Apartment house garage divides Planning Board
At a recent board meeting, Planning Director Ross Moldoff notified the board that Robert Salemi, the owner of the three-story apartment house, wanted to add a 30-by-30-foot garage to his property.
However, because part of the property is zoned residential and part office/business, Moldoff said he notified the Planning Board to see whether members wanted a site plan for the project. Garages are permitted uses in both districts, he added.
Board Chairman Robert Campbell said that because part of the property is zoned for business, he wanted to see a site plan for the garage.
Board member Ron Belanger noted that the board recently approved changes to a business on North Broadway without requiring a site plan.
However, Campbell said the North Broadway building did not include any additional structures in a business zone.
"The question I have is really about due process for the abutters," said Keller. "Whether it is a site plan or under public matters, I think that minimally we need to notify abutters so they can provide the board with input."
