A permit issued for a self-storage facility in Dorset, Vt., was overturned on Aug. 31, but the vote that revoked it was invalid, per the state statute.
Brad Tyler is attempting to build three 20-by-100-foot self-storage buildings on his Route 30 property. The Dorset Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) overturned his permit, but because two of the board’s nine members recused themselves from the vote due to conflict of interest, there was a lack of concurrence of the majority. In an e-mail, Dorset Town Manager said the result was technically a non-decision, and the permit is, therefore, still valid.
The outcome of the proceedings can be appealed to the Environmental Court within 30 days.
