DISBAND ZONING BOARD, COUNCILMAN SAYS
Fair Haven Councilman Ben Lucarelli (right) has been in the construction and real estate business more than 20 years, and in that time has appeared before countless zoning board all over the state.
None has treated applicants as badly as Fair Haven’s, he said.
So after attending last week’s zoning meeting, and being completely appalled by its members’ actions, Lucarelli has made a bold proposal: disband the board and fold its duties into the planning board’s authority.
“I was appalled at the arrogant, condescending, mean-spirited nature of the zoning board,” he said. “This was just a very bad example of how the residents of Fair Haven are being treated.”
And nobody on the council, which at least once before tried to disband the nine-member board, disagreed.
