Housing development OK'd in Salem

(Continued)

Concerns about drainage prompted another abutter to sue the town for approving the project in 2010, Moldoff said. The lawsuit was later withdrawn.

Board members had numerous questions about the project, but only Phyllis O’Grady voted in opposition.

“I think it could work if it had a lot less houses on this hill,” O’Grady said. “At this time, I’m still not going to approve it.”

The board also approved a request from the Boys & Girls Club of Salem to keep a 40-foot storage trailer behind its building at 3 Geremonty Drive.

The trailer was donated to the club by Victorian Park owner Larry Belair, who is closing his miniature golf course and family entertainment center this fall after 22 years.

But town regulations prevent the club from keeping the trailer on its property for more than a year unless it receives a variance, Moldoff said.

Boys & Girls Club representative Mark Gross said the club would use the trailer to store athletic equipment.
