NEWRA Zoning, Licensing and Construction Committee monthly meeting (Nov. 19) involved discussions on two items, a transfer of a beer and wine license and development of projects at the Boston Garden, 80 Causeway Street and the redevelopment of the Government Center Garage.
Modern Pastry Shop, 263 Hanover Street, John Picariello and Sara McGee have applied for the transfer of their beer and wine license with cordials associated with expansion of the business into the former space occupied by Piccola Venezia Restaurant.
The committee also discussed and updated major development projects at the Boston Garden and the Government Center Garage.
At a prior monthly meeting (Oct. 29) the committee and its Executive Committee sent a letter of “no objection” to the Board of Appeal, the Licensing Board and the Mayor’s Office of Consumer Affairs and Licensing related to three requests.
“In all cases, no abutters or broader community concerns were raised,” according to ZL&C Committee co-chair David Kubiak. “The recommendation of the committee was not to bring these appeals to NEWRA members but to send letters instead.”
Patricia Trodella seeks to change the legal occupancy at 28-30 Cooper Street from a two family and store to a three family allowing the first floor as a residence.
Khaled Moheydeen has applied to amend the existing C.V. 7-Day Beer and Wine License to add cordials to Il Villaggio Restaurant, 230 Hanover Street.
Nancy Frattaroli has applied to the Mayor’s Office of Consumer Affairs and Licensing to extend the hours for non-live entertainment at Artu Restaurant, 6 Prince Street.
