Enfield — Voters were deciding seven zoning amendments on Tuesday, but as of 11 p.m., results were still not available because the town had to print additional paper ballots and count them by hand.
Town Planner Scott Osgood said last month that all zoning amendments are just “technical” changes that bring consistency and add definitions.
The articles call for numerous alterations in the zoning ordinance, including changing the definition of abutter to a property owner whose land is within 200 feet of another property owner’s and changing and adding definitions for the terms street, driveway, subdivision major and subdivision minor.
The amendments also add requirements for recreational vehicles in the Route 4 district and add setback requirements to water and wetlands in the Route 4 district.
Holly Plumley West ran as a write-in candidate for budget committee against Annabelle Bamforth, Gayle Hulva and Mike Lorrey for three open positions. There were no other contested races.
Voting on the town’s budget and all other warrant articles will take place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 15 at the Enfield Elementary Village School.
