Proposed Spa In Quispamsis Rejected

Quispamsis Town Council giving a unanimous "No" to rezoning that would have allowed a home at 2 Autumn Avenue off the Old Hampton Road become a full service beauty salon.

The home currently operates with a hair salon permit but the owners wanted to make it into a spa offering various services. The Planning Advisory Committee determined the spa would be too large for the property.

Mayor Murray Driscoll says he understands if the owners are disappointed.

Town Engineer Gary Losier says the Planning Advisory Committee looked at all of the information provided but the proposal would have created too many exceptions under the municipal plan when it came to like parking and its proximity to an intersection.
