The Harbor View Neighborhood Association (HVNA) released the voting results from their February meeting earlier this month.
HVNA members voted 29 to 12 in favor of the project at 61-63 Horace Street, a project that calls for the construction of three-units of housing with parking.
Richard Lynds, the attorney for owners Terese and Richard Riamondi, said his clients own the two-family home at 61 Horace but recently acquired the vacant lot next door.
The lot is large enough to construct two, two-family homes but the Riamondi’s plan to build one three-unit building.
Lynds said the building would be three stories and the units would be one, one-bedroom and two, three-bedroom units. They will all be homeownership.
At the meeting, HVNA gave kudos to the project’s architect Frank Delmuto and Lynds for listening to the community on the scale and design of the proposal.
“I like this project and I like that this is under 35 feet,” said one member. “Thank you, Frank (Delmuto) and Rich (Lynds) for listening to the community and coming down to 35 feet. For the first time, for me anyway, we have enough parking and a good design. I support this project. It’s everything we asked for. A family could move in the home and I love the greenspace.”
