SANBORNTON — The Sanbornton Planning Board is proposing five amendments to the Sanbornton Zoning Ordinance which will be voted on by the voters at this year's Town elections (balloting) on Tuesday, March 10. The first amendment proposes to re-word the existing definition of "boundary line adjustment" and to clarify the details concerning "boundary line adjustment".
The second amendment proposes to add a new section to the "General Provisions" section of the Zoning Ordinance by adding a new section which would allow a person subdividing their land to employ an optional method for delineating the proposed subdivision lots. This optional method is called "lot size and lot frontage averaging" and is an innovative method for designing a subdivision which allows the subdivider to delineate the new subdivision lots based not on the minimum lot size and lot frontage requirements of the Zoning Ordinance but instead to determine the shape, size and road frontage of the new lots based on the on-site characteristics of the land such as topography, stream courses, stone walls, field edges and tree lines.
This method can help to avoid the "cookie cutter" type lots which are produced when the only lot-delineation factor is the zoning ordinance's minimum lot size and lot frontage requirements. With the "lot size and lot frontage averaging" method the number of new subdivision lots created will be the same as the number which would be created using the conventional subdivision design method but with this alternative method the subdivision design process will pay attention to the characteristics of the land and the lots can vary in size and frontage while taking into account the existing natural and cultural features of the land. The "Lot Size and Frontage Averaging" provisions would be allowed as a voluntary option available to land owners in the General Agricultural, General Residential, Historical Preservation and Commercial Zoning Districts. This amendment is intended to allow for averaging of lot size and lot frontage in new subdivisions to encourage sensitivity to the existing resources of the land being subdivided as well as greater flexibility in subdivision design.
The third amendment proposes to expand the existing Commercial/Light Manufacturing Permitted Zoning District which is located in the southeastern area of town near the Mosquito Bridge. This proposal would amend the official Zoning Map by extending the western boundary of this Zoning District to 600 feet west of Chapman Road and 600 feet west of that portion of Philbrook Road north of its intersection with Chapman Road. Also, all of this expanded zoning district would allow light manufacturing subject to all applicable state and local land use regulations. This amendment is intended to bring the Zoning Map's delineation of this Commercial (Light Manufacturing Permitted) Zoning District into alignment with the recommendations of the Master Plan and with the Master Plan's Future Land Use Map.
The fourth amendment proposes to expand the existing Commercial Zoning District which is located in the southwestern area of town near the Country Store/Irving Gas Station. This proposal would amend the official Zoning Map by expanding the boundaries of this Commercial Zoning District along NH Route 127 west of Prescott Road as shown on the map entitled "Proposed Amended Zoning Map 2015". The effect of adoption of this amendment will be to increase the size of the existing Commercial Zoning District along NH Route 127 starting at a point 600 feet west of Prescott Road and running 2000 feet further west along NH Route 127. Within this 2000 foot stretch of highway the Commercial (Light Manufacturing Permitted) Zoning District will extend on the north side of NH Route 127 a distance of 600 feet or to Salmon Brook, whichever is less, and on the south side of NH Route 127 will extend a distance of 600 feet.
The adoption of this amendment will also permit light manufacturing within this expanded Commercial Zoning District subject to all applicable state and local land use regulations. This amendment is intended to bring the Zoning Map's delineation of this Commercial Zoning District into alignment with the recommendations of the Master Plan and with the Master Plan's Future Land Use Map.
The fifth amendment proposes to create a new Commercial Zoning District which is located in the area north of the intersection of Taylor Road and Steele Hill Road. This proposal would amend the official Zoning Map by establishing a new Commercial Zoning District, the boundaries of which are as recommended by the Master Plan and specifically as shown on the map entitled "Proposed Amended Zoning Map 2015". This new Commercial Zoning District will include an area delineated as follows: The southern boundary line of this proposed new Zoning District follows the alignment of Taylor Road, the west end of this line being 1000 feet west of Steele Hill Road and the east end of this line being extended to a point 1600 feet east of Steele Hill Road; the west boundary line will be a line perpendicular to the south line and will run northerly a distance of 2600 feet; the east boundary line will be a line perpendicular to the south line and will run northerly a distance of 2600 feet; and the north boundary line will be a line connecting the northern most points of the east and west lines. This amendment is intended to bring the Zoning Map into alignment with the recommendations of the Master Plan and with the Master Plan's Future Land Use Map.
Anyone having questions regarding the proposed zoning amendments may call the Planning Office at 729-8003.
