Since when does any applicant for any special permit have to make the building inspector happy? This is exactly what is wrong with the permit granting process in Pepperell.
It is very distrubing that elected officials are permit granting officials, because there is the obvious need to make certain people happy to ensure re-election.
So applicants in Pepperell have many people they must make happy? Or what???
When the town singles out one type of animal activity for which it is going to require site plan review, it certainly makes you wonder why? Planning Board members expressed concern about dog waste in town with out concern for other animal waste leaves me wondering what all the horse owners do with horse waste which is significantly larger than a dog's poo. Some horses in town are kept by the river and brooks of town and the waste certainly affects the natural resourses but horse owners appear to keep the local officals happy.
So what is going on in Pepperell?
