Chester Planning and Zoning to Hold Public Hearing on Two Special Permit Applications

CHESTER–The planning and zoning commission has scheduled an August 5 public hearing on special permit applications for two projects that could boost economic development in town. The hearings convene at 7:30 p.m. at the Chester Meeting House on Liberty St.

An application from Airport Industrial Park LLC (owner), and Hull Management LLC (applicant) calls for a 50-foot by 50-foot steel building on a one-acre parcel at the Airport Industrial Park off Route 145. The company provides engineering development and prototype manufacturing for machine products that are sold to other companies. The site plan includes parking four to five employees and two to three visitors, and predicts “light to moderate” truck traffic for delivery and shipping of products and materials.

A second special permit application seeks approval for a Bliss Supermarket in a vacant building at 56 Middlesex Avenue (Route 154) near the intersection of Route 154 and Main Street. The commercial parcel is owned by 56 Middlesex Avenue LLC, the applicant is John DeFrino.
