The issue began after the ZBA granted the Marina's owner, Ossipee Realty Corporation and its principal, Kevin Price, a special exception in 1997 to construct two new boat storage buildings.
...In September, 2003, the Marina's principal, Kevin Price, trustee of an entity called Harts Mountain Trust, was granted conditional approval by the town of Ossipee for a variance to construct a 100' by 50' showroom with 16 parking spaces, and two two-story 200' by 50' boat storage buildings on 10 acres of land on Route 16.
A variance was required because the property is zoned rural and the proposed use is commercial.The property has a billboard on it advertising Ossipee Lake Marina.
In granting the variance for commercial use, Ossipee's zoning board stipulated that there be no deed restrictions on the property, that exposed surfaces be well maintained, and that the color of the building be neutral and the roof not be reflective.Additionally, Price
was directed to paint the building every five years and the town zoning officer was directed to review compliance every five years. (1.9.04)
