Every now and then reason is applied to a case.

This is one of those.

I hear the owners are now planning to tear down the house (camp). This makes me sad. My grandfather built that camp in 1950.

Has it been torn down yet?

The house is still there, but I don't know for how long. When the boathouse was rebuilt, and "enhanced" to provide living space, my first thought was that it would allow the property to be used for living during an eventual teardown/rebuild of the main house.

Where this whole thing went south is that the replacement of the boat house is NOT "in kind" yet was approved. Arguing the building height after the fact was never really going to go anywhere.

Default Good Luck Lakegirl

If the new boathouse or shed is on the same footprint, then it is legal. They can even build up to a town restricted height and block your view. It happens mega times on the Walmart side of the lake. And I should know, my neighbor, did the same (Gilford) and my high-powered attorney says it's all legit. I had a tough time selling the property because of the view. The town refuses to allow a tax abatement because of lost property value.

I wish you good luck. Just make sure your neighbor is not cozying up with a state rep. Then its history. Politics is the worst evil.

You can't change any dimension of a boathouse that is built on the water and extends into the lake. Even if you have the same footprint, length and width, height is also considered a dimension.

I am not sure how height affects wetlands, but that is how it is.

The height restriction has changed over time, back and forth.
