ZBA Continues Converse Road Hearing

The Marion Zoning Board of Appeals made quick business of their meeting on January 24. Scheduled before the board this evening was the case of Mark Ross and Margot Mims of 195c Converse Road. Once the required quorum was achieved, Chairman Marc Leblanc called the meeting to order. He read a letter from the applicant’s attorney, John Markey, requesting the issue be continued in order for the applicants to finalize the plan for the proposal. Ross, who was present at the meeting, requested the issue be continued to February 7 at 6:30 pm. The meeting was adjourned.

Ross and Mims’ special permit application is to raze an existing non-conforming structure and rebuild in the same location. At issue for the board is the question whether this proposal would be considered “reconstruction” under the pertaining section of the bylaw. In addition, the Planning Board, as well as an abutter, has raised the issue as to the applicability of another section of Marion zoning bylaw pertaining to construction in the velocity zone.

The next meeting of the Marion Zoning Board of Appeals is scheduled for February 7 at 6:30 pm at the Marion Town House.
