Rehearing on Timber Land delayed

GILFORD — The proposed request for a rehearing of the decision of the Zoning Board of Adjustments to lift a cease-and-desist order that was stopping Timber Land Farm, the home of Beans and Greens, from hosting outdoor events has been postponed until Tuesday at 10:30 a.m.
Chairman Scott Davis said the reason for the postponement is that the minutes of the meeting in which the decision to rescind the order were delayed. According to the ZBA's attorney, both the abutter who wants the cease-and-desist order imposed and Timber Land Farm should have until the close of business on Monday to submit additional evidence supporting their positions.
The decision to postpone was passed 3 to 0. Timber Land Farm owner and board Chairman Andrew Howe and attorney Stephan Nix recused themselves from the vote.
