Pelham Planning Board seeks approval of overlay district
The proposed town operating budget of $13,423,831 is only about $120,000 more than last year's approved budget of $13,310,525.
The Planning Board is asking voters to approve the creation of a mixed-use overlay district for the town center.
The mixed-use district would help create a more pedestrian-friendly mix of residential and business uses in the town's center district.
Allowed uses within the district would include professional, medical, and financial offices, bakeries, family entertainment, and other small-scale retail establishments and uses that are traditionally found in New England town centers.
The boundaries of the proposed district would be Beaver Brook to the east, the intersection of Beaver Brook and Windham Road to the north, the intersection of Nashua Road and Tenney Road to the west, and all lots with frontage on Acorn and Old Bridge Streets to the south.
A second proposed Planning Board amendment would changed the amount of horizontal separation needed between structures in the senior and elderly housing district based upon the number of units in each structure. Currently, 30 feet of separation is required between each structure.
In the Planning Board amendment, detached single-unit structures would require 20 feet of separation, structures with two units would require 30 feet, and structures with three or more units would require 40 feet of separation.
