The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) met on Tuesday night, Dec. 11th, and approved one measure while continuing four petitions until the January meeting.
•The ZBA approved a special permit for Maria Russo to operate a dress shop in the old Brown Jug location on Adams Street and Wesley Street. The petition included a change of use and a variance for parking. Both were approved with conditions.
•The Happy Day Adult Day Care facility asked for their petition – which has been in flux for several months – to be continued again. It has already received Planning Board approval and needs a special permit from the ZBA. The ZBA accepted the continuation and it will be heard at the Jan. 8th meeting. The facility is to be located at the old Shawmut Printing building at the end of Library/Marlborough St. in the Box District.
Three other petitions were continued to the Jan. 8th meeting after getting their first hearing. They will be set for a hearing at the Planning Board on Dec. 18th Those three are:
•The Cataldo Ambulance Company seeks to re-locate their Chelsea operations from Bellingham Square to 111 Crescent Ave. The company will be asking for a special permit to operate an ambulance service requiring 44 off-street parking spaces.
•Jim and Lillian Guido of 118 Warren Ave. are requesting a Special Permit to convert their single-family home into a two-family home. They do not have the required parking for the change.
•Mai Phung of 71 Grove St. is looking for a special permit to convert a two-family dwelling into a three-family. They do not meet requirements for minimum lot size, usable open space and off-street parking.
