The Metrowest Daily News reports today the Zoning Board of Appeals appears inclined to grant the Gulbankian family more time to make improvements to their property that were ordered by the board in 2011 after complaints from neighbors and a lengthy hearing process.
The Gulbankians Wednesday asked the Zoning Board of Appeals for time to make what their attorney said were more than $200,000 in paving and drainage improvements to the property.
Chairman Matthew Hurley, surveying the opinions of his colleagues, said the board supports the request but wants neighbors who are worried about the property to be notified in advance.
The Gulbankians agreed to alert their neighbors that a vote would be taken at a meeting on Dec. 11.
The Gulbankian family appealed the ZBA’s 2011 ruling, but the decision was upheld by the Worcester Superior Court. The family said last month they would abandon any further appeals, leaving the future of the machine shop they operate at the Mt. Vickery Road property in limbo.
