VOTE Tuesday; WVBBTS wants your support

March 12, 2012

Tuesday, March 13 is Town Meeting and voting in Waterville Valley.  Polls will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Recreation Department’s multi-purpose room, and the deliberative session (Town Meeting) is at 3 p.m. in the same location.

WVBBTS Snowsports Educational Foundation is asking for your YES vote on a warrant article that will be voted upon at the polls.  Read their message to Waterville Valley voters, below.

WVBBTS / SEF asks for your support of the warrant article regarding our Snow’s Mountain Property.  This change, which only affects the flat part of the Snow’s Mountain Property, will allow us to operate a sports-academic institute, including the construction of modern purpose-built, gender and age specific, dormitories.  No change is currently being considered on our adjacent property.

Any future building activity on our properties, including any dormitory, will require Planning Board approval and will be done in conjunction with and after consultation with our neighbors.

WVBBTS / SEF is a 501-(c)3 nonprofit organization whose Core Values are: Integrity, Teamwork, Learning and Excellence.  We are committed to being respectful and engaged community partners in addition to being an economic driver for the Town of Waterville Valley.

    My comment is simply to remind voters that WVBBTS attempted to change the zoning on their property 6 years ago and it was pretty overwhelmingly defeated. As a (somewhat subjective) neighbor, I can see down the road that they will want to eliminate their dependence on the property where the dormitory currently sits. Once that occurs, that property could be re-zoned for low density residential with 3 lots on an acre and a half. Is mine a selfish, not-in-my-backyard point of view? Absolutely. Will it lower my property value if there are 3 houses on that land? Absolutely. When an of us purchase property in Waterville, should we believe that the town will maintain existing zoning if it threatens a neighbors’ property values? Again, I say absolutely.
