PETITION TO DISPUTE VARIANCE PROPOSALS FOR BUILDING ON 85-105 MYRTLE STREET
July 30, 2019

Myrtle Street LLC is attempting many variances to the zoning laws for a big building on Myrtle Street.

They are trying to get variances at town hall on August 7 at 7 pm at 1305 Hancock Street, Old Town Hall, first floor. We can go and are invited to speak out.

The height of the proposed building is 3 stories along the South back side of Walnut and 5 stories at end of Walnut. The South Side of Walnut Street the setback for a 3 story should be 25 feet. The proposed Building will run the length of Myrtle Street at 3 stories and will curve into 86 and 92 Walnut Street at the end near the river at 5 stories high in the proposal.

They are proposing 15 foot setback behind the houses on Walnut Street. The setback should be 25 along the back side of Walnut street.

They are also proposing a 10 and 15 foot setback at the end next to and behind 86 Walnut Street! This would destroy 86 Walnut Street’s value completely. And and it would also destroy 92 Walnut Street’s value as well.

The setback law is 25 feet or more for a five story building. The zoning for our neighborhood is 3 stories. They are proposing 5 stories and attempting to be very, very close to our houses.

Sign this petition if you disagree with the reduction in setbacks for the Myrtle Street proposal. Please sign this if you’d like the developers to stay at 3 stories and keep their 25 foot setbacks. Please include your name, address and phone number.

Please go to the meeting to dispute this as well. 

Please also send an email to jking@quincyma.gov and list the reasons why you do not want this variance to the setback! Give as many reasons as you can!

Thank you for your help.
