This is your reminder to attend and express your views concerning the proposed SOLAR ARRAY Field and DUNKIN DONUTS complex at the July 13 Planning Board Meeting – 7 PM Walpole Town Hall. To be discussed is the Site Plan for the installation of 1 Mega Watt Solar Array on 5-plus acres adjoining the Plaza to the south. POSTPONED is the Dunkin Site Plan.
POSTPONED — Mr. Clifford of NGP Management, has asked to postpone the continued discussion of the Route 12 Dunkin Site Plan until August. His reason is he needs more information from the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT). The Dunkin proposal has been “on the table” since February. During many meetings Clifford and his experts have had incomplete data and inadequate answers. At the May meeting, Dunkin folks stated they added an entrance on Upper Walpole Road. At the June meeting Clifford stated he was still awaiting replies from the NHDOT over congestion concerns with the traffic studies. Supposedly, according to Clifford’s representatives, NHDOT will not release accident data in this area over “privacy concerns.” A State official has stated that “privacy concerns” to withhold data is an incorrect statement.
TO BE HELD — Representatives of Revision Energy will present the Solar Array plan for applicant NGP Management LLC. As discussed in many CLARION issues, this proposal is in the wrong location, and solely for the benefit of out-of-town owners while locals have only a blight on the landscape in return. Solar energy is important, but the impact of a given location must take precedence. Plan to attend July 13 at 7 PM
