All is not well between neighbors Carrie Spear and Rick Tenney. On March 9, lawyers for Carrie Spear and co-Appellants Michael Spear and 2877 Spear Street Associates, LLC, filed a Notice of Appeal in Chittenden County Superior Court to block neighbor Richard Tenney from installing a well on his property at 76 Jackson Hill Road.
In East Charlotte, two permits stand at an impasse. Richard Tenney got one to build a new well. Carrie Spear needs one to add septic to her store. There is only room for one of them, and it’s not clear who will get what they want.
Back before the Zoning Board of Adjustment last Wednesday, Carrie Spear, owner of Spear’s Corner Store and on behalf of Court Street Associates, along with project manager Dan Goltzman, presented their application for a conditional use permit to construct an apartment above and add a deli inside her already-existing store.
A conflict that crosses board boundaries in town has ignited planning and zoning, personnel, and public meeting conflicts. The issues center around an application considered two weeks ago by the Zoning Board of Adjustment.
“One of the things is trying not to worry and to keep a positive spirit when they come into the store. Other than that, I’m washing the door and counter, definitely,” Carrie Spear, owner of Spear’s Store, said.
