The Open Space and Conservation Commission approved a revised site plan for a proposed mixed-use facility with housing and medical office space on Brook Street at Wednesday night’s meeting.
Pat Gorman and Land Resources Consultants, Inc. presented an amended plan for a mixed-use development that has 144 family units and 5,750 square feet of medical office at the rear of 663 Brook St.
The commission asked Gorman to build 80 feet away from the upland review area on the property. This revision will force the developer to make some changes to the plans.
“The commission wants to preserve the wetlands and protect the natural resources,” Robert Alvarado, Engineering Technician, said.
The commission approved the motion 5 to 1 with only Democrat David Schweitzer opposed to the plan.
Gorman will have to make the changes to the plans and bring them to the town staff for review.
“I appreciate the staff and commission working with us,” Gorman said after the meeting. “We will make it work.”
There will be a public hearing on the proposed mixed-use facility at the next Planning and Zoning Commission meeting on Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the council chambers.
