Heard around the Town...Selectmen plan to lift Cease & Desist Order!!

ARTICLE SUBMISSION

Selectmen are going to lift the cease and desist order!

We are hearing that the selectmen plan to lift the cease and desist order against the Osborns. The reasons apparently have to do with our Town Counsel again.

So far the story is that because they have not completed the work on their house within the year prescribed by the "waiver of liability agreement" signed by the town and the Osborn's, the town is taking the position that their violation of that provision of the agreement negates the entire agreement.

How ignorant is this reasoning? The Town had the Osborn's agree to certain conditions in order to obtain their building permit. They have violated every one of those conditions and now the town's position is going to be that they can't do anything because the Osborn's violations had the effect of negating the agreement?

So why do we have building and zoning codes if the town is going to selectively enforce them? Why should anyone go through the permitting process if the town is impotent to enforce those codes?

In this situation there is a house built on the lake that has violated building codes, is being lived in without an occupancy certificate, has been built BIGGER than was permitted, has a driveway that is laid across someone else's property, and has involved unpermitted excavation, AND the town STILL does not have accurate plans that the house has been built from, nor does it have engineered plans for this new driveway construction!

But the Town isn't going to enforce ANY of these regulations! And they wonder why we think this town's government is corrupt?

What exactly does this mean for all the work that the Osborns are doing?

Common sense would say if the agreement is negated, that the house and all the work would be forced to cease. Then again, when is common sense followed in Atkinson?

If the BOS does nothing then our town government will descend once again into being no more than pitiful joke of a government, and Atkinson once again becomes the most embarrassing town to live in around So NH.

Cronyism in this town is already rampant; the bias towards business concerns and insiders has reached such a level of blatant disregard for the desires of the ordinary citizens that I think this may actually be the last straw for many people in town.

Harold Morse gets deliveries for East Coast Lumber at the Lewis Homes land IN BLATANT DISREGARD of the submitted use of that land (which means tractor-trailer loads of lumber going through residential neighborhoods), he pumps our own water out from under us, former ZBA members build houses any damn way they want in defiance of local and state ordinances and agreements, our police chief arrests and harrasses anyone that dare speak out against him (and harasses people that sign petitions against his interests with the implied threat that they'll go on his enemies list), our selectmen sit by the whole time and don't do a damned thing...

How long until enough of us get embarassed about this and actually DO SOMETHING? Do we stand by forever while 3 or 4 people actually take the heat for standing up to these people in our stead or do we find the courage to start going to town meetings ourselves and start having our voices heard?

Before everyone gets their collective panties in a bunch, if the C&D order does get lifted, find out the real reason why. The Osborn's lawyer indicated that the C&D order as written wouldn't be able to stand up in court. Better to remove it than to open yourself up for a lawsuit for an illegal order. There are other methods of enforcement including not granting an occupancy permit, etc. It's important that this be handled correctly by the town. I saw no indication from Bill Friel and the rest of the board that they were in any way being complicit with what the Osborn's were doing. Nor, for that matter, was Mike Murphy. I don't see how you could have watched that meeting and come away with anything else.

If the submitters take the time to offer a valid argument, and type it in a manner so we that don't have to strain to read it, they would not get harassed. The posting you refer to looks like it was written by an 8 year old.

October 23, 2009 9:23 AM gets it. This entire topic is based on a rumor and virtually every responder has gone flying off handle assuming the worst. October 23, 2009 9:56 AM is exactly what I'm talking about. Nothing but a rant.

This topic is what it is, a rumor with no facts to substantiate it. I have faith our BOS will do the right thing, for the right reasons.

So, cool your jets and vile and trying waiting for some real news, not something overheard at the Village Store. You have a question for the BOS, their number is in the book. They are not going to answer any questions from anyone here, of that you can be sure.

Anonymous said...

How, exactly, anon @ 9:56 am I spouting like I know it all? I watched the meeting. I recall what the Osborn's lawyer said. If he is correct, and the C&D order was not issued properly, then the correct coarse of action is to remove it and reissue it if there is legal standing to do so. I want our BOS operating within the legal bounds of the law. Don't you?

With regards to your question on illegal occupancy, you need to ask the BOS that. I will not speak for them. I do not know if this has been reported, nor do I know what the enforcement tools are that would be available if this is indeed the case. I would encourage you to speak to the BOS directly. Complaining to this blog is not, I repeat, is not going to get you anywhere other than possibly having a forum to vent.

In my humble opinion this is one giant clusterf--- of mistakes on all sides. Town Counsel screwed up, BOS screwed up, Fire Chief screwed up, Building Dept screwed up, Osborns screwed up, EVERYBODY messed this whole thing up. Like it or not you'll never be able to point at one party and give them 100% of the blame even if you think its all the Osborns they have some valid points no matter how you look at it. Their neighbors should provide facts and stop whining so damn much. FACTS people. We need FACTS. As someone once said GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. Whining on a blog does nothing. And you'll never pin this all on one party. Its a group screw up. I'm tired of the spin and still waiting to see and hear all the facts.

Question still stands.

Why is occupancy allowed without a permit? Whose allowing it and responsible?

Anonymous said...

Answer still stands. Report it to the BOS. If it hasn't been reported, then your implication that someone is "allowing" it is incorrect. Why are you posting this question on the blog? Why aren't you interacting with our town officials? They were elected by us to represent us. They can't represent you if you fail to interact with them.

Do you think your postings on the blog are productive? Do you think somehow your posts are going to produce your desired outcome? I'm starting to believe that people just want a place to vent and they really don't want to do anything about their issues. Stop complaining and stand up for yourself. It's the only real way to have your issues addressed.

It is statements like yours that make many town officials ignore the Blog. It is comments like these that have made this blog a hollow shell of its former self.

It isn't that they win, but the town insurance company attornies spend unbelievable amounts of time and money, peeling away and delaying cases, until they have managed through the judicious use of technicalities to rob the plaintiff's of their day in Court. The cases that go to court, they settle, after spending a year or so spending time and money to file motions. Tens of thousands of dollars have been wasted in this fashion keeping our police chief and former selectmen out of the hot seat. They have never had a clear wim in court.

Dear Atkinson Reporter,

You have made allegations of "violated codes" what facts do you have to back up your claims? Can you please tell us where to find these violated codes.

1. Bigger than permiited? - can you tell use where to find the building size code? Other than no higher than 35 feet. Didn't know there was a size code?

2. Proof that there are not rights to build a driveway. What does the deed say? How do you back up this claim?

3. What unpermitted excavation? What permit are they missing? Where do you get that permit?

4. Engineered plans for driveway. Can you site the building code that you need engineered plan to construct the driveway? By the way didn't the Fire Chief have engineered plans from them, but said they were not good enough for him. Where is the written code for that.

You complain that the BOS can't enforce the building and zoning codes. What codes are you asking to be enforced. What good is your reporting for the blog if you can't back up your claims with facts.

I would appreciate some clarification on your article?

If true then it is simply because they like a good laugh, nothing more.

Scared of the Blog! That is the biggest joke of all. It does not in any way, shape or form represent public opinion of the general population. It is run by a couple of busy bodies who remind me of the mob that could not shoot straight, and largely contributed to by a bunch of armchair quarterbacks who have opinions about most everything, but can't get off their fat asses and do something about it.

Example - constant questions of why the BOS is doing or not doing something. The number of town hall is posted on the towns web site, and all the BOS members have listed phone numbers. Don't bitch here, CALL THEM.

Scared of the blog. Excuse me while I catch my breath from laughing so hard.

The Blog is not about facts just unfounded complaints about our town. The Editor does not live in Atkinson. He has moved but still enjoys trying to have some power-so he thinks in Atkinson.

Hey Maggie, I'll handle this one;

1.) You got a variance to allow you to build a bigger house than would normally be allowed for that lot, and you have exceeded THAT! You were given a building permit for 48' of width, your foundation is 50' and you have a 2' overhang from that. And your permit does nto mention the living space you have created above the garage, does it?

2.) Your DEED says "including a right of way from town class V road to all said lots". There is already a ROW accessing those lots that has been in use for 70 years. NOWHERE in YOUR deed does it allow you to lay a SECOND ROW across Mrs. Davis land.

3.)Any excavation within the town is subject to the permit process.

4.)Maggie called it a "driveway/fire rd.". Chief Murphy told her that he needed engineered plans before he could approve that and waive the need to sprinkle. He needed to be certain it could hold the weight of the fire truck, and the slope would allow truck passage. He still hasn't received those. He stated monday all he has received are the "elevations" or drawings.

Maggie if this is the best you can do, you should pack it in now.

I just love it when "Anonymous" is referred to as a single person.

Let's see, so far "Anonymous" has been
-Frank
-Jack
-Harold
-Phil
-Maggie
-Zombie
-Leon
-etc, etc, etc.

Say, speaking of Leon, that subject has been surprising quiet. First he claims his freedom of speech has been violated and we hear about it for almost a year. Then, he's arrested. Now, normally, that should have created such an uproar that everyone in town should have gotten a summons to appear.

But, what, the subject suddenly dies. Maggie cuts down a few trees and it is WWIII. Leon gets arrested and its, well, let's see, no, not a big thing really.

It is all very confusing you see. First, he's being oppressed and WILL BE AVENGED. And then, a "Federal" judge thinks differently, dismisses the case, and shortly afterward is arrested.

A little claim of payback is spouted, but then nothing.

Could it be, possibly, even remotely, it was justified and the blog is suddenly embarrassed to admit it???

How can this be? A man is out there fighting for our rights, has supposedly the best lawyer is the state on it, gets his case dismissed without ever seeing the light of jury, and is then arrested?

What is going on here? Did the laws of physics just get violated, or perhaps our great savior is suddenly not so great and the blog owners are trying to hide it.

Just curious. What is the real story here?

You know, we will find out eventually. So, Mr. Heard Around Town, what have you heard to that we can immediately dismiss it as factual?

Curt Springer said...

You all know I am not from Atkinson and I have not been on Valcat Road although I have driven by it on Chase Island Road.

That said, here is a sincere attempt to address the questions that were raised:

1. Bigger than permiited? - can you tell use where to find the building size code? Other than no higher than 35 feet. Didn't know there was a size code?

--Perhaps Tim D could confirm my hunch that the building size is connected to the shorelands protection act, which essentially requires a site plan for residential construction in shoreland areas. I know a little about this because my family owns some shoreland property and we have consulted with a landscape architect who has done projects for other people.

A big thing is minimizing the amount of impermeable areas where rain won't go straight down into the ground. This includes buildings, driveways, patios, etc. You are supposed to have no more than 40% (I think), otherwise you have to get waivers. So you do get a permit to build according to your plan, which shows your house being a specific size. If you build it bigger, you are out of compliance with your permit.

2. Proof that there are not rights to build a driveway. What does the deed say? How do you back up this claim?

-- This will only be resolved by a judge. See Plan 24311. On the one hand, the ROW is shown on the plan and was in the deed when Carol Davis bought her property. On the other hand, there never was a road or driveway there until now, and just because a ROW was reserved, it doesn't necessarily follow that a particular party (Osborn) has a right to use it. Also the plan and deed do not acknowledge the actual ROW that is in use across her property, so it is somewhat suspect as depicting the complete situation.

3. What unpermitted excavation? What permit are they missing? Where do you get that permit?

-- I think that this is the waiver agreement between the Osborns and the town where they agreed not to make changes to Valcat Road (lane?) without the selectmen's permission. But this was based on Valcat being a Class 6 (public unmaintained) road. If this is actually a private road, which seems to be the case, then this part of the agreement is meaningless because the selectmen have no authority over private roads.

4. Engineered plans for driveway. Can you site the building code that you need engineered plan to construct the driveway? By the way didn't the Fire Chief have engineered plans from them, but said they were not good enough for him. Where is the written code for that.

-- I couldn't find the zoning ordinance etc on your town web site, not that it might not be there someplace.

You do need some sort of documentation where the end of the driveway connects to the town road, in any case.

In this case, the need for an engineering plan is tied to a waiver for a sprinkler system. Danville requires sprinklers for all new construction. Atkinson has some sort of waiver that can apply based on road access. The town needs to sign off that a fire truck could actually travel over the road/driveway to the residence, based on width, slope and turning angles.

"do you OR the osbors offer ANY prroof that Mr. Artus tried to "run them down" with his car?

There were witnesses that it wasn't true when she said it of Mrs. Davis' kid."

What I think or what proof I may or may not have has absolutely no bearing on the question.

Our hero is arrested and given the hyperbole we were subjected to for months on how justice would prevail, one would normally believe that if he was subject to a false arrest that is all we'd be hearing about.

Think of the opportunities to level a whole new set of claims against the chief. This is priceless material.

But yet, nothing. I believe for what we had to put up with for the last year we are owed some explanations. Or is suddenly the truth an inconvenience?

To anon@October 25, 2009 3:01 PM

I'm not a lawyer and I haven't made any study of real estate cases.

With respect to the rights of property owners to use Valcat, I'm sure they have rights. Who could possibly defend the Osborns for cutting off their road access, if that is the case. My only point is that if Valcat is not a Class 6 road, it is not a public matter.

Regarding the validity of the new ROW, I agree it is questionable. My non-expert take from reading about various cases that have been of interest to me for one reason or another is that the judge will not necessarily follow what might seem like the only clear path to you or me. So it will likely go to court and the judge will decide one way or the other. I'm not going to place bets.

It is at least possible that the parties could reach an agreement to open the new ROW in exchange for closing the current one.

CS - You have to look at the Stowers plan of 1925. that is the plann that lays out Valcat and isthe record plan for the ROW's to lots of interest.

Curt Springer said...

I agree, I wish I could get to the plan online.

It is unfortunate that the late 20th century plans I have quoted on this site have significant omissions. The VALente-CATalano plan shows a paper ROW and omits the actual one that passes through Davis's property, and this plan completely omits Valcat, even though it shows 2 axles where Valcat enters 22-46, which I assume mark the edges of the physical road.

I suspect that these surveys contributed to the statements and actions of the Osborns. You or I or Tim can say they are wrong, but our opinions carry no weight. Either there will be an agreement with Davis (unlikely), or it will go before a judge.

Are the Osborn's rich by chance? Is it possible that they will end up going bankrupt over this?

Anon 10:16 AM, why don't you focus on the topic of this blog article and stop correcting people's spelling and grammar? Many of us on this post care about the town and issues that are going on. We may not always agree on things but we should respect each other's opinions and not stoop to insults.

Seems to me that you have a hair across your ass about something and are trying to feel better by taking your frustrations out on someone else. Let's move on from this.

"Leon was arrested out of revenge and pay back nothing more nothing less."

Pay back for what? He had his highly touted lawsuit dismissed. Given the hype, that would seem to be very embarrassing for him. Why the need for payback on this one.

As for the Osborn's: Seems like she has no friends on the BOS given their performance last week. What payback could there be here?

Sorry to persist, but this one does not add up. If it were payback certainly he would be speaking out against it, profusely. Yet, eerie silence.

He stuck himself in the middle of this mess and made front page news here when I tried to sandbag the BOS. Now, all of the sudden, the tap has gone dry. Just wanna know why.

Anon 12:39 PM, you shouldn't assume that all hte people on this blog just complain and are not active in the town. That may be the case for some, but I can happily say that the assumption does not apply to me. :)

OK, lets get serious for moment.

I'm a terrible speller. If it were not for spell checkers my stuff would look like real crap, rather than made up crap.

But, as far as grammar goes, the simple fact is that if you want to convey your thoughts effectively, you have to make easy to read. When the spelling, punctuation and grammar get to the point you have to decipher what the author is trying to say, most of the meaning is already lost.

I feel for October 25, 2009 6:28 PM, but it is a hard read.

No, I'm not the spelling, punctuation, or capitalization cop. But using those tools we learned from elementary school up is far more pleasing to the eye, wouldn't you agree?

The spelling and grammar critic wants you to feel reluctant to write. Ignore it and write.

This is a "BLOG" not a spelling quiz. You really need to grow up. It's getting old.

So my question is, has the Cease & Desist order been lifted ? And on what grounds?

Anonymous said...

No one knows ?

Nah. I'd rather not grow up and get old. Thanks for the offer though.

The beef here is with the lack of a capital W at the beginning of your sentence.

This sentence is a statement, therefore it should be ended with a period not a question mark.

So this means what exactly ? Does this mean they are back in business? Ok so i am making an educated guess that the C&D was lifted. And they must have got there occupancy permit to. It looks to me as they are living there ,lights on at 10 pm ,cars parked there at night. You can see it from the top of Hemlock Heights. Now that all the trees are gone. Don't need to worry about the AFD OR APD not being able to find your house. You can see it as clear as day. Even if you don't want to. It sticks out like a sore thumb.

Careful. Some here get very incensed when you point out their lack of command of their mother tongue.

When it is someone with whom English is a second language, that I can understand. But it sure does make you wonder how some of these folks made it through high school, of course, assuming they did.

Hey, Mr. Heard around the Town. Heard any juicy tidbits with that water glass of yours up against the wall?
