New Carriage House on Partition Street
A new carriage house is being built on Partition Street, behind 111 Union Street. It has a two-stall garage, above which it appears there will be living space, with three large windows commanding a view of the mountains and the river. There's a building permit displayed at the site, duly signed by Code Enforcement Officer Peter Wurster. The problem is that Partition Street is part of a locally designated historic district, and the plans for this building never came before the Historic Preservation Commission for a certificate of appropriateness.
