Planning Board shorts, July 28

Zoning Bylaws. The Planning Board will meet with their consultant Jon Witten in August to consider revisions to the Carlisle Zoning Bylaws and to establish a comprehensive set of regulations and/or a land-use and development bylaw.

268 Fiske Street. A public hearing for approval of a common driveway special permit under section 5.4.4 of the Carlisle Zoning Bylaw on two lots at 268 Fiske Street continued. Applicant John Ballantine chose not to attend the meeting, and discussion was limited. The hearing remains open until next meeting.

27 School Street. A public hearing for Omnipoint Communications Inc. (T-Mobile) special permit and site plan approval under section 5.9 of the Carlisle Zoning Bylaws continued. The board granted Omnipoint permission to install, operate and maintain a personal wireless communication facility at 27 School Street on the church owned by the First Religious Society. The board had previously approved a special permit and site plan approval for Sprint to install first, but due to Sprint’s inability to begin as planned, Omnipoint will progress independently.

570 West Street. Michael and Sarah Brophy informally discussed conceptual plans for the development of their 10-acre property with 50-foot frontage on 570 West Street. Possible plans include a conservation cluster, two to three affordable housing units, and building themselves a house. Many abutters arrived for the discussion.

Hanover Hill. The Board postponed reviewing draft decisions for five common driveway special permits off Hanover Road under section 5.4.4 of the Zoning Bylaws, since no one representing Hanover Hill Subdivision arrived. ∆
