Zoning Board Minutes

June 9, 1999

Voting Board Chairperson Neil Faiman; member Bob Spear; alternate member Joanna Eckstrom.
Clerk Diane Nilsson
  • PVA-EPVA, Inc. - special exception continuation
  • Sanders - multiple variances

Mr. Faiman called the meeting to order at 7:30 p.m. and explained to the applicants that there would only be a three member board this evening, and that each applicant had the option of going ahead with his application or postponing the hearing to the next meeting in the hopes of having a larger board. PVA-EPVA, Inc. opted to go ahead with their hearing this evening.

Case #5/12/99-1 (continued)

PVA-EPVA, Inc. has applied for a special exception under the terms of section 11.4(c) of the Wilton Zoning Ordinance, to reclassify soils on lot B-110, 19 Stoney Brook Drive, which have been incorrectly designated as being "poorly drained" or "very poorly drained" on the Town of Wilton Wetland Conservation District Map. (Continuation of the May 12 hearing.)

Mr. Faiman presented a letter from Keach-Nordstrom Associates, Inc, which serves as the review of PVA-EPVA wetland/soil site investigation that was presented at the last meeting. He also presented the applicant with a bill for the cost of the report, which they must pay to the town. The clerk did not receive a copy of the bill for the file. Lorne Feinberg, legal counsel for PVA, presented plans signed by a certified soil scientist (actually the plans state that Gary Collins is a licensed land surveyor). He also stated that the review by Mr. Keach agreed with the soils and wetland mapping done by PVA.

Motion Ms. Eckstrom moved to grant the special exception contingent upon receipt of the engineering fee for Keach-Nordstrom. Mr. Spear seconded the motion and all were in favor.

Mr. Faiman stated that the applicants would receive a notice of decision in the mail shortly. He further stated that the selectmen, any party to the action or proceedings, or any person affected thereby may apply for a rehearing of this decision. A request for a rehearing must be filed in writing with the Zoning Board of Adjustment on or before Tuesday, June 1, and must fully specify all grounds on which the rehearing is requested. (N.H. RSA 677:2)

Case #6/9/99-1

Mr. Sanders chose have his case heard at the July meeting, but requested that the board members come and view the site before the hearing. Mr. Faiman agreed but said that the gathering would have to be noticed in Town Hall 24 hours before it occurred. He agreed to try and set up a time to view the site. The case was continued to the July meeting.

Some of the abutters asked if Neil would contact them when the date is set to visit the site. He agreed to do that.


Minutes - May 12, 1999

Motion Ms. Eckstrom moved to approve the 5/12/99 minutes, seconded by Mr. Spear with all in favor.

July Meeting Date

Motion Ms. Eckstrom moved to change the date of the July meeting to July 7 instead of July 14, seconded by Mr. Spear, with all in favor.

Mr. Faiman will contact the Sanders' with the new date. He will also contact Robert Todd, a new applicant, and he will write a new abutter notice for the Sanders case. The clerk will resend abutter notices for the Sanders case, but will not send them certified mail.

A motion was made, seconded and passed to adjourn the meeting. The meeting was adjourned at 8 p.m.
