DUNBARTON BOARD OF ASSESSORS
MINUTES OF MEETING
Present: Brian Little, Chairman
Bryan Clark (to fill vacant seat of Rhoda Hendly through March, 2002)
Linda L. Peters, Secretary
Brian Little, Chairman, called the meeting to order.
appointment of the evening was with Mary Nicoloro. Mrs. Nicoloro has four adjoining lots in the
Gorham Pond area. She purchased the
fourth lot approximately a year ago. At
the time of the purchase, she signed a paper stating she would not build on the
third lot. She has no intention of
building a house on this lot, however, would like to be able to erect a
carport, gazebo, or similar building.
Brian Little suggested she look into annexing
the four lots into one. The question of
building should be brought before the Dunbarton Zoning Board and Brian offered
to arrange for Mrs. Nicoloro to meet with them and provide her with any
paperwork she would need for such a meeting.
Tim Terragni suggested a “model” be created to show Mrs. Nicoloro what
the cost would be if the four lots were annexed. The Board could not speculate as to whether
it would be cost effective for Mrs. Nicoloro to take this route.
appointment of the evening was with Kevin McDevitt regarding the valuation of
his gravel pit (lot # H2-02-06a). He
felt it was not fair to value it as an industrial property as the pit area
cannot be built on because of the flood easement and because it is not
accessible two months a year due to spring road closures. He loses revenue from the gravel pit when the
road is closed. The Board explained they
must assess according to State rules governing gravel pits and explained the
procedure they used to value the land.
Mr. McDevitt explained that the gravel pit is in the easement but the
entire lot is not. According to survey
results 13.3 acres are active pit area.
The Town showed 17.48 acres. The Board reviewed the survey results
provided by Mr. McDevitt and considered the impact of the road closure. The Board voted to accept the correction of
the open pit from 17.48 to 13.3 acres.
They voted to change the assessment from $288,400 to $214,500 effective

It was noted that January 12 had been designated as the day residents could schedule an appointment for appeals and that no appointments were requested for that date.
The Board received a letter from Linda Kennedy regarding the gravel pit assessments for McDevitt ($ 288,400) and Belanger ($ 49,500). The Board was instructed to sign the form if they did not change the assessments. The Board did not sign because of the change to the McDevitt assessment.
Current use penalty for Mare Nazare (Arthur Beaudet) (E7-1-6): The motion was made to assess the lot at $39,000 for current use purposes. All were in favor. (Allowances were made for the right-of-way impact on the lot.) The current use penalty will be $3,900.
