Derry Dumpster Depot abutters score win with appeal
ZBA members voted, 5-0, to grant the appeal of State Rep. John O'Connor, causing the crowd attending the hearing in the Derry Municipal Center to erupt into applause.
In granting the appeal, Virr said the board considered voluminous materials submitted by O'Connor and heard significant testimony from other abutters.
A number of neighbors stepped forward in recent weeks to back the appeal.
O'Connor has said the business isn't appropriate for the area and will diminish property values.
Dumpster Depot owner David Paul has said he understands residents living near the proposed facility don't want it in their back yard, but that it is allowed in the industrial-zoned section.
