HEARINGS, MEETINGS & LICENSES

Meeting with Housing Sub-Committee – Public Hearing – RE: Policy Statement and Affordable Housing Plan

Chairman Perkins opened the hearing.

Mr. Healey recognized members of the Housing Sub-Committee, including Karen Gallipoli, Darrin DeGrazia, Paul Colarusso, Bruce Atwood, Patrick Gaughan and David Maddigan.

Mr. Healey told the Board that he and Mr. Maddigan had attended a Housing Conference in Marlborough this week entitled "Have It Your Way". Mr. Healey said the conference verified that the Town is on the right track with the development of the Plan.

Mr. Healey said that the Committee had spoken to people who had raised issues and questions, and had incorporated the changes. These included identifying a specific are of the Town where the availability of Town services support the development of higher density subsidized housing for the elderly, families and individuals.

Mr. Healey suggested an ad hoc working group be formed to allow further resident input. A final work product should be completed by the end of August.

Selectwoman Brunelle asked what would happen if proposed bylaws did not pass. Mr. Healey said these would evolve over time, and if they did not pass, it would not be implemented.

Neil Rosenthal said that the Committee has had a tough job in developing this plan. He was concerned with creating a ghetto area in the downtown area to achieve the 10%. He said the other alternative would be to let the market dictate, without the hope of reaching the 10%. His concern was for the density. He told the Board that the qualify of life impact needs to be taken into consideration, not only the fiscal impact.

Mr. Rosenthal suggested additional language in the plan that would suggest that the Town buy houses in the affordable range, and then resell them with deed restrictions for affordable housing.

John Evers, 179 Cherry Street, asked for clarification on the Plan. He asked if it was strictly for affordable housing, or small development areas, i.e. a contractor who proposes 40 – 50 houses, creating 10% affordable.

Mr. Healey explained that it was both. Currently, if a contractor proposes a higher development, under 40B, they go to the ZBA, not the Planning Board. If denied, the State can override and authorize.

Mr. Healey said that the State has suggested that they will uphold rejections made by the Town if they are trying to be the "good guys" and create affordable housing.

Jane Lopes asked how many affordable housing permits have been issued and developed, or are capable of being developed, and how many are presently before the ZBA.

Bruce Atwood, Chairman of the ZBA, was present. He said there is currently one (1) 40B project being developed off of Plymouth Street, and one on Peirce Street that was started seven (7) years ago. This will be coming back before the ZBA. Other than that, there are only rumors of what might be coming before the ZBA.

Hearing no further comments, Chairman Perkins closed the hearing.

Upon motion by Selectwoman Brunelle and seconded by Selectman Eayrs, the Board

VOTED: To adopt the proposed Policy Statement and Affordable Housing Plan as presented.

Unanimous Vote.

Discussion ensued on creating an ad hoc committee. Selectwoman Brunelle asked for the group to be defined. Mr. Healey said he would like to open it up to anyone on the Planning Board, ZBA, Board of Selectmen, and residents of the Town.

Upon motion by Selectman Eayrs and seconded by Selectwoman Brunelle, the Board

VOTED: To created an ad hoc committee to allow further input.

Unanimous Vote.

The Board will ask for recommendations on the specifics of the committee from the Town Manager and the Housing Sub-Committee.

Interviews with Washburn Mill Proposers

The Board had received three (3) proposals for the development of Washburn Mill property. Each applicant has been invited in for an interview by the Board.

Chairman Perkins noted that the Board had asked for input from the Historical Commission and the Washburn Mill Property Committee. He read a letter from the Historical Commission that made the following recommendation: "that the Board of Selectmen consider the National Register status of the grain mill building and adjacent freight house while reviewing proposals for the reuse of the property." The Commission did not make a specific recommendation.

Neil Rosenthal spoke on behalf of the Washburn Mill Committee. He thanked those who had served on the Committee. He suggested the Board choose a proposal and then negotiate before writing off the other proposals. He felt there was more than one reasonable proposal.

Each of the proposers were asked to give opening statements, and then were asked to answer following questions:

  1. Estimated cost of total project when completed.
  2. Is the developer dependent on Federal/State grants, local tax incentives and/or seeking special conditions from the Town in order to bring the development project to fruition?
  3. Is Easement over MBTA property required for development of project?
  4. Is special permitting required for the proposed project build-out and uses?
  5. How does potential increase in vehicular traffic from proposed development impact residents and businesses in the immediate area?
  6. What type of infrastructure improvements (sidewalks, roadway, and drainage) will developer provide as part of development project?
  7. Is developer able to have financing "in place" for complete project prior to conveyance of property?
  8. Does developer have need of 3 full years to complete development of site?
  9. What types of buildings are being proposed for the site (placement, size, height and exterior appearance)?
  10. What specific issues, if any, on the part of the Town of Middleborough is the proposer seeking to have addressed prior to accepting conveyance of the site?

Donald Perham & Brian Reynolds

Mr. Reynolds told the Board that they are proposing to restore the mill and convert it to manufacture biscuits and mixes and crackers. They would also have several stores in the cement part of the building. The freight house would be used to create a farmer’s market.

Mr. Reynolds said that they have spoken to financial planners and business planners to make it a workable project. They would first start with the farmer’s market and those profits would go towards restoring the mill. Emergency repairs would be done as needed.

Mr. Reynolds said the structure above the first floor, the silo, could be used as an attraction for the Town, possibly an art gallery.

Mr. Perham said the roof would be done first. The freight house would be the easiest and would be done first.

Chairman Perkins asked the questions.

  1. $200,000 to secure the buildings – not talking machinery
  2. Individual private investors
  3. Possibly later, if a lot of traffic, for parking
  4. For traffic on roads – no specific permits required because it is zoned industrial use
  5. Rte. 28 – a foot bridge would possibly be constructed
  6. Road out of cobblestones, post lights, and curbing
  7. Not until they know he will get it – talking to people, but need more information
  8. Yes
  9. Maintained just as they are – would build a restroom in between the buildings
  10. Have patience – it would take the full three (3) years

Selectman Eayrs asked if any research has been done on having a farmer’s market in this area. Mr. Perham said an agricultural consultant out of UMASS Dartmouth has said this is workable.

Selectman Eayrs asked what the expected income would be. Mr. Reynolds said $17,500/month.

Selectman Eayrs asked if they would compete with the farmer’s market currently in Raynham. Mr. Reynolds said they would advertise to get people here.

Selectman Eayrs asked about the financing, and whether or not the men had personal assets to "float the project".

Mr. Reynolds said they are working on a financial package. Mr. Perham said he has personal assets available.

The men said there was a possibility of producing grain at the site. Discussion ensued on State sanitary codes, noting that they would also have a bakery.

Selectman Eayrs asked how much traffic would be generated, and whether or not it would be daily or just weekends. Mr. Perham said they would "play it by ear".

A resident of the Everett Square area asked if other repairs would be done, besides the roof, such as painting the buildings. Mr. Perham said cosmetics would also be addressed.

MBC Development, Inc. – Marcus Baptiste, Treasurer

Mr. Baptiste introduced Brian Cave, and Warren Lane, consultant. They would be part of the development team.

Mr. Baptiste said the grain mill would be developed into seven (7) one-bedroom affordable apartments, with one or two office condominiums in the walk-out basement. The freight house would be developed into twelve (12) two –bedroom unit apartments permitted under Chapter 40B.

The grain mill would be torn down. The concrete section would be torn down and not rebuilt. This would be used as a parking area.

The freight house would be demolished, as it does not sit on a foundation.

The total cost of the project would be approximately $2.1 million, and the proposers are seeking grants to cover most of the costs.

Chairman Perkins asked the questions.

  1. $2.1 million
  2. $400,000 on the grain mill and $2 – 300,000 on the freight house
  3. no – there is enough room to swing the road up on the property already owned off of Station Street
  4. 12 – units under 40B – all inclusive – one permit – nothing out of the ordinary
  5. 60 and 35 trips/day – depending on the design of the sites, which would determine which way traffic would come from the freight house
  6. A road from the freight house with drainage to support – sidewalk connecting – grain mill parking area – drainage, and dress up the radius with a sidewalk and landscaping
  7. Yes- spoke to Rockland Trust – subject to grant money and permitting. They have expressed an interest in this project.
  8. 2 years from permitting
  9. grain mill – similar to the original, with no concrete addition. Some dormers would be gone, but the integrity of the original structure would be maintained. The freight house would remain similar in design, and would extend form 160’ – 190’. A porch roof would be constructed on the track side.
  10. Confirmation of receiving two (2) grants – a clean 21E – necessary approvals of Town Boards – a survey – approval of a 5 year tax assessment – demolition – approval of financing through the bank – possession would not be taken until all is finalized.

Chairman Perkins asked about the 5 year tax assessment. Mr. Baptiste said they are seeking a gradual tax assessment – 0% in the first year; 25% in the second year; 50% in the third year; 75% in the fourth year; and 100% in the fifth year.

Selectman Eayrs asked about the condition of receiving grants, and what would happen if they received one but not the other.

Mr. Baptiste said the grain mill would be completely undoable.

Selectman Eayrs asked what the filing deadlines are. Mr. Baptiste said September and January. Notification for both grants would be given in February of 2003. The transfer would not take place until this time.

Selectman Eayrs asked if Mr. Baptiste had any intentions of keeping any of the historical machines and devices in the building. Mr. Baptiste said he did not.

Selectman Eayrs noted the attachment to the grain mill. He suggested creating a historical flavor inside as well as outside. Mr. Baptiste said they would save as much of the timber as they could to use as beams.

Selectman Wiksten asked what the permitting time would be for the project. Mr. Baptiste said 6 – 9 months. The 40B permits and historical approval is in the hands of the Town.

Selectman Rogers asked if the project would be dropped if something was reported under 21E. Mr. Baptiste said it would depend on the size of the contamination. He said he did not anticipate finding anything, given the history of the building.

An abutter to the property asked if Mr. Baptiste planned on keeping the apartments "long term". Mr. Baptiste said they would not be paid off for about 20 – 30 years. They do plan on keeping them.

The abutter also asked about the noise from the trains. Mr. Baptiste said there are constructional techniques to minimize this, such as thicker walls and insulation on that side of the building.

Mr. Baptiste did not anticipate any problems in renting out the units, comparing the price and quality to what is currently on the market.

Daniel T. Costello

Tax Compliance Certificates and Certificates of Non-Collusion were presented by Mr. Baptiste and Mr. Costello. The first proposers were not in compliance with this request.

Mr. Costello, who had previously been before the Board with a proposal, said he has put more thought into this proposal. He said he would develop a saw mill, warehouse and mill work site. Timbers taken from other job sites would be reused and manufactured. He also would have custom cabinetry, moldings, floorings, and antique restoration.

The grain mill would be dismantled and reconstructed faithful to the current building design in style and appearance. It would contain office space and residential spaces would be created for rental to the public in the upper levels of the building. Commercial rental storage space would be included in the lower level.

The freight house would be repaired and rehabilitated to house a sawmill, millwork, and cabinetry shop.

Chairman Perkins asked the questions.

  1. $1.5 million
  2. Asking to participate in a TIF agreement – no Federal or State grants
  3. Yes
  4. No – in compliance with zoning usage now
  5. Some traffic with people coming to the building – Truck traffic would be less than 1 per hour
  6. Submitted site plan – full build out – parking area, curbs, landscaped areas
  7. Can get letters of intent to proceed
  8. Three year buildout plan – could be done faster
  9. Attractive and unusual design would be reminiscent of the characteristics of the present grainmill – exterior materials and colors would be similar
  10. No – would go through a process – some areas have not come up yet – would want a demolition permit upon conveyance

Selectman Eayrs asked why Mr. Costello had withdrawn his previous proposal. Mr. Costello said he did not withdraw, but did not comply with the deadline to submit proposals. He said he was not ready at that time, having some issues with the buildout and full utilization of space. He said the plan has not been changed substantially.

Selectman Eayrs asked about the expansion of the footprint of the freighthouse towards the Centre Avenue residents, and the noise.

Mr. Costello said the machinery will be in the freight house, furthest away. The expansion space would be warehouse space for storage, no machinery or activity would occur in that area.

Selectman Eayrs asked if the expansion was flexible, and if it could be reduced by 10 – 20’. Mr. Costello said it could not. He noted that he is allowed to build to the edge of the buffer zone because there is no setback requirement.

Selectwoman Brunelle said she did not anticipate a sawmill in this area and asked how the noise would be addressed.

Mr. Costello said that sawing equipment would be housed inside the building. He noted that there is much quieter and sophisticated equipment available now.

Selectwoman Brunelle asked if Mr. Costello was the successful bidder, would he commit to using materials to eliminate the noise. Mr. Costello said he would.

Selectman Wiksten noted that the area is a General Use area. The proposal would not generate noise for 24 hours.

Selectman Wiksten asked about the residential space. Mr. Costello said it might be used as work areas, for decorating or painting.

An abutter asked about the use of chemicals for refurbishing or removing paint. Mr. Costello said that technology is more sophisticated now, and there are dust control measures.

Selectman Eayrs asked when Mr. Costello was prepared to take possession of the property. Mr. Costello said he was ready now.

Chairman Perkins thanked everyone for their presentations.

Jane Lopes had no further comments. Mr. Rosenthal suggested that the Board keep other proposers "on the hook" noting that this is not the end of the process, and there is more than one viable proposal.

Selectwoman Brunelle said that the decision would be a tough one. She said she liked the idea of residential development, but was concerned with the delay in the conveyance of the land. She also liked the idea of turning the property back into a mill. She suggested taking the matter under advisement.

Selectman Wiksten said that all three (3) proposals were good. He does not believe it is a good location for strict residential property. He said he is willing to see a project with mixed use. He would like to see the Board act on this tonight.

Chairman Perkins addressed the three (3) proposals. He said the first proposal was ambitious, but the term is lengthy. However, the proposed use does not address taxes.

The second proposal is well thought out, but contains a lot of conditions. The time frame would be conditional on the permits. He said it did not maximize the site with other types of development. It also would not be a fast revenue generating project for the Town.

The third proposal is concise and starts up fast. It is a mixed use proposal that maximizes site and tax revenues for the Town. It would add affordable housing units and complies with existing zoning. No special permits would be required.

Upon motion by Selectman Eayrs and seconded by Selectman Wiksten, the Board

VOTED: To award the bid for the Washburn Mill Property to Costello Dismantling Co., Inc., and to begin negotiations.

Unanimous Vote.

MBC Development will be informed that they are the Board’s second choice.

Selectman Eayrs suggested the Board move as quickly as possible.

Selectwoman Brunelle noted that a TIF agreement would have to be approved at Town Meeting. Chairman Perkins said the P&S could be made contingent on that.

Mr. Costello was told that Mr. Healey will be his point of contact.

Chairman Perkins requested that Mr. Healey get the P&S going, and schedule to meet with Mr. Costello when he returns from his vacation.

Recommendations for Solid Waste System – Capital Planning Committee

Selectman Rogers thanked the Capital Planning Committee for developing the Report. He said there are three (3) components of Middleborough’s solid waste system: recycling; residential trash pickup and disposal; and the operation of the landfill which accepts municipal solid waste, sludge from the Town’s wastewater treatment facility; and construction and demolition materials (C&D).

In June 2001, Town Meeting authorized $2.3 million to construct Phase 3 at the landfill. The current contract with SEMASS will terminate in 2016.

The Capital Planning Committee has made the following recommendations:

General

The operation of a solid waste system (SWS) is an elective service provided for the Town of Middleborough's residents. Costs for this SWS are borne by the town as a combination of user fees, property taxes and grants.

The Town of Middleborough should evaluate the negatives of accelerated consumption of landfill space due to increasing tonnage allowances versus the plusses of full cost recovery. As the wastewater and drinking water systems are 'enterprise systems', the adoption of a policy to make the Solid Waste System an enterprise account could reduce charges against general government. It has been reported that some Massachusetts communities have policies that require 'elective services' to be 'user fee' supported and not supported by property taxes.

Working against an enterprise approach is the physical limitations of our landfill and the need to provide landfill space for 'future years'.

Middleborough is fortunate when compared to many communities in that the town has a disposal site or landfill. The landfill provides a service to the residents in that reduced costs are realized for C&D disposal and to wastewater rate payers for sludge disposal at a minimal cost, with small hauling fees.

Many residents in neighboring communities pay disposal costs (commonly called tipping and hauling fees) that exceed $ 150.00 annually.

Middleborough's 5404 households presently pay about $ 101.04 to have their trash picked up and delivered to SEMASS for burning.

The Board of Selectmen would be prudent to take steps to evaluate achieving as much cost recovery as possible to the solid waste system.

Recommendations

1. Weigh Station Rates for Residents with Permits

That the Board of Selectmen establish a fee of $ 0.03 a pound or sixty dollars per ton ($ 60.00) for to residents whom have exceeded their presently allowed 12 visits per year, with a minimum fee of $ 1.00, once the new weigh station or scale house is in operation.

2. That the Board of Selectmen authorize theTown Manager to work with the

Sanitation Department Superintendent and an independent consultant, such as

W. Gardner to develop a fiscal accounting system that can be provided to the

Board of Selectmen, beginning January, 2003 that outlines monthly revenue,

costs, debt service, charges and all necessary accounting system to illustrate

the operation and maintenace costs of the Town of Middleborough's - Solid

Waste System.

3. That the Board of Selectmen continue the present pricing system for Municipal

Solid Waste at a rate of $75.00 per ton.

4. That the Board of Selectmen continue the present residential landfill annual

permit fee for C&D and miscellaneous materials disposal at $ 5.00 for 12 visits.

5. That the Board of Selectmen continue the present pricing system for commercial

C&D disposal at a rate of $ 65.00 per ton.

6. That the Board of Selectmen authorize the Town Manager to evaluate the further

use of C&D fines or other options as cover material at the landfill and develop

recommendations.

7. That the Board of Selectmen authorize the Town Manager to discuss with existing C&D 'sophisticated' processing operations potential partnerships, in order to be prepared for new DEP 2003 Solid Waste Master Plan regulations and bring these recommendations to the Board by October 1, 2002 or if DEP delays the implementation of this rule, by January, 2003.

8. That the Board of Selectmen require the DPW - Sanitation Department to rewrite

the Towns Rules and Regulations by August 15, 2002 that will explain the weigh

station process, delete Commercial Fees/coupon system, update approved fees and clearly outline the operation of the Town's Solid Waste System.

9. That the Board of Selectmen consider a bagging or pay as you throw fee system

to generate revenue and encourage recycling if further SEMASS or DEP

regulations and costs become onerous.

10. That the Board of Selectmen authorize the DPW Sanitation Department to

institute disposal costs for refrigerators and air conditioners at $ 5.00 and

$ 10.00, respectively.

11. That the Board of Selectmen require that the DPW Sanitation Department eliminate the four free tires allowance and institute tire disposal fees that will reflect revenue neutral costs to the Town.

12. That the Board of Selectmen require that the DPW Sanitation Department

provide recommendations for a financial system for the receipt of cash monies

that will be collected at the landfill for items weighed at the new scale house.

13. That the Board of Selectmen require the DPW Sanitation Department to develop

new charges for rugs, tires and mattresses by August 1, 2002 for approval (by

the BOS).

14. That the Board of Selectmen authorize the preparation of an evaluation of full

cost recovery versus expected life of the landfill through the Town Manager's

office for future discussion.

 

Selectwoman Brunelle noted that Weston & Sampson had developed a full cost recovery analysis because of current issues with the C&D fines.

Mr. Healey said a decision will have to be made on whether or not to bring in more tonnage to get full cost recovery, which will use the landfill faster, or subsidize it with tax dollars to make it last longer. An analysis will be done on this.

Selectman Wiksten asked for an update on the scales. Mr. Healey said that the bid is about to be awarded. Construction should begin before the end of the summer and be completed in September 2002.

Selectman Wiksten disagreed with the recommendation to "pay as you throw". He also had concerns with eliminating four (4) free tires to be dumped. He suggested that Mr. Healey tough base with Donnie Boucher to get his opinion on this.

Selectman Wiksten said that developing a fiscal accounting system that can be provided to the Board of Selectmen was an excellent idea.

Selectman Wiksten also noted that many apartment buildings put their trash out for pick up. He asked if there is a policy on this.

Mr. Healey said that an owner-occupied, 3-family is the maximum. It was suggested that the DPW monitor this.

Selectman Eayrs noted that it would be very difficult to find another site for a landfill at this time. Chairman Perkins agreed and suggested the landfill should be open as long as possible. Both were opposed to charging for curbside pick-up.

Discussion ensued on whether or not to act on the recommendations tonight. Mr. Healey suggested that they accept those that they did not have concerns about.

Upon motion by Selectman Eayrs and seconded by Selectman Wiksten, the Board

VOTED: To adopt the June 2002 Recommendations to the Board of Selectmen presented by the Capital Planning Committee, without recommendations #9, 11 & 13.

Unanimous Vote.

Selectwoman Brunelle noted that there is still a problem with not fully recovering costs for the landfill operation. She had thought that rates were being developed to do this. She noted that residents are subsidizing the commercial haulers.

Selectman Wiksten agreed, but suggested that they wait until the scales are completed. He believes there will be an increase in revenues by charging by the pound. He suggested that the Board review these within the next 6 months, and adjust fees accordingly.
