ZBA to address light issue
A Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting will be held Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the lower level of the town offices to take up Crotched Mountain Ski Area’s application for a variance to permit ski area lighting, which does not meet the standards of the town’s zoning ordinance.
According to Crotched’s General Manager Patrick Terry, the newer lights have been in place at the ski area for a year now and belong to the same lighting system as those were installed in 2002.
Terry said Monday it is possible to see the lights from quite a distance away from the ski area. Even across counties, he said, it is common for ski area lighting to be visible.
