Truro Town Council has approved a development agreement that would allow all units in a Dominion Street building to be occupied.
Olfi Properties Incorporated had applied for an agreement because the Property Valuation Service’s Corporation listed the property at 25 Dominion St. as having 12 units, but it contains 14. The town’s building inspector visited the property and found all units meet building code requirements.
A 14-unit building would normally require 14 parking spaces but there is only space for seven or eight vehicles in the lot at the back of the building. A recent visit by town officials found two of the parking spaces were occupied by a dumpster and patio furniture. There is public parking nearby so planning staff felt a relaxation of normal parking requirements was reasonable.
The building also has very little green space, but staff felt that wouldn’t be a problem because there is recreational space in the downtown area.
