38 Jackson – Zoning Board update

A reader submitted this follow-up after the last Zoning Board meeting on the 38 Jackson St. project:

This past Tuesday night, the Zoning Board continued the hearing on the variance request for the proposed 348-unit condo project located at 38 Jackson.  This was a continuance from the first meeting which took place back in July.  During the meeting, the applicant’s traffic consultant was questioned by the attorney representing the applicant, followed by questions from the Board and general public.  A special meeting was scheduled for next Tuesday, September 28, to hopefully complete the hearing on this request.

The traffic consultant testified that the proposed 348-unit building will have minimal impact on traffic.  He also mentioned that he believed this development would result in a reduction in traffic congestion.
It seemed as if the Board will make every effort to complete this hearing at next Tuesday’s special meeting.  The applicant still has another 3 expert witnesses that will testify, each followed by questioning from the Board as well as members of the public.  Afterwards, members of the public will have the opportunity to share with the Board their thoughts on the proposed development.  This will be followed by a discussion by the Board, and then hopefully a vote.
