As Lakeview Closes, A Small Town Grapples With Group Homes

New Hampshire Public Radio

Nate Fennessy is quoted in this NHPR article on zoning rule controversy for two new group homes in Madison, New Hampshire.


Becket’s attorney Nathan Fennessy points to a letter from the Attorney General’s office to Madison. That letter says Becket has a contract with the state to operate in Madison, and the town’s local zoning just doesn’t apply.

"We do know what state law says," Fennessy tells the board, "and state law says we don’t have to go through that process and in fact going through that process would be contrary to state law."
