Planning Board Special Meeting – NEW DATE!!!

Important Announcement from Mayor Michael P. Cahill Regarding Cancellation of Planning Board Special Meeting Scheduled for Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.

Since a member of the Planning Board is unable to attend the special meeting scheduled for February 24, 2015 due to an unforeseen personal matter, the meeting has been cancelled and further consideration of CEA’s special permit application will be scheduled for the Board’s regular meeting on Tuesday, March 17, 2015 at 7 p.m. at the Senior Center, 90 Colon Street, Beverly.  The entire Planning Board has been committed to a thorough review of the proposed North Shore Crossing project throughout a public hearing that has spanned six nights.  Therefore, the Chair, in consultation with the Mayor’s Office and the Planning Department, determined that the best course of action is to postpone the matter so that the full Board, which has been so engaged during the entire process, can be present for the final step of deliberating and voting on the application.

It is common practice for the Planning Board to continue a matter under these circumstances.  I fully support the Chair’s decision to have the full complement of the Planning Board present for what will be an important vote.”
