(Continued)

Giordano has said he is considering a separate lawsuit against the city for illegally denying him the right to develop his land. He said he has been trying to develop the property for more than five years and that the city has fought him “every step of the way.”

According to city tax records, Giordano bought the property in 2006 for $7,500. He said he has spent about $150,000 in legal fees and other expenses trying to develop it.

If he prevails, Giordano said he intends live in the home he wants to build. His proposal also includes a second smaller building that Giordano said he would likely use as a garage. He also said he might keep a horse on the property.

Council President Robert Scatamacchia said Giordano still needs approval from the Conservation Commission and a building permit before he can be begin construction.

“It’s a long process and there’s still a ways to go,” Scatamacchia said.
