Petition 1019 – 258 Washington Street, Special Permit
Present was:    Paul Giannetti, Atty. at Law

Atty. Giannetti explained that the applicant has been before the Internal Traffic Committee as well as the Planning Board.  The Planning Board granted the applicant conditional approval.  The approval is contingent upon the conveyance 2 parcels of land to the Town, one a 15-foot strip and the other a one-square foot parcel, must be granted.

Atty. Giannetti explained that when The Richmond Companies (former owner of the land) could not find a tenant for the Starbucks and sold the property to Federated Construction LLC it seemed that this issue fell through the cracks.  Attorneys for all involved are in the process of getting the deeds drawn up.  At the time of the Planning Board meeting Atty. Giannetti did not think that this would take more than a couple of weeks.  This has not proven to be the case.  

Atty. Giannetti is hoping these issues will be resolved before the next meeting.  He is requesting a continuance to the next meeting of April 14, 2011.

The Board requested that Atty. Giannetti submit a letter requesting the extension to convene the public hearing.  He agreed to supply one to the Board

Joe Peznola, seconded by Dorothy Risser, made a motion to reschedule the meeting for April 14, 2011 at 7:30 PM.

Vote: 7-0-0, Unanimous
