The Planning Board (April 16, 7 pm) will weigh in on whether the HDC should grant Harborcorp a special “Conditional Use Permit” to grow to 60 feet. Harborcorp is already 50% bigger than Portwalk III in a part of town many fret is headed for canyonization, traffic gridlock and parking trouble.
Here’s one critic’s take on why it’s fair to say no: Why the Planning Board should deny Harborcorp CUP Application (1) April 13 2015 And here’s his take on the megabuilding’s proportions: Why Harborcorp is too big etc vs other buildings

When the HDC gets the case, you can email it via firstname.lastname@example.org.
