Several of you expressed interest in the plan by Fitzgerald’s General Store to offer discounted commuter rail parking, so here’s an update.
The proposal was supposed to come before the Zoning Board of Appeals last night, but it had to be postponed due to a scheduling conflict. It’s now scheduled to come before the board on May 27th.
Before the meeting with the ZBA, a consultant for Fitzgerald plans to meet with neighbors to answer questions and discuss any concerns or issues. Linda Shaffer of the Southville Road Neighborhood Network tells me most concerns center around traffic, security and maintenance. Shaffer has also met with Interim Police Chief Jane Moran to discuss the proposal.
If Fitzgerald’s gets approval from the ZBA, they move on to the Planning Board for site review.
