Here’s the latest e-mail from Friends of Stoneham about the Stoneham Zoning Board of Appeals deliberations on the Weiss Farm project.
The ZBA is scheduled to meet in the Hearing Room at 6 PM on Wednesday, April 20 to begin deliberations for the purpose of making a decision on the Commons at Weiss Farm comprehensive permit application. The meeting will be open to the public but members of the public will no longer be heard. There may be additional ZBA meetings scheduled to continue deliberations. See meeting agenda posted on the town website at http://www.stoneham-ma.gov/sites/stonehamma/files/u80/doc02560720160414074635.pdf.
Last week, on April 13, the Stoneham Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) met to finish up the public hearing on the Commons at Weiss Farm comprehensive permit application. The ZBA heard the developer’s closing statement and final comments from very concerned members of the general public. After scheduling a date to begin deliberations on the application, the ZBA officially closed the public hearing. A 50-minute video of the meeting can be viewed on Stoneham TV on-demand at http://vp.telvue.com/preview?id=T01824&video=272876.
At last week’s meeting Special Counsel Jon Witten confirmed with the developer that a decision on the application would be made and filed with the Town Clerk by Monday, May 2. In its decision, the ZBA may: 1. approve the comprehensive permit application, as filed, 2. approve it with conditions or 3. deny it.
