Zoning appeals hearing will continue tonight


The Hampstead Board of Zoning Appeals resumes its hearing at 7 p.m. tonight on developer Martin K. P. Hill's appeal of a "stop work" order issued in September over alleged zoning violations at the Robert's Field condominium development.

The panel has heard three nights of testimony on the case, which began in November, and has scheduled another hearing for 7 p.m. tomorrow.

The zoning dispute arose from a September incident in which Hampstead Town Manager Neil Ridgely ordered Hill's crew to stop construction at the Robert's Field condominium site, citing the developer's failure to meet town requirements relating to open space and density issues.

In previous hearings, Ridgely testified that the condominium development was short 16 acres of open space and the proposed 90-unit project exceeded the maximum density allowable under town law.
