Planning Board Meeting
Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 7:00 PM
Town Hall

Pursuant to RSA 675:3 and 675:7, Notice is hereby given that the Antrim Planning Board will hold a Public Hearing on Thursday November 7, 2013 at 7:00 PM at Antrim Town Hall to present the following proposed changes to the Zoning Ordinance; and to amend a definition in the Subdivision & Site Plan Review Regulations:

  • To amend Article XIV, O. Home Occupations, by removing the references to non-resident employees.  
Explanation:  By definition, Home Occupations do not allow nonresident employees.
O.      Home Occupations: (Amended March 11, 2008)
1.      Conducted solely by resident members of the immediate family and one non-resident employee.
2.      Clearly secondary to the use of the dwelling for dwelling purposes.
3.      Not change the residential character of the dwelling in any visible manner.
4.      Not create objectionable noise, odor, vibration, smoke, dust, heat, glare, or unsightly conditions noticeable off the premises.
5.      Not create electronic interference.
6.      Not create a health or safety hazard.
7.      Not show any exterior evidence of a home occupation except for signs as permitted in Article XVII, Section D – Signs Permitted in All Districts without Permit. (Amended March 22, 2012)
8.      Provide off-street parking facilities for any employees and visitors, as provided in Article XV.
  • To amend Article XIV, O. Home Occupations, by adding the following statement:
O.     Home Occupations. (Amended March 11, 2008) Home Occupations are permitted in all districts subject to the following:
Explanation:  This amendment is simply to make clear where Home Occupations are allowed.
  • To amend Article XV, B. Parking Facilities Required, Paragraph 2. Commercial Parking, by removing “home occupations” from subparagraph p.  
Explanation:  Since Home Occupations by definition do not allow nonresident employees, there is no need to provide for parking spaces for them.
B.      Parking Facilities Required
2.   Commercial Parking:
p.      Home occupations or home-based businesses: At least two (2) parking spaces for the residence, one (1) parking space for each nonresident employee and two (2) parking spaces for patron use.
4.      To amend Article VIII – Lakefront Residential District, by removing Home Occupations and Home-Based Businesses from the list of permitted uses.  
Explanation:  Since these uses are addressed elsewhere in the ordinance, it is redundant to have them listed in this District.
5.      To amend Article VIII – Lakefront Residential District, by inserting the minimum lot frontage of 200 feet.
Explanation:  This amendment is to correct an omission that left the lot frontage out of the district requirements.

6.      To amend the definition of “Minor Subdivision” contained in Subdivision and Site Plan Review Regulations as follows:
        Minor Subdivision – A proposal that does not constitute the creation of more than two new lots or involve the construction of a road or other improvements, with no potential for further subdivision.
        Explanation:  The phrase “with no potential for further subdivision” is not consistent with state law.
Proposed amendments to the Zoning Ordinance will be ballot items to be voted on in March 2014. The “Minor Subdivision” definition amendment will be a vote of the Planning Board – after the Public Hearing.  Copies of the proposed text are available for review at Town Hall offices during business hours , Monday – Thursday, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM or on the Antrim website - website.
