Re:  Alderman Michael Raymond – Zone Change – New Section Senior Housing Overlay District

 

Dear Mr. Campbell and Members of the City Council:

 

At the Planning Board meeting of August 5, 2008, the Planning Board voted to forward the following favorable recommendation to the City Council on the above cited zoning ordinance change as modified by the following revisions:

 

1. That Section 22 C 3 shall be amended to read “All SHO proposals except those uses in Section 22 E 1c and Section 22 E 1 d shall be subject to Section 11.11

Affordable Housing Requirements, as applicable.”

2. That Section 22 F 2 shall be amended from “Minimum Lot Coverage: 60%” to

“Maximum Lot Coverage: 60%”

 

If you or members of the City Council have any questions or concerns regarding the foregoing matter, please contact me.

 

Respectfully Submitted, s/Edmund P. Tarallo, Planning Director

 

Alderman Raymond stated that six acres of land in the R-1 zoning district is being sold by St. Anthony Parish, that the Zoning Ordinance Review Committee (ZORC) reviewed whether this was the best use of the land, that a continuing care facility would meet an unmet demand for services in the community, that significant tax revenue will be generated, that the project will create between 75 and 100 jobs, that there will be no impact on the schools, that a twelve foot easement will be given to the city in the event that it is determined that a third travel lane will be needed on Main Street, that a thirty foot easement will be obtained at the rear of the lot which will aid in the restoration of the Middlesex Canal, that he urges adoption of the amendments, that the Planning Director concluded that because the proposed continuing care facility is a combination of Alzheimer’s, assisted living and independent elderly living it does not apply against the city’s low income housing goals, that in a communication received from the Chief Counsel for the Department of Housing and Community Development it was opined that assisted living units would not count towards meeting the Chapter 40B 10% threshold requirement, that a series of neighborhood meetings were held concerning this issue, that there are a lot of projects in north Woburn which will require its own traffic study, that the proposed developer will introduce the project to the community as part of the review process, that the City Council should act to take whatever steps are necessary to amend the petitioner tonight and pass the ordinance, that he wants the ordinances passed with the suggested changes, and that he has no additional information as to why it should be passed tonight but is concerned that it may remain in committee without action rather than the project issues being resolved in the committee on special permits. Alderman Galvin stated that he is a little skeptical on the proposal, that the Alzheimer’s unit will likely have strong demand however Section E refers to “separate uses or a combination”, that the ordinance does not state that there has to be an assisted living or Alzheimer’s unit but it could be 150 senior housing condominium units in comparison to a few houses or nothing at the lot, that if this ordinance is passed and the petitioner seeks a special permit for 150 condominium units the City Council would have a hard time denying the petition, that there is a demand for assisted living and Alzheimer’s units but this does not guarantee that they would be constructed, that the project may not generate tax revenue as a similar complex on Warren Avenue is operated as a non-profit corporation which pays not tax revenue, that he is leaning against the proposal for those reasons, that independent living is more akin to condominium use, that this ordinance is a novel idea, that with most ordinance changes with a specific zoning change the City Council knows what specific project will be developed at the site, that here the City Council has no idea who the end user will be, that there needs to be work on the ordinance so that it does not become an entirely independent living development, that this is a good starting project, that there will be no harm sending this to committee and review before the next Regular Meeting of the City Council, that the developer should come before the City Council, that he is in support of the Alzheimer’s and independent living units but the project is being approached the wrong way, that the matter should be sent to committee, and that with one parcel being rezoned for one developer in mind the developer should be brought to the City Council. Alderman Gonsalves stated that continuing care units do not contribute to the housing stock requirement, that if a development is independent living it does impact the housing stock requirement and therefore there should be affordable units included, that there may need to be a deed restriction to avoid a later change to independent living which may impact the city’s affordable housing requirement with not affordable unit component, that there is a need to ensure that the project remains as permitted, that ZORC did review possible uses of the area including low impact uses and retail, that the proposed use is not a bad use and has limited traffic impact, that the City Council should decide what is wanted at the site and craft the ordinance to do this, that the combination of uses combinations should be set up, that if an agreement cannot be reached amendments should be adopted including adoption of the Planning Board recommendations, that a combination of uses be required and that there should be limits on the independent living units, that the independent living use can be very broad, that it should be a continuing care facility component, that the ordinance can require a percentage of the uses, and that she wants to avoid a luxury elderly condominium development. Alderman Drapeau stated that this proposal is a starting point but that he wants to ensure that a project under this ordinance will be as envisioned with assisted living components. Alderman Mercer-Bruen stated that it is clear that a condominium development at the site would not be approved, that the language of the ordinance should be tight enough to protect the neighborhood, that business plans come and go which is all the more reason to take the time to review the proposal, and that she wants to know if there is something behind the matter that requires action at this meeting. Alderman Dwyer stated that assisted living is needed desperately in the city, and that he will support the project and work on the project in the committee on special permits. Alderman Gately stated that assisted living and senior housing is needed in the city, that this development is the best thing that can happen to that property, that the property has been vacant for some time, that the special permit process can be used to protect the neighborhood, that the idea is to pass the overlay district, that the City Council is now beginning to call for conceptual plans for various components of development, that the only matter being considered is the overlay district, and that the ordinance should be passed as is and work on the issues of the project in the special permit process. President Doherty stated that there is no guarantee that the money for the land will go to the parish, that it has been said that there will be a rec center but there has been no calculations brought forward to demonstrate how this project will be completed with the funding, that independent living by the U.S. Census Bureau presumes cooking facilities in the development, that the independent living definition may be too vague or may perhaps be accessory to independent living, that a map should be filed that reflects the plan, that a map is not on file, that the City Council should seek a legal opinion on Chapter 40B requirements, that the project has a lot of good to it but the City Council should not rush this matter with these outstanding issues, that the ordinance is vague in parts, that this would be precedent setting to move forward with an overlay project without knowing the particular project, that it is not certain whether the State will allow the widening of the State highway, and that he is not certain whether the City Council will allow the development along the canal. Alderman Denaro stated that this is not a city project, that this is a church project on church property, that the parish has a right to decide what is done with their church property, that the City Council has to be concerned not about the parish decision but that the overlay district cannot be changed away from what the spirit of the development is, that there must be an effort to ensure that the ordinance meets those intentions, that he does intend to support the proposal, that time is needed to study the amendments, that the project is still viable and good however the City Council can take three weeks to review the proposal, and that inquiries to the Conservation Commission, the City Solicitor and State authorities will take longer than three weeks for a response. IN FAVOR: John Martini, 169 Place Lane stated that there is a need for senior assisted living, that this will not be a condominium development, that this will enhance the tax base, that the project will fit well in the area, that this will revitalize the area, that this will allow St. Anthony Parish to develop a function hall and CCD areas, and that this is right thing to do for the area. Mr. Martini offered a petitioner in support of the proposal to the City Council for review. Motion made and 2nd that the document be received and made part of the record, all in favor, 9-0. John Scalley, 18 Dartmouth Street stated that this is a dream come true for the parish and he urges supports. President Doherty asked for a raise of hands in the audience for those in support of the proposal and approximately fifty people raised their hands. Susan Nocella, 27 ??? Street stated that all religious education classes at St. Anthony Parish have been held in homes, and that the Alzheimer’s, assisted living and elderly housing is the best use for Main Street. Jim Curran, 166 Place Lane stated that assisted living use is needed in north Woburn, and that the parish center is also needed for meetings. Joseph Savoia stated that he is a north Woburn resident and that this is a good opportunity for the parish and the city. Patricia Cardinelli stated that Alzheimer units are needed in Woburn, that this will be senior housing with shopping within walking distance and by community buses, and that this will be a good setting for the use. Mayor Thomas McLaughlin stated that he supports the proposal and its benefits with assisted living, elderly housing, the easement on Main Street and the easement on the Middlesex Canal, that there are some concerns that can be worked through, and that he urges that this order be adopted. Mary O’Grady, 3 Foster Avenue stated that she supports the proposal and that St. Anthony’s Parish is the only church in the city without a meeting hall. Rev. Richard Shmaruk stated that he has been the pastor of St. Anthony’s Parish for the past two years, that this project from the parish perspective will help the future of the youth with religious education programs but also helps the elderly of the community, that the parish has been at this location since the late 1920s, that this development will be neighbors with the parish, that the parishioners recall money being collected to build a parish center and a parish school at the site which was never constructed, that there was a rumor that the money was taken by the Archdiocese of Boston, that a letter at the time indicated that there was a freeze on the building, that the money was to be put into an Archdiocese revolving fund with access only by the parish, that there is still some of that money left in that account for this parish, that the funds from the sale will be used to build the parish center, that the pastor makes the final decision if the funds are used to build a parish center, that the alternative is to leave the site undeveloped, and that the feasibility study was stopped because it was not certain whether funds would be available to construct the parish center. Stephen Braese, 4 Diana Drive stated that he represents the Archdiocese in the sale as broker, that the funding of the parish center is not on the floor tonight, that the parish was given assurances that the funds will remain in the parish, that it is not certain how much money will be raised until the ordinance is adopted, that depending upon the amount of funds raised there will be a decision as to what can be built, that $35,000.00 was raised by parishioners to do a feasibility study which resulted in a proposal for an addition to the rear of the church, that he cannot disclose the proposed developer, that this is an assisted living development with a combination of assisted living and independent with no sale component, that independent living is at least one meal per day, housekeeping, concierge, activities and bus service, that assisted living has more medical intervention, that this is an expensive facility to run because of all the services provided, that this creates and enjoyable living environment for the elderly residents, that this could allow a resident to start in a unit as independent living and become an assisted living use over time but stay in the same unit, that there will be $350,000.00 to $400,000.00 in additional tax revenue to the city, that there will be approximately 75 parking spaces, that the average age will be 70 to 90 years old, that the residents will be mostly females, that assisted living residents will not have cars, that 25% of the independent living residents will have cars, that there may be an impact on the fire department ambulance service, that the building will be three stories in height, that there will be 45% open space, that it will be a brick building, and that he is contractually prohibited from disclosing the identity of the developer who will come forward. Mr. Braese offered an artist’s rendering of the parish center to the City Council for review. Motion made and 2nd that the documents be received and made part of the record, all in favor, 9-0. A communication dated August 12, 2008 was received from Paul J. Meaney, Executive Director, Woburn Business Association, Ten Tower Office Park, Woburn in favor of the proposal.

Re: Callahan’s Deli, 229 Main Street, Woburn, MA modification to parking plan

 

Petitioner: Mr. Barry Callahan, Callahan’s Deli

We are requesting a modification to the parking space plan prepared by Edward J. Farrell, professional land surveyor, dated 2/6/08.

The modification to the plan will show the location of the existing parking lot light fixture, bollard and fire hydrant on the parking plan.

 

Sincerely, s/Barry Callahan, Callahan’s Deli

s/Robert Banks, Com-Manager, authorized signer for Helen Banks LLC

 

Motion made and 2nd that the REQUEST FOR MODIFICATION OF THE PARKING PLAN be APPROVED, all in favor, 9-0.

A communication dated August 11, 2008 with attachment was received from Attorney John D. McElhiney, McElhiney and Matson, 607 Main Street, Woburn, Massachusetts 01801 as follows:

 

Re: Modifications to Special Permit – Pecks, Inc., 891 Main St., Woburn, MA

 

Dear Councillors:

 

I am submitting herewith a revised site plan (20 copies) for the above matter, which incorporate some of the conditions which you had imposed, and which further modifies the parking plan and some associated layout and lighting changes.

 

The plan shows the handicap parking space, as required in Condition 4 of your Decision. The plan further shows the location of a solid, gated fence to the rear of the property, behind which will be the location of the dumpster, consistent with Condition #3 of your Decision. The plan also shows a snow storage area along the southerly end of the lot, consistent with Condition #2 of your Decision.

 

Actual conditions in the field, including the location of the existing free-standing sign (roughly in the middle of the parking lot entrance area), have necessitated a revision to the parking area. While six spaces have been eliminated from the 29 originally shown, we still have 23 spaces, which is 22 more than required under the ordinance. In addition, the spaces eliminated were those which are generally within the snow storage area, and which would not have worked as a practical matter because of the location of the existing sign.

 

This plan also shows the elimination of a two jutting island area, to better accommodate turning movements and snow plowing efforts. Landscaping along the front is retained, however, and overall the Planning Board will still have jurisdiction over the landscaping aspects of the plan.

 

Finally, a new light will be installed on an existing pole in the front of the property. We are eliminating the need to utilize an older pole location at the far northerly end of the property (which pole is not, in any event, even on our property).

 

We are asking the Council to allow us to utilize this revised site plan, as a much more functional and practical design, in lien of the site plan previously submitted.

 

I would ask that the Council consider this a relatively minor modification to the Special Permit, and adopt the same without the need for a new public hearing. As you know, this matter had generally garnered the prior support of your board and other city agencies, and was not the subject of any opposition at any of the prior hearings. The Petitioner is hoping to open up at this site as soon as possible, and your approval of this modified site plan will greatly assist in those efforts.

 

I will be available at your meeting on August 12, 2008, should you have any questions.

 

Thank you for any courtesy you can render in this regard.

 

Sincerely, s/John D. McElhiney

 

Motion made and 2nd that the REQUEST FOR MODIFICATION OF THE PARKING PLAN be APPROVED, all in favor, 9-0.
