FINALLY some solid progress towards developing the Birdseye site (sore eye site!) on Pavillion Beach. The 3 members of the Gloucester planning board have voted unanimously to recommend and approve the "hotel overlay zone". The proposal now goes before the whole city council Tuesday 5/8/12 at 7PM. All are invited.
If the "overlay zone" passes, the Beauport developers will make a formal application to build the hotel. In an editorial yesterday, the Gloucester Daily Times calls it "an early step" needed "to keep this project on track". Click to see the entire editorial.
