Upon Petition of Helena and Burley Barthell and at least and twenty-five (25) registered voters of the Town of Hampton, New Hampshire, to see if the Town will vote to modify restriction #5 in that Deed recorded at Book 5772, Page 1928 for two lots located at 33 and 35 Dover Avenue shown as Lots 145 and 146 on Tax Map 296 (formerly Lots 211 and 212 on Map 104) to permit each of the lots to be sold separately upon the condition that each have a deeded right of access to Dover Avenue and to authorize and direct the Town Clerk to execute and deliver to the owners of said lot a notice recorded at the Rockingham County Registry of Deeds at no cost to the Town? (Majority vote required).
What it means: This is an example of a property that was a town-leased lot and was sold along with deed restrictions, in this case preventing the selling of the lot as two lots.
Those in favor say: Each lot meets or very nearly meets the required minimum lot size requirements. The owners must still get sign-offs from the town boards and departments in order to proceed with the lot division.
Those against say: No one spoke against this article at the Deliberative Session.
Fiscal Impact: No tax impact.
