The Chelsea Zoning Board of Appeals met on Tuesday, Sept. 11th and approved three petitions, while continuing one beer and wine store review until next month.
•The Board approved a special permit from The Neighborhood Developers (TND) to build 96 units of housing in The Box District with 115 parking spaces. It would be the final piece of development in the major, mixed use redevelopment of what was formerly an abandoned industrial wasteland. The overall project has been going on for several years and includes subsidized and unsubsidized housing, a new park and several other features.
• TND also got approval for a special permit and variances to rehabilitate the old American Legion Building on 215 Shurtleff St. as a 10-unit veterans housing group home with services on site.
• The Board also granted a special permit and variances to the Marchese family for subdividing properties on Eastern Avenue and Stockton Street. The properties already had existing structures on them.
• A measure to review the proposed convenience store with beer and wine at the current Park Street Cleaners business (104 Park St.) was continued due to the fact that there wasn’t a quorum present on the Board. It will be taken up at the Oct. 9th meeting, and will also be reviewed by the Planning Board on Sept. 25th.
