Council, Planning Board to meet in December
The meeting between the two boards was originally scheduled for Jan. 21, Chairman Michael Fairbanks said during a council meeting last week. But that date seemed too long to wait for Councilor Neil Wetherbee, especially in light of recent controversies involving the Dumpster Depot site plan.
A number of residents living near the proposed site of Dumpster Depot on Ashleigh Drive have expressed outrage at the possibility of the business coming to town. The residents have said that the business would lower property values, bring noise and pollution and increase rodent and mosquito activity.
Two abutters, state Rep. John O’Connor and Brenda Wilson, have stepped forward to file appeals in an effort to derail the business and keep it away from their property.
Fairbanks said he didn’t have a problem with moving the date of the meeting.
The joint meeting is now scheduled for Dec. 3.
