Site Plan Review-Notice of Decision
Applicant: The Meadows Condominium Trust
1 Floret Circle
Hingham, MA 02043
Premises: The Meadows Condominium
Hingham. MA 02043
Date: August 4, 2015
Summary of Proceedings
In accordance with Section I-G of the Zoning By-law, the Hingham
Planning Board conducted Site Plan Review relative to the application of
The Meadows Condominium Trust for a minor site plan, waiver of the
public hearing requirement, and waiver of the site plan submittal
requirement "e" in association with the proposal to permit the
replacement of a storage tent with a 16' x 40' storage shed for Tools
& Equipment & request for relief under Section I-I 5, property
zoned Residence D.
The application for Site Plan was filed at the Planning Board on July
29, 2015. The Planning Board heard this request at their regularly
scheduled meeting of August 3, 2015 with Planning Board members Sarah
Corey, Chairman, Judith Sneath, Gary Tondorf-Dick, and Walter Sullivan
There was a existing fenced in temporary tent structure in the same
location that was used to house tools and equipment, but it collapsed
over this past winter due to the snow loads. At this time the
Condominium Trust has proposed to construct a permanent 16' x 40'
structure to replace the collapsed structure. The location is central
to the development, adjacent to the tennis courts, and not visible
outside of the Condominium. The Condominium is the applicant and they
hope to have the building installed as soon as possible.
The Applicant asked that the Board determine that this is a minor
site plan and waive the public hearing requirement. The Applicant also
requested a waiver of submittal requirement (e) "detailed information
on utilities, lighting, landscaping, refuse storage and removal", and
then review the site plan criteria making findings and conditions.
The Board verified that this was replacing a structure that collapsed
under the snow last winter, and, that there would be no outside lights.
The site is developed and this is a accessory building for storage of
maintenance tools and equipment.
Decision and Vote
After considering the scope and substance of the application and
request, the Planning Board determined that the project constituted a
minor site plan in accordance with Section I-I (5) b, and it was moved,
seconded and SO VOTED to waive the public hearing requirement.
The Board then found that the site is built out and as such it is
reasonable to waive the submittal requirement (e) "detailed information
on utilities, lighting, landscaping, refuse storage and removal", as
requested. It was then moved, seconded and SO VOTED to waive the
submittal requirement (e) "detailed information on utilities, lighting,
landscaping, refuse storage and removal", as requested.
The Board then considered the scope of the project and Moved,
Seconded and SO VOTED to waive Site Plan Review for the project as
proposed and presented to permit the replacement of a storage tent with a
16' x 40' storage shed for Tools & Equipment on property known as 1
Floret Circle, a.k.a, The Meadows.
