LITTLETON, NH — Joseph and Barbara DiPierre, owners of Crazy Horse Campground, continue to believe they are correct in their appeal to the zoning board. Even with the feeling that right is on their side, the DiPierre’s may give up the struggle.

Starting in August 2012, the couple sent several letters to the town regarding their belief that Wal-Mart needed a special exception to allow camper and RV parking.

After a series of correspondence with zoning officer Christopher Hodge, the DiPierre’s filed an appeal with the zoning board in September. They wanted the board to overturn Hodge’s decision that Wal-Mart was not in violation of town zoning rules by allowing RV parking on its Meadow Street lot.

The reason the fight may be abandoned, DiPierre said, was a sense the couple can’t win.
