The absence of a fifth member of the appeals board forced a delay in the start of a hearing on developer Nick Delegas’ proposed development in Weymouth Landing.
March 2, 2017
WEYMOUTH – The start of an appeals board hearing on one proposed Weymouth Landing development has been postponed while the hearing on another has concluded.
Postponed was Wednesday night’s hearing on developer Nick Delegas’ proposed $22 million, mixed-use development at 4-48 Commercial St.
An lawyer representing Delegas requested the delay after board Chairman Richard McLeod announced that Vice Chairman Edward Foley sustained an injury and was unable to attend the meeting.
McLeod said four of the five members of the board are needed to approve a special permit, and if one is absent a unanimous vote would be needed.
He said under these circumstances, a postponement “is the applicant’s sole decision.”
Delegas is seeking variances and special permits to build 87 residential units and about 10,000 square feet of commercial space. The development would also include a two-level parking garage.
The board has scheduled a special meeting for 7 p.m. March 16 to begin the Delegas hearing. The meeting will be held at the McCulloch Building, 182 Green Street.
