MODspeaker McGranaghan is told
"Patience is a good virtue" at the May 4th Planning Board Meeting
approval for another two weeks with conditions, with the next meeting being held Thursday, May 18th.
Towards the end of the public forum, Liz McGranaghan spoke out that the longer wait could potentially hurt the businesses. Planning board member Niles Schore responded "Patience is a good virtue."
"I understand why the procedures are in place, but it can be easy to lose patience in this process we are itching to get going and keep our momentum...some days, it feels we are stuck in the red tape like flies on fly paper, but really, we got this." Thomas said "Instead of losing our patience, we will get creative, that's what we do best."
One Sullivan spokesperson Frank Underwood presented the updated building plans to the Board with his building owner partners in attendance along with potential tenants MODspoke, Corner Point Brewing Company and several town residents, including Pine Hill resident Jeff Soucier who stated "It's a great plan for the Town of Berwick...a dock up there to have access to the river...it's great stuff right there, and would be wonderful for this town."
There was no one in attendance that took up any issues with any of the current plans, so if all goes well, May 18th will be another very important date for the next phase of downtown Berwick.
