I haven't looked, but most of the Council packets are online and if they've submitted a full application to the Council, it should be included in one of those packets. Check the City Clerk website. http://gloucester-ma.gov/Archive.aspxLeland33 wrote: I viewed dozens and dozens of Dolben developments and liked about 10% of them - the others meh.
I am surprised that a "preliminary" "conceptual level" drawing or photo is not available for a building that is on public land sold to the Fuller consortium.
The public flying blindly I guess "nice" as you mentioned Karly is okay but "very nice" would be better.
After all these years the public should have an idea of the conceptual/preliminary design. Both interior and exterior.
Yeah...since it isn't going to the full council for awhile and it is already November I didn't think so either. Though the reason I said "I think" is because I didn't write that part down. They may well have said "early 2018" but I doubt that is happening either.jasongrow wrote:HA! Seriously, they have trouble reading both our GZO AND calendars??? There's only 3 (maybe 4 if they meet on the day after Christmas) Council meetings until the new council is sworn in on the 1st... I don't expect a lot more movement on this project until the financial analysis is finished and submitted to the council... The sewer issue still hasn't been resolved to my knowledge... I kinda don't think they're breaking ground in January.Karly wrote: The developer said last night they hope to break ground in January 2018 I think.
Is there any chance that the city will back out of the deal because the builder is not kowtowing to the affordable housing demands?Cathy (Admin) wrote: The City Council agenda for December 12 lists a public hearing for the Fuller project special permit with a notation that it is to be continued to January 23.

The City calendar lists a Special City Council meeting for Wednesday, December 13, 5:30 PM - 6:00 PM in the auditorium and a Special P&D meeting for Wednesday, December 13, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM in the auditorium. Agendas have not yet been posted.
Is that Fuller related? There have been no P&D minutes posted online since the October 18 meeting and none have been inlcuded in the online agenda packets for City Council (they are noted in the packet as being provided "under separate cover" which I assume means that the Council does get them in hard copies but the minutes were not available at the time of the posting of the packet online), so I've lost track of where the permit process is at with P&D.
All three current P&D members will still be on the Council for the next term, but the new Council president will make committee assignments for the new term.
What can we do to get them to listen? maybe we can get the schools to only build one school that would be nice and a savings to taxpayers not that the school committee cares about that.plus we would have the added bonus of not having 200 more units to crowd the city.Damon wrote: There has been much talk about building whatever
schools we need on the Fuller lot. However the
important people are not the ones talking about it.
We are not important.
