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,

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.

Zoning Board Meeting Minutes – 8/21/17

Zoning Board of Adjustment

Town of Walpole

Wednesday, August 21, 2017

7:30 pm

 

 

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

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

Roll Call: Ms. Mansouri called the meeting to order at 7:36 pm. There was a quorum of three board members and Alternate Ernie Vose was asked to act as a regular Board member.

Minutes:  Mr. Murray made a motion to accept the minutes as presented. Ms. Mansouri seconded the motion and the Board voted in the affirmative.

 

Old Business: Public Hearing for an Expansion of a Non-Conforming Use. Map 18, Lot 18, Residential B, owners of the property at 56 Old Keene Road are Andrea-Vickers and Griffin Sivret.

Mr. Chad Thurston of Griffin Construction explained that he wanted to add 7 feet to the existing building, continuing on in the same line and run it parallel to the road.

Ms. Leclerc asked if it would be closer to the road. Mr. Thurston said no. The original setback was 60 feet from the center line of the street instead of the current ordinance requirement of 65 feet.

With no further questions from the Board or the audience, Ms. Mansouri closed the hearing. Mr. Vose made a motion to accept the Expansion as presented. Ms. Leclerc seconded the motion and the Board voted in favor of the motion.

 

New Business: Mr. Ben Northcott wants to excavate on his property off of Old Cheshire Turnpike where he stores and repairs his large earth moving equipment. He received a permit from the Selectmen to excavate 5,000 yards and sell about 3,000 yards to the Town of Walpole to the Highway Department.

Mr. Northcott explained that he wanted to put the his large equipment behind the red barn and it was about 8 feet higher than all the buildings around it. He wants to make it level to the red building in one of the pictures he provided and put doors in the back so trucks and equipment can enter from the back instead of from the road side. It would keep it farther from Cheshire Turnpike and cut down on noise. He was going to use some of the gravel for the parking areas, the road on the property and the driveway and other places on the property where it was needed. “We don’t want a high pile of gravel for a number of years,” he said.

Mr. Vose asked if this is a finite amount that he wanted to sell. Mr. Northcott said the area is about 100 to 150 feet. Mr. Vose asked if he was in the business of selling of gravel from the property – or is this a one-time deal. Mr. Northcott said once he did what he had to do with gravel around his property, that was his intention.

The photograph shows the back of building with about 4 feet of gravel removed and if one walked into the building now he/she would walk into the middle section of the building. By removing more gravel     one could walk into the building on level ground and that is where the larger machines would be stored and repaired during the winter months.

Ms. Mansouri said he already had a permit from the town. So why are you here, Mr. Vose asked. Mr. Northcott said, “So we can sell the excess material.”  It would be similar to what Mr. Franks did. Mr. Vose said that the Zoning Board didn’t have to deal with that, it was a one-time deal, the town collects the taxes and the Board had nothing to do with.

Ms. Mansouri said Mr. Northcott was doing it as a courtesy to the Board because the Board worked on a similar project with Mr. Northcott last year when he bought the property. The neighbors wanted to make sure the equipment wasn’t seen from the road and wanted to be assured that he wasn’t opening a quarry.

Mr. Vose asked who he crushed crush gravel for. Mr. Northcott answered mostly for towns. The large equipment is only there during the winter.

Ms. Mansouri said the Board wanted a written account of what’s going on. The Board thanked him for coming to the Board to explain what he was doing.

 

Mr. Doug and Mrs. Laura Palmer came into ask a lot of questions about property the couple are thinking of buying behind Ocean State Job Lot in Ames Plaza. The property is 6 Ames Lane and next to a store Mr. Palmer rents. The property and the store building are owned by William Carmody. They are zoned commercial.

The Palmers said that if they buy the property, they will either put up an apartment building or mini storage units. It is Lot 18 and there is both a water line and a sewer line going under the property the setback rule is 10 feet from each line. Tall trees create a border between the lot and Dearborn Circle.

Mr. Palmer wanted to understand the limitations of the land regarding setbacks from other properties and the center line of a the access road. The setback ordinances say 20 feet from the property line on the sides and in the back, 65 feet from right of way the access road. Ames Plaza Lane is a private road. Dearborn Circle is the road frontage line.

Mr. Carmody is putting in a driveway that will access into Ames Plaza Lane, a private road, not Dearborn Circle, because of the trees and because it is Residential B. The actual deed for the Dearborn Circle development was that it was commercial land but would be returned to residential B after 20 years and it was approved by the voters.

Which road should they use? Because Ames Plaza Road is a private road, they don’t have to follow the 65-foot rule.

If we put a building 20 feet off the property line, can we put in a driveway between the building and the property line? Mr. Palmer asked. The answer was yes.

It is 2/3 of a acre or about 30,000 square feet, minimum is 25,000, so a building could be put on the property.

An apartment is allowed. Storage units are not mentioned in the ordinance. Mr. Palmer wants to put in 30-40 units, 10 by 10 or 10 by 20. Would this be allowed? The Planning Board said at a previous meeting that storage is not permitted in a commercial district. Mr. Robert Miller read the ordinance at the Planning Board’s last meeting. The Planning Board said that they would need a Special Exception to build storage units.

Mr. Murray said, “That is their opinion.”

Ms. Mansouri asked, “How many apartments and what would they be like?”

Mr. Palmer said they would look like the building next door. It would look like a square colonial. Four to six apartments would be the goal.

Mr. Palmer said he would like it in writing or in the minutes what is accepted in the commercial district. Ms. Mansouri said she wasn’t sure if the Board could do that ahead of time. There are specific uses in the commercial ordinance. And in the ordinance there is an avenue for a Special Exception.

Ms. Leclerc said but the ordinance was written in the 60s when storage units were not being built. She said she would consider this a retail use, which is considered in the ordinance.

Mrs. Palmer asked it they could get a Variance. Mr. Palmer asked what is difference between a Special Exception and a Variance? Ms. Mansouri said a Special Exception is a lot easier to get.

The logic is that if we want to know what we can do before we buy. He would like to put in 40 storage units but the land wouldn’t allow it. There is the sewer line, which no one can build on and has a setback of 10 feet. So the new layout is 32.

If the access road is a private right of way, you need permission from the owners, Ms. Mansouri said. Mr. Palmer said it was part of the subdivision – a deeded right of way.

“It’s my opinion that it’s a retail situation,” Ms. Leclerc said. It’s retail in that people can come and go, Vose said.

You are not generating a lot of traffic and you should establish reasonable hours of operation, but that’s a Planning Board issue, Mr. Murray said.

After all the discussion, Ms. Leclerc made a motion to call mini storage a recognized use as a retail business in the commercial district. Mr. Murray seconded the motion and the motion was passed by the Board.

So the next step is for the Palmers to go back to the Planning Board for a site plan.

 

Bruce Bosworth/Rob Hemmings, 46 Old Cheshire Turnpike, Drewsville, Residential A, 570 square-foot cabin on .66 acres, inherited the property from his father 41/2 years ago, paid taxes as well as mortgage, wants to sell.

Ms. Mansouri handed out a letter with a tax card of the Hemmings property.

Mr. Bruce Bosworth of Westmoreland is interested in buying property but can he build on this property because of its size. Mr. Bosworth intends to tear down the building and construct a new home.

Ms. Mansouri asked about the well and a septic. Water is obtained from a spring from the house across the street in Drewsville. He is uncertain where the septic is but realizes that the has to put in a new septic system. Regulations are that a septic system and source of water must be 75 to 90 feet apart. The road frontage is 213 feet. What size house house would you like to build? Mansouri asked. He answered 1250 to 1500 square feet.

The lot size is smaller by zoning but is it larger enough to build on? He doesn’t have to build on the same footprint.

He must deal with setbacks, 65 feet from center of road to the front of the house, and 20 feet from each side and back.

The first thing you have to do is deal with the septic to make sure it’s going to fit on the property. The selectmen would need to see the house plan and would have to deal with the septic site. The state is responsible for septic regulations.

It was suggested that Mr. Bosworth check with the Cheshire County Registry of Deeds to see if the deed says the property can get water from the spring. Then he must prove that there will be the correct distance between the water source from the spring or a new well and his septic system. Because the lot had a home on it previously, he can build anywhere on the lot and does not have to build on the footprint of the house.

 

Criteria for Special Exception for SignageMs. Leclerc clarified that in rural/ag the setback from the center of the road is 20 feet. She also pointed out that 100-foot rule is the only time a Special Exception is needed so the other points were just points that had to be on a sign form. If a sign is 6 square feet or smaller you can put it closer than 100 feet to another sign.

Mr. Murray said he would like the issue of obscuring another sign from view of pedestrian or car traffic considered when making a decision. These are things that we should just keep in mind when considering signage.

This might be good to hand out if someone asked to someone getting a Special Exception for a sign, Ms. Leclerc said. It will be given out to applicants considering a sign that is greater than 6 square feet.

 

Ruggiero Decision – there was motion to go into Executive Session at 8:30 pm. The motion was seconded and approved by the rest of the Board. The Board came out of Executive Session at 8:38 pm.

 

Mr. Murray made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Ms. Leclerc seconded the motion and the Board vote to approve the motion.

 

Respectfully submitted,
