerk Judy Trow, Tom Murray, Pauline Barnes. Alternates: Ernie Vose. Absent: Bob Anderson, Don Sellarole.

Recording: Marilou Blaine. These minutes are unapproved and will be reviewed at the regular March 2020 meeting for corrections, additions and/or omissions.

Roll Call: Ms. Leclerc called the meeting to order a couple of minutes before 7 pm. A full Board was present so an alternate was not needed to fill in.

Minutes:  There was one correction: remove the words “come to,” page 2, paragraph 5. Ms. Trow made a motion to approve the minutes as amended. Ms. Mansouri seconded the motion. The Board approved the motion.

Signage: Edward Jones, 8 Westminster Street. Postponed until next month.

Old Business:

Public Hearing:

Variance: Marcus Lovell Smith, Boggy Meadow Farms, 13 Boggy Meadow Lane, Tax Map 7, Lot 1, rural/ag district wants to put a mobile home in the barnyard area of the farm. He is hoping to start milking cows again (he has 250 new heifers) and the mobile home is for two employees to be near the cows 24 hours a day. Article VIII, Section B.

Mr. Smith explained his proposal. He said he wanted permission to place a mobile home into the main part of the barnyard at Boggy Meadow Farm so there would be 24-hour-a-day supervision for the cows, which is needed to resume a dairy operation. Currently the milking parlor needs refitting and the hope is that once that is done, the dairy operation will be up and running, he said. The accommodations that we used before don’t have a direct line of sight to the dairy barn. The mobile home will be “invisible” or hidden from the road and any neighbors. Without the mobile home, there would be no dairy operation, he said. It is absolutely crucial to have the mobile home to accommodate 24-hour-labor.

Mr. Smith read the answers to the five conditions for a variance and after he was finished reading all five conditions, the Board discussed each one and then voted on the variance.

Mr. Smith wrote “the variance is requested to erect a temporary mobile home to accommodate farm workers, and will be removed if there are no active dairy operations.”

1. The proposed use would not diminish surrounding property values because:

Site is not visible from surrounding properties.

2. Granting the variance would be of benefit to the public interest.

On-site accommodation is necessary for a dairy operation.

3. Denial of the variance would result in unnecessary hardship to the owner because of the following special circumstances of the property that distinguish it from other properties similarly zoned because:

Accommodation necessary to house farm workers.

4. Granting the variance would do substantial justice because:

It would enable the dairy operation. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to operate a dairy farm.

5. The proposed use would not be contrary to the spirit of the ordinance because:

As set out in the ordinance, “the purpose for establishing a rural/agricultural district is to provide ample areas for pursuit of agriculture including but not limited to dairy farming, poultry raising and timber harvest”, and this accommodation will enable the dairy operation. Furthermore, the use would fall into the category “usual and ordinary farming activities.”

Ms. Mansouri asked what his statement that “you may or may not start a dairy operation” meant. Mr. Smith said there are a bunch of conditions. One is 24-hour supervision, but also the milking parlor has to be restored, which is costly. If these condition don’t work out, there would be no need for a mobile home. She then asked about the two farmhouses on the property and where the septic would be? Mr. Smith said he doesn’t know yet if he can hook to an existing septic system or has to put in a new one. He’s waiting to see if a new system is needed and if it were, he would put in a new one. Ms. Leclerc said septic systems are part of the building permit process and must satisfy State requirements. A copy of State approved design must accompany the building application.

Mr. Vose asked if the dairy operation ceased, would the mobile home be removed? Mr. Smith said yes. Me. Vose then said that the ordinance requires that a mobile home be placed on a permanent foundation. Discussion followed on this topic. Ms. Leclerc said the requirement could be waived. What would constitute a temporary foundation? Suggestions were: a slab, a cement block foundation, cement blocks where needed as a foundation, but not the wheels of the mobile home. All would need  some kind of skirt or covering to go around the bottom of the mobile home.

Comments from the Board to Mr. Smith’s answers to the variance conditions:

1. Ms. Trow said the mobile home is surrounded by farmland and only visible when you’re on the property.

2. Ms. Barnes said the state of New Hampshire takes a very positive view of farming and Walpole has been known for its dairy farms, so I suggest that would be in the public interest. RSA 617:1 says agricultural activities are a beneficial feature of the New Hampshire landscape and should not be unreasonably limited by a municipal zoning power.

​​3. Ms. Barnes said denial would make the need for employees for a 24-hour watch over the cows makes it different from other properties.

4. Ms. Trow said the variance allows dairy farming to come back into operation.

5. Ms. Leclerc said the property is zoned rural/ag and permits the land to be used for dairy farming.

Ms. Trow made a motion to grant a variance for Section VIII Section C, Tax Map 7, Lot 1, 13 Boggy Meadow Lane, to allow a mobile home to be placed on a permanent foundation as indicated on the map while it operates as a dairy operation.

Ms. Leclerc asked if she meant permanent foundation or a temporary foundation. Mr. Smith said he didn’t think a permanent foundation was needed and would prefer that the motion say something about a temporary one. He knows of another dairy farm that uses cement blocks for its mobile home and he hasn’t any idea of how much an additional cost would be for a permanent one. The Board discussed temporary foundations and then decided to replace the word permanent in the motion with the word adequate. The motion was amended to substitute the word adequate for permanent. Mr. Murray seconded the motion and the Board approved the motion.

New Business:

Catherine Harris: Signage – 6 Ames Plaza. Sign is 18 inches by 47.5 inches. Closest neighbor, Power Sports, has a sandwich-board type of sign that gets moved every day.

Mark Smith represented Ms. Harris. He produced a copy of the sign. It says CHS in large blue letters. The S has a picture of the globe in the bottom of the S. Wealth Management & CPAs are in much smaller black letters below that. On the right side of the sign are the services listed: investments, taxation, consulting, estates/trusts, then a telephone number (866-247-6800) and a web address. The two-sided sign will be placed on the lawn in front of the office parking lot on Ames way. It is in the permitted 65-foot distance from the center of Upper Walpole Road. A light will shine up at the sign. There will also be two lights at the bottom of the parking lot, one at each end.

There was a concern about the light shining up at the sign that would not be in keeping with dark sky lighting. Mr. Smith said the light would be on a timer and shut off at 9 pm. Another concern of the Board regarded the brightness of the lights, including the ones by the parking lot. Since lighting is under the purview of the Planning Board, the ZBA can’t rule on that matter.

Ms. Trow made a motion to approve the sign as it complied with the ordinance. Ms. Mansouri seconded the motion and the Board approved it.

Chad Thurston: Variance or Expansion of a Non-conforming Use for 65-foot setback from the road for a porch at 73 Main Street, former American Legion building. He also needs to go before the PB for a site plan.

Mr. Thurston explained he planned to build a simple 6-foot-by-26-foot open farm-style porch across the front of the building. The porch would provide entry to the building for tenants who live in the two upstairs apartments as well as for customers for the proposed real estate office on the first floor. He said that a porch had been approved before when Costume Ladies was in the building, but that was in 2014 and the approval status is no longer valid.

The Board decided that since the building didn’t conform to current zoning ordinances an Expansion of a Non-conforming Use application was more appropriate than a variance. A motion was made, seconded and passed to hold a Public Hearing for the addition of a porch in March.

Ryan Harrison and his wife purchased a house at 113 Prospect Hill, Tax Map 17, Residential A.

Mr. Harrison had a map and plans of the house and the addition to the house for an ADA compliant apartment for his in-laws and an attached garage. The house itself is about 45 feet from center of road and the addition is a few feet further back. They cannot push the addition towards the back of the lot  because of the lot topography and a pool in the back.

Mr. Murray asked if there would be a new driveway. Mr. Harrison said he had been in contact with Road Agent Michael Rau who said it would depend on when the house was built. If it were built before 1971, he could put in a driveway directly to the new garage. If it were built after that, he would have to figure out something else. Mr. Rau is checking on that matter.

Since the house is non-conforming, the Board decided Mr. Harrison also needed an Expansion of a Non-conforming Use application. Ms. Trow made a motion to hold a Public Hearing next month for an Expansion of a Non-conforming Use. Mr. Murray seconded the motion and the Board approved the motion.

Allen and Tiffany Parker, owners of 47 River Road North, Tax Map 18, Lot 12-1, came in to discuss the letter they received from the Selectboard about three apartments at that location. Having three apartments in a Residential B district is not permitted. Therefore, they needed to get a Special  from the Zoning Board of Adjustment to keep the third apartment and that also required a site plan from the Planning Board

Mr. Parker said that there were not three apartments at that location, there were actually only two apartments in that building. When he and his wife bought the building, Mr. Parker said there were four apartments. They were simply making renovations to the house.

He was advised that he should check with Town Offices if indeed he had been paying taxes for a three-apartment house. The Board apologized for the mistake and the stress the couple had gone through.

 

Signage: Jack Franks took down the sign on Red Barn Lane. He apologized for being late in taking down the sign.


Short-term rentals such as Airbnbs: Ms Leclerc had gone to the Select Board to discuss contacting the town attorney about adding short term rentals, such as provided by companies like airbnbs, being added to the B&B ordinance. The secretary had contacted the NH Municipal Association about this matter and after reading the town ordinance to one of the lawyers at the Association, he confirmed that that ordinance would also include covering short term rentals. However, the Select Board wanted something in writing from the Association so Chair Leclerc called and asked for that confirmation in writing, which she got.

 

It was decided that a small change could be made to the ordinance. It would now read. “Bed and Breakfast and Short-term Rental establishments (ex. Airbnbs) for the accommodation of paying, overnight guests, may be maintained in all zoning districts provided that the number of rooms for rent in any one establishment shall not number more than four and further provided that breakfast shall be the only meal provided and that to bona fide overnight guests. The conversion of a single-family residence or other building to a bed and breakfast or short-term rental shall require Site Plan approval by the Planning Board. Off-street parking for one car per rented room plus space for owner parking shall be provided.”

 

Copies of ordinances from Alstead, Chesterfield, Portsmouth and Winchester regarding Bnb ordinances and districts where Bnbs were permitted were distributed to the Board. New legislation before the NH Legislature was also provided.

 

Ms. Mansouri made as motion to adjourn the meeting. Ms. Trow seconded the motion and the Board approved the motion.

Zoning Board Meeting Minutes – 11/15/17

Zoning Board of Adjustment

Town of Walpole

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

7:30 pm

 

 

Present: Board Members: Chair Myra Mansouri, Vice-Chair Jan Galloway Leclerc, Mary Therese Lester, Judy Trow, Tom Murray. Alternate: Ernie Vose. Absent: Pauline Barnes.

Recording: Marilou Blaine. These minutes are unapproved and will be reviewed at the December 2017 meeting for corrections, additions and/or omissions.

Roll Call: Ms. Mansouri called the meeting to order at 7:30 pm. There were five board members present so an alternate was not needed to fill in.

 

Minutes: On page 2 there were a couple of grammatical corrections. For example, provided should be provide, include should be includes and in sixth paragraph there should be the word stated after Ms. Lester. Also Ms. Clerc pointed out that Mr. Sawyer’s pit on Route 12 is not grandfathered. Ms. Lester made a motion to accept the minutes as amended. Ms. Trow seconded the motion and it was approved by the entire Board.

 

New Business:

Paula Burdick: new driveway Elm Street – Ms. Paula Burdick did not come to the meeting.

 

Update on Dan Mandich business From the Heart: Ms. Mansouri explained Mr. Mandich dropped off the form from the state for his home office on Prospect Hill. She signed it, made a copy and then he had to take it to the fire department for the fire chief to sign. Mr. Mandich will then bring back the form from the state and we will copy it and put it in his file. He’s not having anyone coming to to his house.

 

Update Carmody property, 6 Ames Lane, 2009 Town Report – There were questions about the status of the Carmody property on Ames Lane. According to the 2007 and 2008 Town Report, Dearborn Circle and Burrows Lane were changed to residential B at a vote on the warrant that resulted in 973 for and 137 against.

Ames Lane is a private road so their frontage is on Dearborn Circle, Ms. Trow said. So that means if the frontage of the lots is on Dearborn Circle, then the two lots are Residential B, not commercial.

Mr. Vose said one of the Carmody lots is on a corner so it’s also on Upper Walpole Rd. He would have the proper frontage there.

Ms. Leclerc said the lots may have the frontage on Dearborn Circle, but there is nothing in the zoning ordinance that says they have to use the frontage for access. 

Ms. Mansouri said the map say it’s Residential B and the tax card says it’s commercial.

In the end, the Board looked up the recently redrawn zoning map from Avitar.  That map indicates that the lot with frontage on both Dearborn Circle and Upper Walpole Road is in Residential B. It also shows the lot that was subdivided off from the corner lot is zoned commercial.

                                                                     

Patricia Rodrigues request

Under the Right to Know law, Ms. Rodrigues requested by email copies of the gravel pit inspection reports for Graves Gravel pit and Hodgkins Industrial Park Gravel Pit. The secretary sent her copies of each report after she supplied her mailing address.

 

Lighting

At the request of the Board at the October meeting, the Board asked the secretary to research lighting and to check with Mari Brunner at Southwest Regional Planning Commission. Ms. Brunner suggested looking at the manual “Innovative Land Use Planning Techniques,’’ which the secretary obtained for free from Steve Landry of the NH Department of Environmental Services. Also included in the lighting information was the Planning Board’s lighting plan in the site plan and a document that was in the file.

Ms. Trow said, regarding the Irving sign, she wanted to see the sign illuminated so in the future she’ll have a better idea of brightness. Ms. Raynie Laware said the sign would be 6700 lumens. Some of the sample ordinances in the “Innovative” book recommended1800 lumens as the optimum number of lumens. All agreed that seeing the sign will make the difference. If there’s a problem, Ms. Laware said the lights could be dimmed.

Ms. Trow asked if light is a zoning responsibility. Mr. Vose responded that the Board can put conditions on anything.

 

New Business:

Ms. Mansouri was at the Planning Board meeting the previous night and there was a Public Hearing on amending the Detached Accessory Dwelling Units. The Planning Board voted to recommend the amendments and they will be placed on the warrant in March.

Ms. Mansouri and Mr. Jeff Miller, chair of the Planning Board, are the ones who came up with the language for the amendments.

The amendments are:

A definition of DADU:

As defined as a residential living unit that is with the same single-family lot and provides independent living facilities for one or more persons, including provisions for sleeping, eating, cooking, and sanitation on the same parcel of land as the principal unit it accompanies.

1-F No conversions to condominiums and must remain in common ownership.

2-D Only one DADU per lot.

2-E Must comply with town ordinances and regulations.

Ms. Mansouri asked if the language for the amendments were going to the town attorney. She will check with the Planning Board chair Jeff Miller.

 

Town Warrant 

Ms. Trow and Ms. Barnes were looking into the signage on Alstead Center Road, which at one time was called Hitchcock Road. Ms. Trow said that she and Ms. Barnes had the maps out and quickly felt that the descriptions were descriptions of 1960 things that they had no knowledge of. She said she always relied on the maps before and not the written descriptions in the ordinance.

Ms. Mansouri said she would contact the Municipal Association in Concord and ask them to help write an ordinance as simple as possible. But if it goes on the warrant, it needs two Public Hearings by the Planning Board. The name of the road was changed when 911 went in.

 

Good News 

Bob Anderson said he would be happy to come back as an alternate starting in January. Everyone was very glad to see him when he stopped in and were delighted with his decision to comeback on the Board. He has been missed.

Mr. Murray wanted to know the zone of the lot next to where Dr. Chuck Shaw’s veterinary business is. Mr. Vose responded rural/agricultural.

 

Mr. Vose made a motion to adjourn. The motion was seconded by Ms. Leclerc and entire Board vote in the affirmative.

 

Respectfully submitted,

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

Ms. Trow made a motion to accept the minutes as amended. Ms. Lester seconded the motion and the Board vote to approve.

 

New Business:

Paula Burdick: new driveway Elm Street

Ms. Paula Burdick said she was not coming to the meeting tonight because she had resolved the design of her driveway on Elm Street.

 

Signage: Bruce Bergeron, representing Irving Oil, new sign at Jakes Market

Raynie Laware and Karen Tyler were representing Jakes Market and Deli, 51 Main Street. The land is owned by the Walpole Foundation and Ms. Tyler and Ms. Laware were representing the Foundation. The applicant is Rob Hunt.

The Board had a picture of the sign. Ms. Laware explained that the sign was two-square feet smaller than the previous sign. The sign is free-standing. The existing pole will remain, the existing coroplast sign at the bottom will be removed as will the existing price sign. A digital LED sign will replace the price sign and become part of the Irving sign. Ms. Laware said it will not be as bright as the one now.

There were questions whether the lighted portion of the sign will be dimmed or go off. Ms. Laware said the price sign will go on when the store opens at 6 am and go off when it closes at 8 pm. The pumps will not operate when the store is closed.

A couple of Board members wanted to know how bright the price sign will be. Ms. Laware did not know but said she would let the secretary know and the secretary would let the Board know.

Mr. Vose said it is a better situation. Ms. Lester liked the sign also. Mr. Murray said this sign is cleaner, more clearer and less cluttered.

Mr. Murray made a motion to accept the sign as presented and on the condition the Board approves the wattage. Ms. Trow seconded the motion and it was approved by the rest of the Board.

 

Bob Mandich, 33 Prospect Hill – home business 

Mr. Bob Mandich came before the Board to discuss a home business. The business is called “From the Heart” and it is to provided home care for people who need it. The services that are supplied will be mostly paid for by the state, he said. It include transportation to medical appointments and someone to come in and help. Everyone who gives a service will be bonded, trained and vetted.

The home office is in Residential B. Mr. Mandich who will be the only employee. His brother and sister own businesses of the same name in three cities in Pennsylvania. He said the state needs a letter from the Zoning Board stating a home office is permitted in this district. Zoning Ordinance Article V, Part B 3 says, “Residences may be used to house such customary uses by the owner or tenant as offices for doctors, lawyers, real estate and insurance, or other recognized professions or such home occupations a hair dressing or dress-making, except that the number of person employed at any one location shall not number more that two persons in addition to the owner or tenant. Adequate off-street parking shall be provided on the premises.” Since Mandich is the sole employee, parking was not an issue.

The Board acknowledged that his business fit this description and the secretary will write a letter to the state.

 

Old Business:

Executive session – minutes

The Board got a copy of the Executive Session minutes for August 16, 2017. Mr. Vose made a motion to accept the minutes and seal them. The motion was seconded by Ms. Leclerc and approved by the Board.

 

Gravel Pit Inspections

Everyone turned in their gravel pit inspection forms. Ms. Mansouri and Ms. Trow inspected the two Hodgkins pits and Ms. Trow said everything was in order.

Ms. Leclerc and Mr. Murray inspected the Tim Graves Gravel pit on Wentworth Road and the Sawyer Gravel pit, which is grandfathered. Ms. Lester and Mr. Vose inspected Cold River and Whipple Hill. Ms. Lester that Cold River had enough base that they would be taking stuff out of there for the next 20 years.

The reports will be copied and sent to each owner with a letter saying that the gravel pit has had its yearly inspection.

 

Corrections to last month’s minutes about Carmody property, 6 Ames Lane

There are still questions about whether the Carmody property is Residential B or commercial. The Town map indicates it is residential and included in the property in the Dearborn Circle neighborhood. The tax map says it is commercial. The secretary will look up the Walpole Report of 2008 to see whether the Carmody property was part of the land voted Residential B at the March 2007 vote.

 

2018 Planning and Land use Regulation Manual

It was decided that the secretary will order two manuals – one for the new alternate Pauline Barnes and one for the Zoning Board office.

 

Obsolete Ordinances: Ms. Barnes brought up the fact that one of the ordinances about signs is obsolete. It is the one about neon signs, which no longer were being made. What does the ZBA do about “horse and buggy” type ordinances.

She also brought up the question about wattage of LED signs. What’s the norm? What makes a LED sign too bright that it might interfere with a neighbor?

The secretary will contact the Southwestern Regional Planning Commission and see if the organization had information on LED lighting.

Letter to the Zoning Board

The Zoning Board received a letter from a Walpole resident living in Dearborn Circle. The person was  concerned about the September Zoning Board minutes and was writing about the discussion of a storage facility at 6 Ames Plaza Lane.

The letter said that in March 2007, Dearborn Circle and Burrows Lane was changed by referendum ballot from Commercial to Residential A.

The letter also mentioned that the trees, mentioned in the minutes, were not tall, nor adequate in their implementation. “They do not provide adequate screening, as the lower branches die off in the single-row planting. No tree is greater than 30 feet tall, and three trees in that row have died in the past five years.”

The tax card was looked at and it was found that that property is zoned Residential B, not commercial, as was stated at the prior meeting. A person could not build a storage facility there without a Special Exception or a Variance. And an owner of the property could not built a four or six apartment house structure as an apartment in Residential B can only have two apartments.

 

Warrant Article 

Ms. Trow and Ms. Barnes will read through the Zoning Articles and find road names that have been changed. Changes to the Zoning Articles will then be presented at two public hearings regarding the name changes and be put on the 2018 warrant.

 

A motion was made to adjourn. It was seconded by Ms. Lester and approved by the Board.
