A Hinsdale (Massachusetts) board is set to decide later today whether Camp Emerson will become part of a chain of national RV parks.
According to a report, if declined, Northgate Resort Ventures LLC—like all applicants—is entitled to appeal. The company has already exercised this right before.
During public comments on November 30 at the Hinsdale Zoning Board of Appeals, one of the speakers mentioned the legal battle Northgate initiated in New Hampshire when the town of Milton denied the request by the company via an affiliate LLC.
Northgate requested to grant a special exemption to increase the size of the RV park from 223 to 396 spots on Northeast Pond near the Maine border. The New Hampshire town then decided that the project could be dangerous to drivers and pedestrians.
Safety concerns for traffic have been discussed in Hinsdale too. The concerns were evident in the comments made at public meetings this year and within the 422 pages of letters submitted by those who oppose the project.
The Hinsdale ZBA will convene at 6:30 p.m. today (Tuesday) at the Nessacus Regional Middle School auditorium. The meeting will also be streamed via Zoom.
