An appeal of a variance allowing campgrounds at the Claremont Speedway in Claremont, N.H., will not be heard, members of the Zoning Board of Adjustment said Monday night (Nov. 21), the Union Leader reported.

The variance that was granted by board members on Oct. 3 allows the addition of a seasonal campground that would have 149 campsites on 66 acres of land near the racetrack.

Abutters to the Claremont Speedway and residents of Thrasher Road — Charles Egbert and Reverdy and Rebecca Ford — had separately submitted requests for appeals.

While both requests were submitted on time, they did not warrant a rehearing, board member Carolyn Towle said Tuesday.

“Our board did its due diligence,” Tolwe said. “There were plenty of conversations, and I can say that the applicant, any criteria that we asked them about or to bring us back information on, they had done it and everything in their power to make a successful application.”
