Council green lights industrial park appraisals

February 29, 2012
SOUTHBRIDGE — The industrial park took a small step forward Monday, Feb. 27, when the Town Council unanimously approved giving Town Manager Christopher Clark the green light to get appraisals for an area of about 10 acres.

"I did receive a letter of interest, so I believe we should start to market this area," Clark said. After the meeting, he expanded on that by saying "we have an offer to buy four acres, but he knows it has to go out to bid."

Specifically, Clark is referring to the swath of town-owned land on the north side of Commercial Drive, where one section meets the "frontage" and other legal requirements to be considered "approval not required" land. That term, Councilor Larry Spinelli said, doesn't have anything to do with the Council, though. It's a Planning Board concept under which a proposal does not have to go through the formal public hearing process, but still gets board review, and if it meets the various zoning, construction and other standards, the board signs off on it.
