To The Daily Sun,
In response to your article of Nov. 4 regarding efforts by Shep Brown's Boat Basin to store more boats in large buildings and treat boat-wash water, the thrust of the neighborhoods' concern has certainly not been the necessary and desirable treatment of wash water, but, the overwhelming size and impact of the buildings proposed.
Already, Brown's has three enormous buildings out of scale to the surroundings, visible from the islands and from miles away on the lake.
It is this concern for those surroundings which are cherished by the residents that we have called for, among other remedies, a comprehensive review of the proposed buildings under the mandatory requirements of Meredith's Architectural Design Review Ordinance.
Once a 38-foot high, 80-foot long box building is on the ground and so highly visible, that genie cannot be put back in the bottle as the current enormous buildings on the site demonstrate.
We would hope that all our New Hampshire residents would want sensitivity from their Planning Boards when the aesthetic effect on their homes, the value of their property and safety of those using the roads is being unnecessarily compromised.
