Mystery project for ’12

Zoning changes and a “fairly large” development could be on Holbrook’s agenda for 2012, Planning Board chairman R. Wayne Crandlemere said. The board has spoken informally with a developer about building on land behind the landfill, he said, but the project could have problems with access. “Normally you can’t do commercial if the only way to get to it is through residential,” he said. Crandlemere declined to reveal the name of the developer or give further details about the plan, saying no application has been filed with the board. “His initial thoughts were residential. We’d have to consider if other uses would be allowed,” he said. - Jennette Barnes
