Agenda: Review of minutes of cases
Case Minutes -
Case 2005-4 for a request of Robert Demont for an Area Variance was discussed.
The following changes were suggested. Kurt would like the word “all” deleted from the third paragraph. The wording should be “Five members of the Board were present (Roger Chambers, Kurt Kramp, Helene Matesky, Ted Brown and David Urey) who will be the voting members”.
David Urey would like the seventh paragraph to state “David Urey asked about Septic loading requirements”. In the same paragraph Kurt feels that the next sentence should state “Bob Tafuto stated that town lot loading requirements were for 4-bedroom homes”.
On the second page in the fourth paragraph third sentence should be changed to read “Bob did not feel this would not be out of character for the neighborhood to be that close because there are others along the road that are close”.
In the ninth paragraph the second sentence should read “There were none from people present but Kurt did have 2 phone calls”.
Roger Chambers asked if there were further comments. There were none. Helene Matesky made a motion that we accept the minutes as corrected. Dot Wood seconded the motion and all voted favorably.
General Discussion about Board Minutes: David Urey asked if the minutes could be posted in the same manner as the Planning Board. It was agreed that they would be at the Post Office and Town Office and Helene would add them to the E-news for people who have this capability. It was also decided to correct the minutes and add an approval date.
By-laws: There was a brief discussion of the By-laws that were distributed at the January meeting. After discussion by the Board, a few minor wording changes were made.
The most important change in the By-Laws is a new time limit for filing of appeals. The new wording states –
Appeals from Administrative Decisions pursuant to RSA 676:5 which includes appeals of certain Planning Board decisions, may be filed no later than 30 calendar days from the date of the decision. However, the Board, by a majority vote, may waive this period if the person appealing can demonstrate to the Board’s satisfaction that he did not know, and could not reasonably have known, that the decision had been made.
Dot Wood made a motion to accept the By-Laws as amended. Kurt Kramp seconded the motion and all voted favorably.
Kurt Kramp wished to thank Helene Matesky for all the work that she has done on these By-Laws.
MEETING DATE CHANGE: Because the Water Precinct hearing is being held on the third Wednesday, the Board of Adjustment will meet on March 22 at 7 PM.
There being no further discussion Ted Brown made a motion to adjourn at 8:40 PM. Dot Wood seconded the motion and all voted favorably.
