The Claremont Speedway’s proposed RV campground may be moving forward after much deliberation, or not, pending a decision in early October.
Claremont’s Zoning Board of Adjustment announced this week that, according to The Valley News, they have all the information they need in order to decide on a variance request for the proposed seasonal campground on Thrasher Road.
The site is located within a rural residential zone and would need a variance to allow for its installation. However, residents, mainly those who live near the proposed site, are continuing to offer their feedback opposing the development, mainly regarding water supply and the noise level.
City officials visited the site in mid-summer to get the lay of the land and determine its suitability. The campsite, which will host 149 spots, will be rented on a seasonal basis, summer or winter, and short term rentals will not be accepted.
If the plan is approved by the Zoning Board on October 3rd, the Planning Board will also need to approve it in order for the development to ultimately move forward.
