Mr. Branon said the site plan application that was presented for MBP Management Group to build a Dunkin building that had been submitted in the last couple of months met all the requirements of Walpole’s site plan and should be approved. The lot now has 70 percent green space. Branon then presented a copy of the notification from the NH Department of Transportation approving the Route 12 cut. He also had a letter from Fire Chief Mark Houghton saying he approved of the project for fire, water & sewer. He still needs to see building specifics to sign off on that building, but in a recent email Mr. Houghton said he doesn’t expect any problems.
Regarding the land, Avanru Development Group will own the land and Dunkin will own the building, parking lot, green space. The driveway around the parking lot to the drive-thru will be for common use, Branon said. Mr. Miller said Walpole’s site plan says two buildings can be built on that one lot.
George Delegas, the architect for the project, was also at the meeting. He said the inside layout has remained the same but the outside will now look like a barn. It reflects its surroundings, Mr. Delegas said. There’s a barn across the street and an exit road is called Red Barn Lane and the barn look seems fitting for this rural New Hampshire town. The siding of the building will be board and batten in a gray color. The windows are now glazed giving them a different effect. Landscaping will not change. Signage will include two signs on the building.
There being no more questions Mr. Marcom made a motion to approve the site plan as presented. Mr. Perron second the motion and the Board unanimously approve the motion.

On Tuesday, March 28, 2023 vote "YES" for Article 3 to preserve Walpole!
