Developer Jim Allard showed his plans to the Hudson, NH, planning board to build a new self-storage facility on Roosevelt Avenue. He wants to put up a three-story, 90,900-square-foot facility at 23 Roosevelt Avenue.

His plan is to combine two lots and take down a 4,990-square-foot concrete building and parking lot before starting the new building. He estimates construction costs at $3.5 million. The board plans a public hearing about this matter on Aug. 14.

  • Robert Peterson, owner of PPI Enterprises, hopes to build a 93,000-square-foot, three-story self-storage facility at 14 Ledge Road in Windham, NH. But the planning board denied approval for PPI to perform ledge blasting as part of the project, and Peterson is suing the town to appeal that decision. The board has 30 days to respond.
