Zoning Board of Appeals Minutes 09/11/14
Minutes of Meeting— September 11, 2014
The Hudson Board of Appeals met in the Selectmen’s Hearing Room, 2nd Floor, Town Hall, Hudson, Massachusetts.  At 7:00 PM, Joe Peznola called the meeting to order.
Present:        Joe Peznola, Darja Nevits, Christopher Tibbals, Todd Pietrasiak, Jill Schafer, Jennifer Burke, Planning Director and Teresa Vickery Clerk.

Petition 1036 – Notice of Project Change
Present were:   Paul Giannetti, Atty. at Law
        Robert Moss, Madison Place

The Board is in receipt of a letter dated August 19, 2014 requesting that the changes being made to the plan be considered insubstantial.  Atty. Giannetti explained the changes to the Board.  He noted that the applicant is proposing to eliminate the approved car ports and build 27 enclosed parking garages.  The updated plan also eliminate the dog walking area, swimming pool, computer room, TV media room, fitness are and community garden.  Atty. Giannetti explained that Mr. Moss prefers to use the money saved from these amenities to update fixtures in the units.  

A bike storage barn will be added in order to make use of the bike trail.  The proposed meeting room will be relocated as well as the bus stop shelter.  The leasing office will be larger and the parking for the office will be reconfigured to eliminate having to directly back out onto the entrance road.  

There will not be any reduction in parking spaces.  

Mr. Peznola asked if any of these changes will affect the waivers that remain in place as part of the original approval.  Atty. Giannetti said no.   

The applicant is still awaiting approval from MassHousing.  Mr. Moss expects to receive this by the end of the month.  When the regulatory agreement is received they will be able to apply for building permits.  

Mr. Moss did note that he would be willing to open up a dialog regarding some type of mitigation.  Ms. Burke said she would be contacting him to discuss this.  

Joe Peznola, seconded by Jill Schafer, made a motion to determine that the changes requested in the letter dated August 19, 2014 and on the plan entitled “Layout and Materials Plan” as drawn by DeVellis Zrein, Inc. last revised August 18, 2014 are to be considered insubstantial changes per 760 CMR 56.05 (11) and are approved.
