DERRY — Councilors are scheduled Tuesday night in their regular meeting to revisit a request to release a section of a right-of-way
A vote on a request by two Schurman Drive residents for the town to release the section of right-of-way was postponed last month.
David and Rebecca Zbieg, of 17 Schurman Drive, made the request to release the “paperless street.” They plan to build a garage on their section of the property, according to officials.
But after some discussion, councilors agreed to postpone the vote until they receive a letter from abutters Jonathan and Melissa Turcotte of 15 Schurman Drive. The Turcottes weren’t present at the meeting and had not submitted anything in writing giving their consent to the release of right-of-way, according to officials.
Councilors will also discuss scheduling a public hearing on a proposed Community Development Block Grant application to the New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority for up to $500,000. The funds would finance water system improvements at Centennial Estates Manufactured Housing Cooperative. The cooperative is a 57-unit manufactured housing park at 211 Bypass Route 28.
Councilors are also scheduled to hold a public hearing on proposed amendments to the town zoning ordinance relating to signs. The proposed amendments address a variety of proposed regulation changes to signs in town.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Derry Municipal Center.
