The Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously approved a proposed road salt storage and distribution facility at a special meeting Tuesday night. The commission voted 7-0 in favor of the plan at Town Hall; Commissioners Bruce Duchesneau and Anthony Siragusa were absent. The decision, with few members of the public in the audience, comes seven weeks after the commission first heard the preliminary plan for the Gateway Project proposed on May 24. The developer is required to get an approved zoning permit before starting any work and must pay soil erosion and sediment control fees.
After construction has started, any major changes would have to be reviewed and approved by the planning director or commission. Burdick added that all comments from the town officials — including the town engineer and Water Pollution Control Authority — were addressed prior to Tuesday’s meeting.
