Carlson Real Estate gets okay for 7 School Street office
Attorney Howard Speicher returned to the selectmen for the third time to present a septic plan for 7 School Street, a building at the corner of Bedford Road and the proposed site of a satellite real estate office. Speicher and his client Carlson Real Estate brought with them a letter from the board of health indicating that the board was "favorably disposed" to approve the septic plan. Abutter George Senkler raised a question about run-off due to the location of the septic tank, but appeared satisfied by the plan as presented.
Earlier in the spring the planning board had reviewed the plan and sent the board a list of concerns for their consideration. The revised plan for the real estate office showed several off-street parking spots on the premises. The selectmen reiterated concerns about access, emphasizing the need for a walkway, boundary plantings and signage to direct pedestrian traffic away from an apparent front doorway to an alternate entrance. After some discussion, the selectmen voted to approve the change of use dependent on a list of contigencies to be determined.
