Public Hearing Notice
Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at 7:00 PM
Town of Carroll, New Hampshire

The Carroll Planning Board will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at 7:00 PM at the Carroll Town Hall to receive public comments on the following zoning amendments under consideration by the Planning Board for proposed adoption at 2019 Town Meeting:

Amendment # 1

Part A  would replace the existing Town of Carroll, New Hampshire Zoning Ordinance with a revised Zoning Ordinance dated October 4, 2018. The new Zoning Ordinance is reorganized and renumbered for clarity, and also includes numerous updates and revisions, including but not limited to:

Part B would revise the format of existing Section 303. District Regulations by removing the lists of permitted uses and uses allowed by special exception and replacing the lists for each zoning district with a single unified table. The table would become the first subsection of District Regulation and the following subsections would be renumbered.

Amendment #2

Would add new Section Lot Size Averaging to enable the Planning Board and applicants more flexibility in laying out subdivisions throughout town by reducing certain dimensions and averaging lot sizes to meet the minimum requirements without exceeding the density limits for the district.

Amendment #3

Would expand existing Aquifer Protection District to include wellhead protection areas in order to protect existing public water supplies from contamination from hazardous and toxic material.

Amendment #4

Would add new section Shoreland Protection Overlay District to supplement the protections of the state Water Quality Protection Act by providing additional protection from streambank erosion by requiring a ten (10) foot wide vegetated buffer be left in place along all year-round rivers and streams.

Amendment #5

Would replace existing Section Flood Hazard Areas with new section Flood and Erosion Hazard Area Overlay District. The new language will strengthen protections for public safety, property, public infrastructure, emergency personnel and water quality by putting greater restrictions on the development that can take place in the 100 year floodplain and in areas that have been identified as having High or Very High risk of bank erosion during a major flood event.

Amendment #6

Would add new Section Wetlands Conservation Overlay District to protect wetland ecosystems and water quality by restricting development activities in wetlands ten (10) acres and larger and a 50 foot wide buffer around them.

The full text of the amendments can be viewed at the Town Hall during regular business hours. Written comments may be submitted in advance of the hearing addressed to Planning Board, 92 School Street, Carroll, NH 03595.

 History

Under Governor John Wentworth, a Charter was granted February 8, 1772 to Sir Thomas Wentworth and others for a tract of land called Bretton-Woods, derived from the estate of the Wentworth Family in England called Bretton Hall.

By June 1830, the population was 150 people but was unincorporated having no representation in the legislature.  The residents petitioned the legislature to become a Town named Haven (apparently to honor Alfred W. Haven, Justice of the Peace of Bretton Woods.)

As of May 1831, the legislature had not acted upon the petition of Bretton-Woods to incorporate as a town.  Some of the original petitioners changed their minds and wanted to withdraw the petition.  The legislature ignored the petition and passed an Act signed into law on June 22, 1832 incorporating the Town of Carroll.

Charles Carroll of Maryland was a distinguished American of wide reputation and one of the signers of the Delcaration of Independence.  Thus, the Town of Carroll was incorporated which included the villages of Crawford's, Bretton Woods, Fabyans and Twin Mountain.
