Chester Planning and Zoning Approves Plans for Building at Airport Industrial Park, Supermarket Withdrawn for Revisions

The planning and zonining commission has approved plans for a new building at the Airport Industrial Park, while a proposal for a supermarket at a vacant building on Route 154 has been withdrawn for revisions.

The commission last week approved a special permit allowing Hull Management LLC to construct a 50-foot-by 50-foot steel building at the industrial park off Route 145. The panel acted after a public hearing where the project drew no objections. The company performs engineering design and prototype manufacturing for machine products.

A special permit application from 56 Middlesex Avenue LLC and John Defrino for a Bliss supermarket in the vacant commercial building at 56 Middlesex Avenue, also known as Route 154, was withdrawn before the scheduled Aug. 5 public hearing. Judy Brown, zoning enforcement officer, said a new special permit application is being prepared for an organic market in the building. She said a public hearing on the plan is expected in September.
