Chocolate factory rezoning fails

Continue reading below

An article to rezone the former Lowney’s chocolate factory to allow it to be converted into condominiums was narrowly defeated at Town Meeting earlier this month, leaving some wondering about the future of the building. “It’s a gorgeous old building. The last thing that anyone wants is for it to be torn down,” said Selectman Olivier Kozlowski. He said some planning board members objected to the building’s conversion to housing, saying they hold out hope that another industrial user can be found for it. Other voters were concerned about the impact that roughly 100 additional households might have on schools. Kozlowski said he would potentially like to see the huge building in the north end of town used as a satellite college campus.
