Scituate officials voted Tuesday to petition the state to remove the restrictions on uses of the Scituate Harbor Community Building, located at Pier 44. The restrictions were imposed when the town used so-called mitigation money from the MBTA Greenbush commuter line to purchase the property. The building cannot to be used for any type of business venture, house town government offices, or be used as storage. Currently, the building is used for occasional meetings or programs by local groups. Officials recently voted to allow community members to rent the space. According to Selectman John Danehey, removing the restrictions could allow such things as a senior center, a small restaurant, or a kayak rental site.
