Lots being developed off Meredith Neck Road
By RICK GREEN, LACONIA DAILY SUN
MEREDITH — The Meredith Planning Board has conditionally approved a four-lot subdivision proposed for a rural area off Meredith Neck Road near Powers Road.
The subdivision, which is to include four five-acre lots, is being proposed by Faller Enterprises, which is owned by Meredith Public Works Director Michael Faller and his wife.
The board staged a site visit to the property on May 9. Conditional approval was given on May 23, Town Planner Angela LaBrecque said Monday.
Faller said the proposal is unrelated to his longstanding job with the town.
He said he plans to build a house for himself on one the lots.
He also subdivided a six-acre piece of land nearby into two three-acre parcels. Spec houses are going up on those lots.
"We need growth," Faller said. "If it's done tastefully, which I feel I'm doing, it's helping the town."
He noted that fees associated with taking land out of current use provisions can provide support for the Conservation Commission, and new houses improve the town's property tax base.
Faller also said his proposed development will be on a private road, and as such won't create the need for additional town Public Works services.
