On July 31st the Barrett Zoning Board decided at their hearing that Buck Hill’s appeal to be able to sell their water is upheld. The ruling by Barrett’s Zoning Officer to not allow the sale was overturned. This decision was based on legal rationale and case law which support state Public Utility Commission regulations superseding local ordinances. The vote was 2 to 1, with Richard Price and Ralph Fish voting for the appeal to stand and Jill Shoesmith voting against.
The next step in the process will require Buck Hill Water Company to submit a development plan to both the Monroe County Planning Commission and to Barrett for review in meeting Barrett’s Subdivision Land Development ordinances. However, it is unclear if any disapprovals would be legal given the rationale for the decision described above.
