Major Land Development

Assessor's Plat 50-4, Lot 12 - 4780A Tower Hill Road
The applicant proposes to redevelop the property and adaptively reuse the existing historic structure as the primary building on the site, primarily. The proposed uses include lodging, with hotel rooms and extended stay bungalows for rent, event space, a vineyard, a restaurant and a spa. The restaurant and spa are proposed to be open to the public, and not exclusively for the use of overnight guests. In addition to reuse of the existing structure, the applicant proposes to construct a number of small bungalow structures to provided additional/diversified lodging opportunities in a third and final phase of the project. More specifically the application proposes the following ‘property highlights’ of the redevelopment proposal:

• 33 hotel units
• Conference and meeting facilities
• Indoor event space & wedding hall
• 3,500 square foot restaurant
• Winery & Vineyard
• Spa & fitness center
• 400 person capacity outdoor event lawn
• 12 extended stay bungalows

The application proposes to utilize existing access and infrastructure to support development of this parcel. Access to the Site will remain as currently exists via the driveway and access easement across Lot 19 (The Prout School property). The existing parking areas will be utilized and expanded by repurposing the existing basketball courts on the southern portion of the site. Aside for the extended stay bungalows and associated improvements, there are no physical changes proposed that require the mitigation of increased stormwater flows. Any such mitigation that may be required associated with the bungalows (3rd phase of the project) will need to be accounted for at the time of Preliminary Plan consideration. The proposal also aims to utilize the existing OWTS and public water connections to accommodate the proposed use at the Site.

Current Status:The Preliminary Plan application for Phase I of this project was approved by the Planning Board at their regularly scheduled meeting on April 27, 2021.
