denise pascucci started this petition to Gloucester's Planning and Development Committee

The Gloucester School Committee will be seeking a building height relief from the Planning & Development Committee  on Wednesday, May 19th. This proposed massive structure located at 11 Webster Street will sit on the current location of the Joseph S. Mattos Field and Veterans’ Memorial Elementary School . This densely populated neighborhood  is zoned  R20 which has a height maximum of 30 feet. The request seeks a relief of approximately 24+ feet creating a building estimated at 54’   Traffic flow & safety, neighborhood character, social structure, qualities of the natural environment and potential fiscal impact must be considered. 
The once Webster’s Pond with surroundings and wetlands, where the water beneath the ground continues to feed the  FRAGILE coastal Eco-system the great marsh and an estuary at the back of Good Harbor Beach is choked by two thru ways and crowded neighborhoods. The amount of OPEN SPACE at Mattos Field is PRICELESS!!!!!  This SUPER- SIZED building proposal is an environmentally unjust project!!  SAY NO!
