News out of Claremont now and following up on a story we brought you recently, a proposed senior living community on private land located on Washington Street won’t be moving forward for another month. The Eagle Times reports that Monday, the city’s Zoning Board of Adjustment decided to not take any action on the plan after it was revealed that a land abutter was not alerted of the public hearing.
The project is being spearheaded and proposed by Wayne and Jean McCutcheon, who own 18 acres of land on 492 Washington Street and hope to construct 66 senior condominium units.
Some neighbors did attend the meeting Monday night, but the hearing could not move forward because not all of the abutting landowners had been notified.
The McCutcheon’s are asking the city for a variance from rules governing permitted uses within residential zones, as well as lot sizes. Wayne McCutcheon, who works locally as a surveyor, bought the 492 Washington Street property in 1969.
The hearing for the zoning variance has been postponed until May 2nd.
