Hotel complex decision delayed in Portsmouth.

The Portsmouth Planning Board has making a decision on whether to allow construction of a five-story hotel, retail stores and two restaurants on the Meadowbrook Inn property near the city's traffic circle.

According to the Portsmouth Herald, at a hearing last month, abutters and residents spoke out against the idea of granting a conditional use permit to the developer, Key Auto Group Inc., citing issues with allowing encroachment on the 100-foot wetlands buffer.

Planning board members also voiced their concerns about the need for the developer to construct 90 percent of a fast-food restaurant and drive-through within the buffer zone.

Originally, the plan also contained a gas station, but it was removed in deference to abutters concerns about the environmental impact.
