Five petitions postponed to March
Five of the six petitions on the agenda at the February 22 Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) meeting were postponed to March 21 while the last petition was withdrawn without prejudice.
For the project at 403 Main St., applicant Alfred Lattanzi is seeking a variance and special permit to construct three more floors “on and around” the two buildings on the 8,317 square-foot parcel. The mixed-use development would include 16 residential units and two commercial units. Because the current buildings are non-conforming, Lattanzi will need a special permit and a decision from the ZBA stating that extending the “non-conforming condition” would not be harmful to the neighborhood. In addition, a variance will be needed from the setback of six feet, four inches in the rear of the property. The project will have a Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of 3.2.
At 57 Everett St., the owner is requesting a variance to convert a two-family home into a five-family home. The size of the lot is 7,250 square feet, and five parking spaces are being proposed.
At 191 Nichols St., the applicant is seeking a special permit to convert a two-family home into a three-family home. However, as of right, a three-family home is not permitted in that part of the city. The parcel is 7,115 square feet while the building has 2,880 square feet of gross floor area and a FAR of 0.57. The project also calls for dormers to be installed on the left and right side of the home.
At 530 Second St., the applicant, Jam Realty, is seeking a variance to demolish the current building and construct a six-story apartment building with 106 units. Jam Realty is also the applicant for 535 Second St. and is seeking a variance to demolish the current building and construct a four-story apartment building with 27 units.
Christopher Lianos, the applicant for 21 Locust St., withdrew his petition without prejudice. He had been seeking a variance to convert a two-family home into a three-family home.
