  • Dawn B. & Philip E. Tuomala – extension of variance expiration date

Mr. Faiman called the meeting to order at 7:30 p.m., introduced the board members and explained the procedures for hearing cases.

Case #2/10/04–1 — CHALET SUSSE INTERNATIONAL, INC. (continued)

Chalet Susse International, Inc., has applied for a special exception under the terms of Section 11.4 of the Wilton Zoning Ordinance, to permit a driveway to cross two wetland areas and a perennial stream in connection with a proposed subdivision of Lots C—128—1—1 and C—128—1—2, Keys Hill Road.

Case #2/10/04–2 — CHALET SUSSE INTERNATIONAL, INC. (continued)

Chalet Susse International, Inc., has applied for a variance to the terms of Section 6.3.5 of the Wilton Zoning Ordinance, to permit five single-family lots to be accessed from one common driveway in connection with a proposed subdivision of Lots C—128—1—1 and C—128—1—2, Keyes Hill Road.

Dawn Tuomala, with Monadnock Survey, represented the applicant and explained that Chalet Susse is on the Planning Board agenda for March 17. After consulting with the Fire Chief and the Planning Board, she was asked to move the fire pond so that the fire hydrant can be located on Keyes Hill Road instead of on the private road. The newly drawn pond will hold 42,000 gallons. They have increased the width of the shared driveway to 25’ for the bottom 150’.

It was agreed that Ms. Tuomala will send a set of signed plans to the Town’s engineer for review as soon as the Planning Board has reviewed the plans and knows what it wants the engineers to review.

A site walk was scheduled for Saturday, April 10 at 9 a.m.

Motion Ms. Eckstrom moved to continue the case to the April 13, 2004 meeting. The motion was seconded by Mr. Spear and all were in favor.

Case #5/14/02–3 — DAWN B. TUOMALA (extension)

In accordance with Section 17.4 of the Wilton Zoning Ordinance, Dawn B. Tuomala has requested that the Wilton Zoning Board extend the expiration date of the variance that was granted to her on May 14, 2002. The variance permits the construction of an addition to the existing house on Lot A – 71 – 1, 138 Jackson Drive, which will be closer to the deeded flowage rights to the State of New Hampshire, to the open water of the flood control pond, and to the 100 year flood plain than would otherwise be permitted in the Watershed District, as shown on the plan submitted with the application. In the absence of an extension, the variance would expire on May 14, 2004.

Ms. Tuomala submitted a drawing of the property and a drawing of the proposed addition. She said that there are no changes in the plans for the addition except that it might be smaller than originally proposed. She explained that her architect is near retirement and her project is small, that is part of the reason for the delay.

The Board noted that no zoning changes have been made in the Watershed District in the last two years and therefore had no objection to the request.

Motion Mr. Tuttle moved to grant a two-year extension to the variances to Section 17.4 that were originally granted in May, 2002. The motion was seconded by Mr. Spear and all were in favor.
