The Park Central appeals scheduled to be heard by the Zoning Board of Appeals tonight were continued/postponed. This time the delay was caused by a member of the ZBA who was unable to appear.
ZBA Chair Andrew Dennington explained that member Paul Drepanos was unable to attend do to a work conflict. Since Drepanos sat on the first hearing, Dennington said the hearing had to be continued.
The hearing Dennington referred to was actually one of the two appeals scheduled for tonight. In January, a hearing was opened on the developer’s appeal of a Planning Board decision to reject the site plan.
It was scheduled to continue in February. A second appeal by the developer was scheduled to open following that hearing. That appeal is of a decision by the Building Inspector. Both were postponed to tonight at the applicant’s request.
The hearings have been continued to Wednesday, May 17th. That was the date requested by Capital Group Properties with a decision extension to June 9th.
When hearings resume/open, they will be without the participation of member Leo Bartolini who also participated in the first hearing. Dennington said that Bartolini has recused himself at the instruction of selectmen. ZBA member Debbie DeMuria will take his place.
Dennington apologized to the public who showed. The issue came up this afternoon and they notified participants as soon as possible.
Before adjourning, the Chair told attendees that the board posted materials that had been submitted related to the appeals on their website. Click here to open that page.
