To Whom It May Concern:

This notice is to inform you that a public hearing will be held on Tuesday April 18, 2023 at 6:00 PM, Everett City Hall, 3rd Floor George Keverian Hearing Room. All interested parties may attend and opinions will be heard regarding the following petition.

Whereas a petition has been presented by:

PROPOSAL: The applicant seeks to convert the existing two-family dwelling to a three-family dwelling on a 5,933-sf lot located within the dwelling district as per plan by Framingham Survey Consultants, dated 11/7/2022. The plan contains five (5) parking spaces 9’ x 18’. A permit to build the existing structure was issued on November 6th 1897. The structure received an occupancy permit as a two-family dwelling on April 6th, 2022. The existing structure contains 3,062 sf of gross floor area and has a current FAR of .51.

Property Address: Map/Parcel: 121 Florence St. L4-04-000148

Person Requesting: Yimmi Granados 207 High St Randolph, MA 02368

Reason for Denial:

Permit was denied in accordance to the City of Everett Zoning Ordinance Appendix A. The applicant shall seek relief from the Zoning Board of Appeals as follows:


1. Pursuant to Section 17.A.1 of the Zoning Ordinance, a three-unit residential use would require six (6) parking spaces, but the lot contains only five (5) parking spaces. You may either seek a vari- ance from the Zoning Board of Appeals or participate in the Transportation Demand Management program under Section 35 of the Zoning Ordinance.

2. Everett Zoning Ordinance APPENDIX A Section 4(B)(2)b requires 7,000 s.f. of lot area for a two-family dwelling. Accordingly, the 5,933 s.f. lot is currently nonconforming as to area, and the addition of a third dwelling unit will increase this nonconformity. A special permit is required, pursuant to Section 3(F) of the Zoning Ordinance.

Please be advised that you have thirty (30) days from the date of this refusal to appeal this decision
