Follow-up:Replace Souter's home with 'Lost Liberty Hotel' Let The Process begin!

In a follow-up to the proposal to build a hotel on the property to Justice Souters thru Eminent Domain, today police were stationed outside his home as "a precaution".

Logan Darrow Clements of California wrote in a letter faxed to town officials in Weare on Tuesday. The letter was passed along to the board of selectmen. If the five-member board were to endorse the hotel project, zoning laws would have to be changed and the hotel would have to get approval from the planning board.

When asked if they were taking this request seriously, Charles Meany, Weare's code enforcement officer said, "But Of Course!"

"In lieu of the recent Supreme Court decision, I would imagine that some people are pretty much upset. If it is their right to pursue this type of end, then by all means let the process begin."

"I have to offer him the luxury of due process," Meany said Wednesday, adding that he planned to tell Clements that "he has started the process backwards." Meany said he will tell Clements he first must petition the selectmen, next the planning board, then the zoning board before "he comes to me for a building permit."

Souter's two-story colonial farmhouse is assessed at a little more than $100,000 and brought in $2,895 in property taxes last year.
