2-3 Prohibiting Building on Unaccepted Streets/Highways
1. No building permit shall be issued for the erection of any structure on lots abutting streets or highways which have not been accepted by the Town of Stafford as public streets or highways, except that the Zoning Board of Appeals may allow the erection of a structure on lots abutting streets or highways which have not been accepted by the Town, providing that the structure is not located farther than the last existing structure on an accepted public street or highway measured from the existing entrance. Nothing shall prevent the issuance of a building permit for the construction of farm or accessory buildings which is accessory to existing principal building(s), which are not in violation of any lawful zoning or building regulation of the Town of Stafford.
2. Streets or highways which have not been accepted by the Town as public streets or highways may be serviced by the Town’s Public Works Dept. at the discretion of the Board of Selectmen providing the residents pay a fee for such service to the Town of Stafford. Said service or repair shall not be construed as implied acceptance of the road by the Town of Stafford. Fees will be regulated by the Board of Selectmen.
3. If the Board of Selectmen determines that any unapproved road requires repair or upgrading for safety reasons, the residents must pay the cost to the Town for such repairs or upgrading based on frontage owned.
