ZBA Hearings May Resume
After two months of delays of public hearings and most other substantial business, the Truro Zoning Board of Appeals may begin to hold hearings again in the next few weeks.
Jeff Ribeiro, the town planner, told ZBA members on May 28 that there does not appear to be a foreseeable end to the limits on social gatherings. He said he would speak with Town Manager Rae Ann Palmer and possibly town counsel to determine if ZBA hearings can be done virtually, as already happens in many other towns.
Since March, ZBA meetings have been limited to “procedural only” and the public has been asked to hold off on submitting any new applications for zoning relief.
Virtual meetings are “certainly not ideal,” Ribeiro said at the May 18 meeting. “There are connectivity issues in Truro.”
The hearing on the Cloverleaf, which would be the largest affordable housing development in Truro’s history with 40 units, has been put off due to the restrictions on public meetings. But Ribeiro now has it on the schedule for June 25 at 5:30 p.m.
There are other cases before the ZBA as well, including an application to demolish and rebuild a pre-existing nonconforming cottage at 379 Shore Road, Ribeiro said. —K.C. Myers
