Planning Board to hear development proposals

The Planning Board at its meeting on Feb. 21 will hold a public hearing on an application by Liscotti Development Corp. for site plan approval and three special permits for a mixed-use development it proposes to build at 201 Middlesex Turnpike. Bank of America formerly operated a branch at the site, but has since closed it, leaving only a drive-through ATM. One of the special permits is to include a coffee shop with the planned development. Another is to allow a new drive-through window for the coffee shop. The third would allow the drive-through ATM to remain. In other business, the board will hold a public hearing on special permit application by New Age Oriental Therapy. The business, which operates at Burlington Mall, wants to move to a different space in the mall. The board will also continue a public hearing into a proposal to add a section to the town’s zoning bylaw to govern outdoor lighting in town. Paul Valleli, a Town Meeting member, has submitted the proposal as an article for the annual Town Meeting in May. Thursday’s meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall.
