On Wednesday, the Zoning Board of Appeals accepted an application to demolish the house at 418 State Street and build a new house in its place. According to the applicant, the existing house has been determined to be structurally unsound. The house is not located in a historic district.
The facade of the proposed new house will align with the rest of the street wall, as the existing house does, but the new house will be positioned in the center of the lot instead of off to the left. The project is before the ZBA for area variances--both front and side setbacks.
A public hearing on the application has been scheduled for Wednesday, December 20, at 6 p.m., in City Hall.
