Crotched Mountain gets variance from Francestown for night lighting
“It’s one of those cases that is very emotional for everyone, and we wanted to allow everybody a chance to come and testify either in person or through writing a letter,” Pyle said.
“They really didn’t want to put the visors on, but we thought it was important,” Pyle said.
“I am glad that we did get the variance, and it’s behind us as far as the town. I think it’s good for both parties,” Terry said. “We are a bit concerned about the visors. We’re going to potentially have to add some lights. That’s what we were worried about.”
Because there is a 30-day period in which the decision could be appealed, town zoning and code officials don’t plan to follow up with Crotched Mountain on the issue for about a month, Pyle said.
