Chesterfield Zoning Board’s Decision could Allow Cluster Housing on Spofford Lake
A rehearing on this issue will take place on March 18 at the town office building at 7:00pm.
We urge you to attend
The Chesterfield Board of Selectmen stated that the town’s Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA)  Board did not act in the community’s best interest and voted to appeal the ZBA’s approval of this development.   
The Spofford Lake Association’s position on this issue is:
a)  To support the existing zoning rules and regulations in the Spofford Lake District and strongly oppose any variance for any future cluster development,
b)  To oppose the Chesterfield ZBA’s approval of the variance requested by 9A LLC, as it is contrary to the townspeople’s vote to restrict such a development
c)   To endorse the action of the Chesterfield Board of Selectmen to oppose the ZBA’s variance decision as it follows on the citizens decision and supported by the Supreme court .
