August 30th, 2016

TOWN OF CARROLL ZONING BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT


MINUTES August 25th 2016
Members present were: Chairman-Paul Bussiere, Rob Gauthier and John Trammel, David Scalley
Members of the public present were: Charles and Michelle Gamache, Mike Hogan
The Public Meeting was called to order at 7:00 PM by Chairman Bussiere.
The pledge of allegiance was recited. Chairman Bussiere stated that the first order of business was the proposed ZBA budget for 2017. The secretary line was increased to 6000.00 Dollars. The reason is Mr Bussiere will not be seeking reelection to the ZBA and has been doing the secretary duties. The ZBA will need a secretary and the 2016 amount of 1000.00 Dollars has been proven to be historically short. The board had little discussion after the explanation and a motion was made by David Scalley to approve the proposed budget for 2017 as written. John Trammel seconded the motion. The chair took for vote and all were in favor of passing the proposed 2017 ZBA budget to the Select Board.
At this time David Scalley removed himself from the board and went into the audience as an applicant requesting a special exception for property located at map 207 lot 36 per Town of Carroll Zoning requirements. The chair asked Mr. Scalley to present his case for review to the ZBA. Mr. Scalley explained that the planning board had already approved his project but added a condition the Mr. Scalley get a special exception from the ZBA for apartment building(s) use of the R-B zoned property. Mr. Scalley presented the plans as approved by the planning board. The planning board had previously asked about parking, lighting, driveway permits and various other concerns that would have overlapped with the ZBA questions. The Chair asked the audience if there was anyone present that wanted to speak for or against the project. Mr. and Mrs. Gamache asked what happened to the previously planned restaurant. Mr. Scalley explained that there had been a change with possible operators of the restaurant and the project was no longer viable in his opinion. Mr. Hogan asked about the sign in front of the property and Mr Scalley explained that as of this date they plan to keep the sign there and will consider uses in the future.
The chair asked if there were any more questions or comments from the audience. There were none. The chair then asked the board for discussion of the three required criteria. The board went over each criterion and all members felt that the requirements to grant a special exception for the apartment building use were satisfied.
Rob Gauthier made a motion to grant the special exception applied for. John Trammel seconded that motion. The chair took a vote and all ZBA members were in favor of approving the motion.
Having no further business Rob Gauthier made a motion to adjourn. John Trammel seconded the motion. Vote was taken and all were in favor.
Meeting closed at 7:55 PM
