Bridgewater Town Council will hold public hearings and consider approval of special-use permits for construction of a greenhouse/garden center and a residential subdivision during its Tuesday night.
Dale Heatwole has requested two special-use permits for a project that involves building duplexes and a few single-family dwellings on 69 lots in a 14-acre vacant parcel, said Betsy Putney, town clerk.
“They have already built Ashby Villa subdivision, and this is an extension of that subdivision,” she said.
The land is zoned for residential use, but special-use permits are required due to the types of the homes and the design of some of the lots.
Also, Larry French, owner of Randy’s Do It Best Hardware store, has requested a special-use permit to place a 10-foot-by-20-foot greenhouse or garden center on an adjacent lot at 200 N. Main St., Putney said.
The land is zoned for business use, but the town’s ordinance requires a special-use permit for greenhouses.
