The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM.

Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 1, as proposed by the Goffstown Planning Board, amending the Goffstown Zoning Ordinance – GLOSSARY, by deleting the current definition of “Buffer” in its entirety and replacing it with the following definition: “Buffer - An area within a property or site generally adjacent to and parallel with the property line, either consisting of natural existing vegetation or created by the use of trees, shrubs, fences, and/or berms, designed to limit continuously the view of and/or sound from the site to adjacent sites or properties.”?

[This amendment is intended to create a more appropriate definition for “Buffer” which currently does not exist.]

Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 2, as proposed by the Goffstown Planning Board, amending the Goffstown Zoning Ordinance – Section 7.2.2, Parking Requirements for Uses Not Listed, Section 7.6.1, Table of Off-Street Loading Requirements, and Section 10.3.1, Conditional Use Permit Required, by deleting the title “Planning and Zoning Administrator” and replacing it with the title “Planning and Economic Development Director?” All other use of the title “Planning and Zoning Administrator” throughout the Zoning Ordinance shall be replaced with the title “Zoning Code Enforcement Officer.”

[This amendment is intended as housekeeping to reflect a reorganization in Town Hall in the Planning and Zoning Department. There are references throughout the Zoning Ordinance to a title that no longer exists.]

Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 3, as proposed by the Goffstown Planning Board, amending the Goffstown Zoning Ordinance – GLOSSARY, by inserting the following bold italicized words to the current definition of “Junk?” “Unregistered motor vehicles no longer intended or in condition for legal use on the public highways; used parts of motor vehicles or old iron, metal, glass, paper, cordage, or other waste or discarded or second-hand material which has been a part, or intended to be a part, of any motor vehicle; or any machinery, scrap metal or other worn out, cast off, or discarded articles or materials ready for destruction or collected or stored for salvage or conversion to same use. Junk shall also include any worn out or discarded materials including but not necessarily limited to construction material, household wastes, including garbage, discarded appliances, and discarded consumer electronic devices. Any article or material which unaltered or unchanged and without further reconditioning can be used for its original purpose as readily as when new, shall not be

considered junk. Waste or discarded material, which may be treated or prepared to be used again in another form shall not be considered junk.”

[This amendment is intended to create a more substantive definition for “Junk.”]

Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 4, as proposed by the Goffstown Planning Board, amending the Goffstown Zoning Ordinance – Section 3.8. Nuisances and Hazards, by adding the words in bold italics to Section 3.8.1 as follows: “No use may be made of any lot that may:

  • Become an excessive annoyance or nuisance to other properties by reason of unsightliness or the excessive emission of odors, dust, fumes, smoke, noise, heat, or glare, or excessive accumulation of junk.”?

[This amendment is intended to clarify and be more in keeping with historic practice of applying this section in order to determine if a junk violation exists.]

Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 5, as proposed by the Goffstown Planning Board, amending the Goffstown Zoning Ordinance, GLOSSARY, by adding a definition for Warehouse as follows: “Warehouse – A building where raw material or manufactured goods may be stored before their export or distribution for sale.”?

[This amendment is intended to add a definition for “Warehouse” which currently does not exist.]

Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 6, as proposed by the Goffstown Planning Board, amending the Goffstown Zoning Ordinance by Deleting the word “Service” in all references to “Self Service Storage Facilities?”

[This amendment is intended as housekeeping to be consistent with a more common reference to this type of facility.]

Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 7, as proposed by the Goffstown Planning Board, amending the Goffstown Zoning Ordinance, Section 5.1. “Accessory Buildings and Facilities,” by deleting the words “and Facilities?”

[This amendment is intended as housekeeping to make it clearer.]

Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 8, as proposed by the Goffstown Planning Board, amending the Goffstown Zoning Ordinance, Section 6.3.4. by deleting the words with a strikethrough and adding the words in bold italics as follows: “Incidental Directional signs on private property, not exceeding four (4) square feet each, where to identify parking spaces, loading areas, stacking lanes, entry and exit drives, drive-through windows or pedestrian ways exist. Directional Signs may include a business logo that is incidental and subordinate to the primary purpose of the sign.”?

[This amendment is intended to allow a business logo on directional signs.]

Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 9, as proposed by the Goffstown Planning Board, amending the Goffstown Zoning Ordinance, Section 14.6.3., Status of Uses Authorized by Special Exception or Conditional Use Permit by deleting the words with a strikethrough as follows: “Any use in lawful existence at the time of passage or amendment, which would thereafter require a Special Exception or Conditional Use Permit under its terms, shall without further action be deemed a conforming use. Any enlargement or replacement of such use, in buildings, or on land, shall require a Special Exception or Conditional Use Permit as indicated in Section 3.10, Table of Principal Uses, as though it were a new use.”?

[This amendment is intended as housekeeping to remove language determined to be unnecessary.]

Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 10, as proposed by the Goffstown Planning Board, amending the Goffstown Zoning Ordinance, Section 14.9.1. Repairs and Maintenance, by adding the words in bold italics as follows: “On any Non-conforming Structure or portion of a structure containing a Non-conforming Use, ordinary repairs and maintenance on such structures, beyond the in-kind replacement of decks, porches, steps, and chimneys, may be conducted, provided that:”?

[This amendment is intended to allow the replacement of existing decks, porches, steps, and chimneys in the exact same footprint so as to avoid having to comply with current setback requirements.]

Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 11, as proposed by registered voters of the Town of Goffstown, to amend the Official Zoning Map of the Town of Goffstown by rezoning a portion of the following parcels of land which are currently split-zoned between the CIFZ Zoning District and the Agricultural Zoning District to have the entire lots in the CIFZ District: Tax Map 26-10A, 26-10, 26-9 and 26-12? The combined area sought to be rezoned has an area of approximately 1.11 acres and would result in Henry Bridge Road forming the boundary between the Agricultural and CIFZ Districts.

[This proposed amendment was submitted by petition.]
