Re: Site Plan Review in Association with Special Permit A3

Summary of Proceedings
At a duly noticed public hearing at the meeting of September 12, 2016, Planning Board members William C. Ramsey, Acting Chairman, Gary Tondorf-Dick, and Jennifer Gay Smith heard the application of PERRY BAC SHIPYARD, LLC for Site Plan Approval under § I-G and § I-I, and a Special Permit A3 parking determination under § V-A of the Zoning By-Law and such other relief as necessary, in association with a Major Modification to the Hingham Shipyard Mixed-Use Special Permit originally issued May 12, 2003, as amended most recently to November 5, 2015, under § IV-G, to allow modification of the approved residential building and associated parking, and a reduction in the number of dwelling units from 83 to 77 at 10 AND 0 SHIPYARD DRIVE in the Industrial District. The Planning Board heard the application at their meeting of September 26, 2016 with all Board members in attendance. Judith S. Sneath and Sarah H. Corey both noted for the record that they had listened to the recording of the September 12th meeting and completed a Mullins Affidavit for the file. The Board continued the hearings to the meeting of October 3rd, at which meeting the panel consisted of Judith S. Sneath, Sarah H. Corey, Jennifer Gay Smith and Gary Tondorf-Dick.

The Applicant team included Jeffrey Tocchio, DTM; Scott Golding, DTM; Buzz Constable, Executive Vice President, AW Perry; Gabe Crocker, CHA; JB Clancy and John Tittmann from ART Architecture.

Project Description
The applicant team summarized the changes from the previous Samuels approval, including an increase in open space, reduction in number of units and number of bedrooms and the addition of 88 covered parking spaces as an amenity. There will also be a rooftop deck. The proposal is a change in form, but otherwise very similar to the existing approval. The Supplement to the Application states that there will be 154 parking spaces, which yields 2 spaces/unit and would not require relief. There is a request for the Board to waive the requirement for parking areas to be located on the same parcel (Section V-A. 2) and to waive the restriction that does not allow the parking assigned to a particular residential unit to be used toward the overall parking requirements (Section V-A.2.d). The same waivers were granted to the previous applicant.

Findings and Decision
After additional discussion, the Board found that the project as proposed has provided the required parking ratio of two spaces per unit and Moved, Seconded, and SO VOTED to Waive Site Plan Review in Association with the Special Permit A3.
