Leonard Provost, of 157 High St., said he worries about added congestion in the area.
“I just don’t think it fits in the neighborhood,” he said.
Dan Drover, of 126 High St., said parking in the neighborhood is very limited. Drover said he is not against renovating the two-family house that’s already there, but will oppose the construction of a three-family structure on the site.
If the project wins approval, Veterans Northeast Outreach Center will own and manage the property. Terry Holland, a member of the Community Preservation Committee, said he has visited some of the homes the organization manages in Haverhill and was impressed by their “immaculate appearance.”
The Community Preservation Committee did not act on the Veterans Housing Task Force’s proposal last night. The committee will vote on recommendations on how to spend the community preservation money before the May 21 annual Town Meeting.
