Hooksett housing project granted extension on conditional approval


HOOKSETT ­— A proposed multifamily housing project was granted a one-year extension on its conditional approval.

The Harmony Place project has until October of next year to check off the remaining requirements before the plan can be officially approved. Once that happens, construction can start on the 63-unit development off Route 3 at 1621 Hooksett Road.

Developers asked for the extension as a precaution.

“We’re now really close to pulling a building permit,” said Jennifer McCourt of McCourt Engineering Associates, PLLC in Henniker. “I’d like the year to make sure that it gets done. I think it’s going to be a lot shorter than a year but I can't guarantee anything.”

Most of the conditions have already been met. The last deals with a $150,000 donation to the town to help with drainage issues in the Beauchesne Drive neighborhood — money that should cover about half the cost of work done in the area.

Conditional approval for the project was granted last October after a tie vote temporarily halted the plans. The board declined to completely reject the plan during that meeting so project managers were able to come back at another meeting for another vote, where they were granted the conditional approval.

The board has denied an increase to 76 units for the project as a way to maintain the value of the apartments.
