Zoning Board Hears Appeal on 1292 Westminster – May 8, 2018

TOMORROWMay 9 at 5:30pm444 Westminster Street, 1st Floor

The Zoning Board of Review will hear an appeal tomorrow brought forward by a neighbor against the decision of the City Plan Commission (CPC) to grant Preliminary Plan Approval for a proposed development at 1292 Westminster.

The CPC’s decision made at its February meeting included the granting of waivers from submission of all required plans for state approvals as well as a reduction in required parking. There are conditions for these approvals such as allowing a lien on the property at 334 Carpenter for parking assurances for 1292 Westminster and several others (see February CPC minutes for details).

While the Zoning Board of Review is not scheduled to hear public testimony on May 9, it makes an impact to have a crowd of stakeholders present at the meeting. Neighbors are encouraged to attend and, if possible, make your opinion known silently by holding signs that reflect your concerns & opposition.
