Neighbors not relenting on Brimbal project

(Continued)

Meanwhile, CEA Group needs a special permit from the city’s Planning Board in order to build the shopping plaza. The board must consider several factors before granting the special permit, including traffic and objections from abutting property owners.

The City Council must also vote a second time to approve the zoning change, although that is considered a technicality.

The attorney representing developer CEA Group said yesterday that the shopping plaza cannot be built until the state completes the $5 million traffic project.

Tom Alexander said the traffic project could start next spring or summer “in the best-case scenario” and take about a year.

If that’s the case, he said, “(CEA Group) wouldn’t be able to look to do their project, assuming they get the necessary permits, until 2015.”
