Zoning Board of Adjustment

Notice of Hearing

The Sharon Zoning Board of Adjustment will meet on Tuesday, November 29, 7:00 PM at the Sharon Meeting House to consider a Request for Rehearing submitted by San-Ken Homes, Inc. 

The applicant has asked the Board to re-hear the determination that the Gridley River in the vicinity of the Applicant's property is a "navigable river," and that a 75-foot vegetated buffer from wetlands must be preserved from earth excavations incident to construction.

Sharen Resident/Property Owner Survey

The Sharon Planning Board is gathering data to be used in the development of a new Master Plan for the town.  

Much information will be drawn from the Open Space report discussed at the town picnic and again at a recent joint public meeting of the Planning Board and the Conservation Commission.  However, in addition to data and comments from the Open Space Report, it will be important to have input from as many residents and property owners as possible. To that end, the Planning Board has developed a survey to aid in gathering that data.  If you would, please take a few minutes to complete the survey.

You can take the survey from any computer that has internet access (home, work, library, etc.).  If you know of someone who does not have internet access of any sort and would prefer a hard copy, have them contact Matt Craig at 924-3858 and he will provide a copy of the survey.

A few additional notes:
  • The survey is for Sharon residents and property owners only. 
  • Space is provided for narrative comments on all of the questions.  Please feel free to use that space to expand on your answers.
  • Please take the survey only once; you cannot return to it to change your answers, so please answer fully when you take it. 
  • We will keep the survey open until Dec 31, 2011. 
Here is the link to the online version of the survey:

Town Picnic - NEW DATE


The 120th Annual Sharon Picnic
in
Willard Bass Park

Sunday, September 25, 2011

[new date is thanks to the arrival of Hurricane Irene in August ]

from Noon to 2 or thereabouts


          All residents and others interested in the Town of Sharon, New Hampshire, are cordially invited to attend the Annual Sharon Picnic, first held in 1891. In 1897 Samuel W. (Willard) Bass placed in trust a small parcel of land for the "purpose of holding thereon public picnics", and in 1933 Ruth Taggart Rice added a second parcel for the same purpose.  These parcels make up our present 1.5 acre Willard Bass Park, located in the center of Sharon on Route 123.

     At 1:00 we will have the usual notices by town officials of current happenings in Sharon.  In addition, Pete Throop, Director of the Monadnock Community Conservation Partnership (MCCP) program of the Monadnock Conservancy, will give a brief update on Sharon’s draft Open Space Plan.  During the past year, a sub-committee of the Sharon Conservation Commission, led by Pete, has written the draft plan which is based on community input and their review of the town’s natural resources maps.  A representative from the NH Fish and Game Department will then talk about the state Wildlife Action Plan and key wildlife habitats in Sharon.

          After the picnic, you are invited to hear an overview presentation on Sharon’s draft Open Space Plan and to provide input, reactions, and comments before the plan is finalized. Community participation is essential to ensuring that the plan meets the needs of the town so your thoughts will be much appreciated. 

          Some of you may have noticed the damage done to the park fence by this year’s heavy snow.  Ken Callahan has done his best to restore it, but much of it is in need of replacement.  We ask that you keep the fence in mind when you donate to the park this year.

          Bring your picnic and your lawn chair to enjoy the park, get to know your Sharon neighbors, and welcome newcomers in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.  A few contributions to the community dessert table are always welcome.  If you've never been to a Sharon Town Picnic, do come this year!  And feel free to call any of the Trustees of Willard Bass Park listed below if you have questions.

          Anne Booth     924-6425                     Ken Callahan         924-3726               Linda Claff      924-3503                      Gina Goff                924-6206

Picnic Postponed Due To Hurricane

The Annual Sharon Gathering is being postponed in the face of Irene's wrath. With luck she'll dissolve in a puff of hot air, but just in case she doesn't we wish you all to stay safe at home. A future date is yet to be determined.

A reminder of an earlier message - the Meeting House will be open to townspeople if you lose power, need a shower, or a place to cook a meal, or even sleep if you need it. The Meeting House has a generator, and when the clouds clear away, the satellite internet connection should work. Even if phones and power are down you will be able to send emails to friends/family after the storm from our WiFi network (accessible from the parking lot).

Be safe.
