The North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) supported two applications at its Monday night meeting on September 9, 2013. A scheduled parking discussion with the Boston Transportation Commissioner was cancelled at the last minute due to a scheduling conflict. BTD Commissioner Thomas Tinlin is expected to appear at the October 15th NEWNC meeting.
(09:40 in video) NEWNC voted 8-1 to support a zoning variance for Anthony Martignetti (M.G. Martignetti, LLC) at 6 Foster Street to change the occupancy of a three family dwelling to a four family. The first floor unit will be expanded into the basement and a new one-story addition with a roof deck will create the fourth unit. The council engaged in an extended discussion with the applicant regarding the proposed roof deck.
