Planning Board Update

August 2nd Planning Board Meeting

• The Planning Board (PB) strongly urged our team to eliminate the existing curb cut and driveway access from Cambridge Park Drive and redirect all traffic to Steel Place for site ingress and egress.

- In response to this request, our team has eliminated the curb cut and driveway and relocated all access to and from the garage and loading to Steel Place.

• The PB requested that the existing Van Accessible spaces be relocated from the surface on the East side of the building. 

- In response, the team relocated the two required Van Accessible spaces into the interior of the building on the east façade.

• The PB requested additional landscaped/pervious area as a result of removing the existing curb cut and relocating the accessible van spaces.

- The project team took this direction and incorporated additional landscaping and pervious area in the location of the existing driveway and Van Accessible parking.

• The PB also provided direction on the exterior design of the building.

- Our design team is in the process of making design revisions to address the PB’s concerns/comments.

We anticipate our next PB meeting will occur at the end of October. Once we finalize a hearing date, we will update the project schedule. We hope that you will be able to attend the next Planning Board meeting.

If you can't make it, you're welcome to comment or ask questions any time on the project page.
