Woodmont Commons Presents Land Use to Planning Board

On January 9, 2013, members of the Londonderry Planning Board and the general public gathered for a continuation meeting focused on the development of Woodmont Commons. The meeting included in-depth analysis of Pillsbury Realty’s land use briefing document, involving a presentation, Planning Board and public commentary and discussion of aspects of the document.

    These people are doing nothing but putting a sales pitch disguised as a dog and pony show, and our Planning Board should be embarrassed by the way they are handling the whole situation. Our Planning Board just sits there and ignores the issues that have been raised by the tax payers. Why don’t they just rubber stamp their approval already, and get it over with? It appears to be headed there any way.

    But just a thought here. Before we blindly approve an artist rendering, have Woodmont kick in $1.3 million in “impact fees” that we can use to re-pay the “impact fees” we took illegally and will need to repay. At least get something out of this whole process.

    Woodmont is pushing the exit 4A deal too. They should pay for that IN FULL if they want it. The exit would serve no purpose other than to feed their little fantasy village. Why should we pay for it?

    And all these road upgrades they are “suggesting” to the town in order to feed their shopping mall should be funded by them IN FULL.

    This whole thing has been a sham since the beginning.

      Actually Mac, 4A has been bantered about for decades, well before Woodmont. We, meaning Londonderry, are on the hook for $5 million towards the construction of it, as is Derry. As of today, 4A is approved, but not funded by the state.

      As for the road “presentation” by Woodmont, I think this is nothing but a delay tactic. the longer they can avoid addressing the issues raised by abutters, the less time will remain to discuss those issues prior to approving the “artist rendering” of the emerald city. The only saving grace is that at my age, I probably won’t be living here when it starts to affect my neighborhood.
