Public Hearing: Self-Storage Units Next to Fire Station on 109A

The Zoning Board of Adjustment will hold a public hearing on September 20, 2016, at 7PM at the old Town House on 109A.

Paul Zimmerman is seeking a zoning variance special exception to the zoning ordinance to construct four self-storage buildings on three acres of land next to the fire station on 109A, according to a letter sent to nearby property owners alerting them to the public hearing, and notices were displayed at the Melvin Village and Center Tuftonboro post offices, and published in the Granite State News. The property is currently zoned residential and requires a special exception for use for storage buildings.

This is the plan for the proposed storage buildings next to the Fire station:
proposed-self-storage-109a-tuftonboro
The building outlined in red sits closest to the road and is proposed 160 feet long, with up to 20 storage doors. There would be another building directly behind it, and then two buildings up behind on the hill.

Chris Sawyer, the chairman of the planning board, stated in a post on Facebook that if the ZBA grants the variance to the zoning, the Planning Board will still have to sign off on the project.

Correction: this post originally stated Zimmerman needed a variance instead of a special exception. See this post for the difference between the two: Zoning Board Grants Continuance to Zimmerman
