HAMPSTEAD: Please Vote NO Article 6
So what is Article 6 and why are we so strongly opposed to it? This is a photo of our home. We bought it almost 4 years ago with the intention of restoring this 100 year old farm and as a place to raise our children. Article 6 will be on the ballot in Hampstead on March 12th. It was brought by citizens petition by our neighbors, Brenda and Matt Harold, after they collected 100 signatures to rezone land (including part of ours) from residential/agricultural to Commercial C1. They brought this to vote by petition after the planning board rejected their request to have this area rezoned commercial since other abutters were strongly against it and because of the harm it would do to us (as the largest parcel of land). The Harolds bought their home that has a large detached garage two years ago. At the time, they were aware that it was a residential property. They have now decided that no one should live on this end of Stage Rd anymore and that they have the right to rezone their property and the property of others to commercial.
