Board closes hearing on 4-house plan for ‘unbuildable’ lot in Rockland

ROCKLAND – An “unbuildable” lot on Concord Street could be getting four houses after the developer agreed to reduce their height. 

The developer, Lou Petrozzi, said he would reduce the height of the houses by 3 feet to bring them more in line with the height of the two houses on either side of the lot, which is at 320 Concord St.

The houses’ height has been a point of contention with zoning board members, who said they want the houses no taller, within a few feet, than the houses on either side. Rockland’s zoning attorney, Bob Galvin, said if Petrozzi agreed to a height restriction, the zoning board could make it a condition, but the houses would be shorter than the town’s limits.
