An ADMINISTRATIVE APPEAL has been submitted to the Zoning Board of Appeals by Attorney Douglas C. Deschenes, of Deschenes and Farrell, P.C., on behalf of Mass Composting Group, Inc. Appellant is seeking relief from the Town of Pepperell Zoning Board of Appeals under Sections 9000, 9200 (9223), and 10,000 (Appendix A) of the Town of Pepperell Zoning-By-Law and M.G.L. Chapter 40A, Sections 8 and 15.

Appellant is appealing the determination of the Pepperell Building Inspector in his letter dated October 9, 2018, in which he determined that Mass Composting Group’s proposed use of the property at 161 Nashua Road for a soil reclamation project would qualify as a Commercial Dumping Ground because the proposed operation would use the property as a depository of otherwise unwanted or unusable soil removed from remote construction projects, for no purpose other than the permanent storage of the material, and that under the Zoning Bylaw’s Table of Use Regulations, the proposed use is prohibited at 161 Nashua Road.

Subject property is known as 161 Nashua Road and located at 141-163 Nashua Road, Pepperell, MA, as shown on Assessor’s Map 6 as Parcel 20-0.

A public hearing will be held on this matter at the Pepperell Senior Center, 37 Nashua Road, Pepperell, MA, on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at 7:00P.M.
