Planning board will reconsider Eastern Boulevard church project


The city’s Planning Board will discuss on Tuesday a tabled site plan for a 12,500-square-foot multiuse addition for Parkside Bible Church, 491 Eastern Blvd. The church wants to build the addition to accommodate more classroom space and a gymnasium/multiuse room.

In October, the Planning Board delayed taking action on the site plans for the $1.5 million project because it had concerns about access for fire trucks. The church has submitted modified plans that address the concerns.

The city’s Planning Department also has raised concerns about 43 mature trees that would be lost because church officials want to open that part of the property for lawn areas. The Planning Department would like to keep those trees, noting their importance for the urban forest in that area.

Last week, city officials said the issue over the trees may have been worked out. The Planning Board meets at 7 p.m. in the third-floor council chambers of City Hall, 245 Washington St.
