Attorney Tarby stated that at the time the landowner acquired this property there were hundreds of tires and vehicles on the property, that there is an investment in office space and personnel which the petitioner must recover and the three year petition allows this to occur, and that donated vehicles cannot have broken glass or flat tires. Paul DeCaprio of Winning Auto Services, Inc. stated that donated vehicles must be complete, that the vehicles are picked up on small trucks from the donor and then brought on larger trucks to a location in Manchester, New Hampshire, that he employs ten people, and that he has assured the City Council in the past that his vehicles will not be using the streets of the city,. Alderman Galvin arrived in the Council Chambers. Alderman Drapeau stated that this is not a good use for the site and it should not be a long-term use, that he wants to limit the use as much as possible until the desired use of the recreational facility is built, that if the petitioner is limited to working with the two organizations described in the proposal then this will limit the possibility of the use from becoming too busy, that if the petitioner had said in committee that it would be uneconomical to limit the business to two vendors then he would have withdrawn it, that he is trying to weigh the needs of the neighborhood with the business, and that the petitioner agreed to this restriction. Alderman Gonsalves stated that she would like an annual renewal of the special permit rather than the three year approval. Alderman Mercer-Bruen stated that there were lengthy discussions on the conditions for the special permit, that the litigation concerning the special permit for the recreational facility may take more than a year to settle, that the petitioner needs opportunity to recover his investment, that she is comfortable with the annual review, that she is concerned with the quality of life in Ward Five, that the petitioner contends that they have the right to operate the business without the special permit, that she appreciates the opportunity to place conditions on the property, that this is not a trucking terminal and she would not support a trucking terminal, and that there is no reason to believe that this is anything more than what has been presented. Alderman Dwyer stated that the property should be used and generate some income until the hockey rink is completed, that there should not be vehicles on the streets of the city generated from this business.

 

IN FAVOR: John Beauchamp, 2 Ryan Road stated that he supports the landowner, that he cannot run a property without tenants, that the traffic to be generated from this business is a drop in the bucket compared to the 31,000 vehicles which use Washington Street each day, that what the petitioner has is open space and that it what the landowner has to work with until the hockey rink is built, and this is not the worst use. Kevin McDonough, 295 Salem Street stated that he lives across the street from the parcel, that the locus was blighted, and that the goal is to clean up the site. George Gately, Jr., no address given, stated that he has worked for and with the landowner, that this process is a charade and it is un-American to limit the petitioner to two businesses, that this is the only business being told that he cannot use Salem Street for his trucks, that no one else would deal with the property, that it is contaminated, that the 90 cars on site will be no issue, and that the cars will not be seen from the street. Paul Meaney, Executive Director, Woburn Business Association, Ten Tower Office Park stated that the petitioner is not a member of the Woburn Business Association, that he is in favor of the hockey rink, that the landowner wants income from the property while he waits to resolve the litigation, that Washington Street is a State highway over which the city has no control, and that there is nothing wrong with the proposal at all. John Callahan, 9 Penny Road stated that the amount of traffic from the site has been limited, and that thee could be better uses but if the property is not supported financially then the hockey rink may never be built. Richard Morgan, 67 School Street stated that the landowner wants to do something with the property, that the locus has been cleaned, and that the proposal is a clean operation. John Robbin, 9 Alpena Avenue stated that he works for the petitioner, that he moved cars from the site when flooding occurred this past weekend, and that he operated a transport business from 289 Salem Street under a City Council permit and that he never had an issue with the police department. Michael Oulton, Fairview Road stated that this is a clean business and that this use will not cause traffic problems in the neighborhood. OPPOSED: Kathy Bailey, 4 Utica Street stated that she previously stated her objections on the record, that this issue is about the law, that the petitioner has been operating an illegal operation at the site without the benefit of a special permit, that this is in a wetland area, and that there was flooding at the site over the weekend. Lori Medeiros, 9 Marietta Street stated that her concerns were previously expressed on the record, and that this is a use that will be detrimental to that area of the community. Paul Medeiros, 9 Marietta Street stated that the City Council needs to get a handle on the property, that the site has been cleaned, that he is concerned that uses moved onto the site and spaces were built out without a permit, that the only permits on file in the building department were for rood repairs, that this is not about the user but the use, that the rain over the weekend demonstrates issues that occur on site whenever thee is a significant rainfall, that this is not a small business but is associated with a larger company, that he was told that the petitioner has a terminal in Woburn at the site when he called to inquire about services, that the use should be classified as a truck terminal or transportation terminal which is not allowed at the site, that a truck terminal should not be approved, and that the petition should be denied as it is not in the best interest of the community. Mr. Medeiros offered copies of photographs 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. Motion made and 2nd to close the public hearing, all in favor, 9-0. PUBLIC HEARING CLOSED.

Motion made and 2nd that the SPECIAL PERMIT be GRANTED, AS AMENDED, with the proposed conditions adopted as further amended herein, all in favor, 9-0.

On the petition by 325 Washington Street LLC, 853 Turnpike Street, Suite 241, North

Andover, Massachusetts 01845 for a special permit pursuant to Section 5.1.29 and Section 7.3 of the 1985 Woburn Zoning Ordinances, as amended to allow for 1. A fast food operation with hours in excess of 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., and 2. The alteration of the existing pylon sign, at 325 Washington Street. PUBLIC HEARING OPENED. A copy of a communication dated May 5, 2006 from John E. Corey, Jr., P.E. to Edmund Tarallo, Planning Director and City Council was received as follows:

 

Subject:  325 Washington St. – Special Permit for Dunkin Donuts

 

The engineering department has performed a site review of the above referenced project and reviewed the site plan and traffic study submitted in conjunction with the special permit. Based on our review, we offer the following comments:

 

Access to the site is provided by two curb cuts on Washington St. and one on Cedar St.

The curb cut on Washington St. closest to the intersection should be signed for “No Left Turn”. The reason being is that there are insufficient gaps in traffic to allow for this movement during most of the day. There are sufficient curb cuts to allow this movement from the remaining two exits.

 

Parking delineation and direction turn arrows as indicated on the site plan should be installed in thermo-plastic. Additionally, the less functional parking spaces at the rear of the building should be designated for “Employees Parking Only”.

 

The traffic study indicates an increase in the AM peak hour of approximately 50% with a rate of one vehicle per minute. The traffic study indicates that the location of this Dunkin Donuts will lesson the impacts of cross over traffic attempting to use the Dunkin Donuts on the westerly side of Washington St. and the department agrees that this will improve the situation from a traffic safety issue. Given the limited parking and multiple uses that the site contains, we believe that traffic circulation problems within the site in the AM peak hour may result and processing the anticipated number of vehicle trips will be problematic. As with any site where traffic circulation problems occur, patrons will seek alternative sites for the products being sought and a balance will be achieved.

 

The project consists of a fast food use with traffic impacts and as such mitigation should be required for this special permit. The applicant’s attorney indicated that the project cost is estimated at $75,000.00. On this basis, the department requests that 3% of the project cost or $2,250.00 be placed in a mitigation account for traffic related work in Ward 5.

 

Lastly, there is a yellow container within the public right of way. If this is the property of the applicant, its purpose for being in the public right of way should be approved.

 

I trust the foregoing information suffices for your current needs. Should you have any questions or comments concerning the foregoing comments, please do not hesitate to contact this office.

 

A communication dated May 15, 2006 was received from Edmund P. Tarallo, Planning Director, Woburn Planning Board as follows:

 

Re: Jaton Management Co. LLC – 325 Washington St. – To allow a fast food operation in excess of 6:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M. and alteration of the sign.

 

Dear Mr. Campbell and Members of the City Council:

 

At the meeting held on May 9, 2006, the Planning Board voted to forward a favorable recommendation to the City Council on the Special Permit request to allow a fast food operation and alteration of the sign at 325 Washington St. in accordance with the following conditions:

 

1. That the following terms and conditions of the 1999 Special Permit remain in place;

a. That the building shall be limited to 2000 S.F.;

b. That outside sales shall be limited to gasoline and lubricant products only; and

c. That there shall be no sale of vehicles on the premises;

  1. That the hours of operation shall be limited to Monday to Saturday 6 A.M. to 10 P.M. and Sunday 6 A.M. to 8 P.M.; and
  2. That no truck deliveries shall back up from Washington St. onto the site.

 

The Planning Board, in forwarding this favorable recommendation to the City Council, determined that providing a Dunkin’ Donuts on opposite sides of the street would provide traffic relief from left hand turns in and out of the sites.

 

If members of the City Council have any questions or concerns regarding the foregoing recommendation, please feel free to contact me.

 

Sincerely, s/Edmund P. Tarallo, Planning Director

 

Appearing for the petitioner was Attorney Joseph Tarby III, Murtha Cullina LLP, 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, Massachusetts 01801 and he stated that the property is located in the O-P zoning district, that the fast food use is allowed by special permit, that there are two gasoline fueling islands, that there is an 1,850 to 2,000 square foot accessory retail store including a 550 square foot sandwich shop in an area that is proposed to be used by Dunkin Donuts, that the petitioner will install within the existing sandwich area a satellite Dunkin Donuts shop, that there will be three employees working in the Dunkin Donuts area, that the petitioner is part of the cooperative, that they use a commissary in Lawrence, that they have control over deliveries, that there are specific instructions given to drivers for delivery to sites, and that that hours of the Dunkin Donuts on the opposite side of Washington Street are 4:00 a.m. to 12:00 midnight which exceed the hours of operation on the locus as allowed by the special permit issued in 1999. Attorney Tarby offered a copy of a memorandum dated May 12, 2006 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. Attorney Tarby offered a sample driver delivery instruction sheet for the City Council to review. Motion made and 2nd that the document be received and made part of the record, all in favor, 9-0. F. Giles Ham, P.E., Vanesse & Assoc. Inc., 10 New England Business Center Drive, Suite 314, Andover, Massachusetts 01810 stated that there is no drive-thru component to the petition, that the petitioner has 60 to 70 customers per hour, that 60% of the business is conducted by 11:00 a.m., that this will be a busy site, that this will provide relief to the traffic at the existing Dunkin Donuts on Washington Street, that there will be truck deliveries of paper goods, that there will be two box truck deliveries each day at 5:00 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. with donut and bagel products, that the business can be accommodated on the site although it will be busy and has the benefit of giving relief to the other facility, and that the petitioner has agreed to erect a “no left turn” sign at the curb cut onto Washington Street but the reality is that most customers will exit out of the Cedar Street curb cut. John Micalizzi, 35 Archibald Road, Methuen, Massachusetts stated that handicapped parking has been provided, that the dumpster is screened with a chain link fence, that he would not object to a restriction prohibiting outside banners, that he has been in business at that location for fifteen years and snow removal has never been an issue, and that he pushes the snow to the back of the building. Alderman Denaro stated that he is concerned with the delivery of Dunkin Donuts products to the various locations in the city and the impact of the delivery vehicles which park without regard to conditions in the area when making the deliveries, that if he continues to see delivery vehicles parking in improper locations or parked in the wrong direction then these issues will have to be dealt with, and that the delivery trucks should not be parked on Washington Street or Cedar Street for deliveries to this locus or that will cause a problem. Alderman Drapeau stated that he would like the Dunkin Donuts hours of operation to be the same as the hours for the Dunkin Donuts across the street or the purpose of the petition will be defeated. Alderman Ciriello stated that the use will not attract more Dunkin Donuts users but will just split up the traffic.

Alderman Ciriello stated that he supports ZORC review and input, and that there are no resources available to move with this now.
