Three legal occupancy changes and a request for a wine and malt beverages with cordials/liqueurs license were the agenda items at last week’s North End/Waterfront Residents Association (NEWRA) monthly meeting held in the Nazzaro Community Center.
NEWRA supported a request by Realty Trust, 290 North Street to the Board of Appeal to change the legal occupancy of the building from a bed and breakfast and one residential unit to a four residential dwelling. No exterior work will be performed.
A request by Mirchandori Bharat Chellaram to change the legal occupancy at 2 Snelling Place from a three family residential dwelling to a two family residential dwelling was deferred until NEWRA’s April 4 meeting.
Plans call for extending the living space of the first floor unit into the basement and erecting a one-story addition to the existing property. The building will not exceed 55 feet in height (36 to 45 feet) and will be fully sprinklered.
A request by Peter McGinnis to change the legal occupancy at 27 Sheafe Street from 5 units to 8 units and erect a new roof deck for exclusive use of one-unit was supported by NEWRA.
NEWRA supported a request by Ben Cotto, a new pizzeria at 361 Hanover Street, applied to the Licensing Board for a wine and malt with cordials/liqueurs license.
Once the site of the very popular Circle Pizza, the pizzeria will seat 40 customers with operating hours of 11am to 11pm Sunday-Thursday and 11am to 12am on Friday and Saturday.
The community group supported plans presented by Reverend Stephen Ryres to redesigned and renovate the Washington Garden and Court Yard that includes a waterwheel, raise planters and make more room for residents and tourists to enjoy the site.
The next NEWRA monthly meeting will be held on Thursday, April 14 at 7pm in the Nazzaro Community Center, 30 North Bennet Street.
