BARNSTEAD — During its meeting on Thursday, May 1, the Barnstead Planning Board approved a site plan for a new pizza shop in town and approved a two-lot subdivision on Holmes Road.

Sean Dunne and Rick Burley came before the board to present a site plan for Patriot Pizza, which will be located in the area of the old ski shack on Route 28, in the building formerly housing the Surf Shack.

Dunne explained that 10 parking spaces will be made available and orders will mostly carryout and delivery to start, but more seating could be added in the future.

Dunne said hours on Mondays through Thursday would be from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m., hours on Fridays and Saturdays would be extended until 10 p.m. and hours on Sundays would be until 6 or 8 p.m. and this would dependent on the volume of orders coming in.

There was some concern about the dumpster on the property from abutters, and Burley said the dumpster could be emptied weekly.

The board unanimously approved the site plan for Patriot Pizza.

Paul Zuzgo came before the board to speak on behalf of Timothy and John Sullivan about a two-lot subdivision at 238 Holmes Road. Zuzgo explained that the 57-acre parcel would be subdivided into two lots.

Zuzgo explained the need to get several waivers approved, which the board approved.

The board added language stating that if any further subdivision occurred or building occurred a topographical, wetlands and contours would have to be provided on the plans. The board unanimously approved the subdivision with above stipulation added to the motion.

Member Bruce Grey talked about the school board's refusal to meet with the selectmen about discussing the Hannah Nutter property and using it for the removal of sand and gravel. He stated that both boards want to be in charge on the issue, and that is a problem.

Member Kathy Preston asked to be removed from the Space Needs Committee and Elaine Swinford will replace her on this committee as the planning board representative.

The board approved the minutes from the April 3 and 17 meetings.

Chair Nancy Carr acknowledged David Allen as a candidate for an alternate on the board and said this was his second meeting that he attended.

The next scheduled meeting of the Barnstead Planning Board is a work session on Thursday, May 15, at 7 p.m. at the Barnstead Town Hall.
