Fordway apartment plan concerns neighbors


Another Rose Avenue resident, John Blaikie, shared Fairbanks’ concerns about the water.

“I never had water in my basement until Bunker Hill was built,” he said.

He said his street is small and he also worries about the children and safety.

Planning Director George Sioras said his office was once located in a building in that area of town and he witnessed water problems and flooding following hard winters and snow melts. He recommended the group do a site walk of the property.

Peloquin said developers are working hard to make sure there is low impact to those living nearby.

He said he already met with the town’s Highway Safety Committee. That group said a traffic study was not needed.

“It’s a nice site plan,” he said. “The building will be as close to the intersection as possible to limit impact to abutters.”

Sioras said the walk would be a good thing to do to see the property.

He said there are more apartment complex plans in the town’s pipeline.

“We need to look at what’s there today,” he said.

The site walk is set for June 7 at 8:30 a.m. The plan will come before the board again at a meeting Wednesday, June 18.
