ZBA approves more parking at Sunrise

The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) voted unanimously on Oct. 3 to allow the addition of 22 parking spaces at Sunrise of Lynnfield on Salem Street.

Prior to the vote, Sunrise Executive Director Stephen Ostrander said 21 spaces would be regular standard spaces and the remaining space would be reserved for handicapped drivers. “Assisted living has changed drastically,” he said. “We only have five residents with cars.” Therefore, the current number of parking spaces quickly become occupied on a regular basis, thus forcing other visitors to park across the street.

Peter Ogren of Hayes Engineering reminded the members of the board that they had already approved the project’s site plan and that the additional parking spaces would be a “minor modification.”

The ZBA did not hear any of the other six items that were on the agenda.

The Special Permit application for a clubhouse and equipment building at King Rail Reserve Golf Course was once again continued, as has been the case since June.

Residents Kevin and Maura Smith of Pillings Pond Road withdrew their application for a variance to demolish their current home and build a new house, as they have decided to sell the property instead.

Attorney Jay Kimball asked that the Special Permit application be withdrawn from MAS Builders to “raze and remove the existing non-conforming one-story structure and construct on a slightly larger footprint, a new two-story dwelling.” Kimball requested another continuance for the Special Permit application from resident Michael Prousalis of Wing Road to “raze and remove the existing structure and foundation on the lot located in the Ground Water Protection District and construct a new larger non-conforming foundation and two-and-a-half-story dwelling on the lot.”

The variance application from resident Stephen Sampson of Edgemere Road to build a stairway platform was continued as well.

The application from T-Mobile Northeast for an “Administrative Site Plan Review to modify transmission equipment” was continued as no one was in attendance to speak on behalf of T-Mobile.
