An update now in a story that we’ve been following since its beginning as a proposed senior-living facility on Washington Street in Claremont is moving closer towards becoming a reality. During Tuesday’s Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting, board members were given the lowdown on the legal information of the proposed project, including the fact that the building will be owner occupied and not a rental or subsidized.
The Eagle Times reports that the board will pick up the proposal once again on May 2nd for a public hearing and garner input from neighbors and abutting properties to see if the project is actually feasible.
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.
The McCutcheons are asking the city for a variance from rules governing permitted uses within residential zones, as well as lot sizes. Their attorney delivered legal documents to the planning board, who will take some time to review them ahead of the public hearing.
Wayne hopes to begin the project early next year, provided all permits and variances are approved.
