Plans proceed for ale house near waterfront

(Continued)

Deirdre Buckley, an environmental analyst with the state Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, made note of the information. She said her organization, which acts as a fact-finding team, will get back to Leone and other interested parties in coming weeks.

Alex Strysky, an environmental analyst for the state Department of Environmental Protection, said that at this point, he does not see problems in siting the restaurant at the address.

Municipal Planning Director Andy Port, who also attended yesterday, said that the city supports the project if all regulations can be fulfilled.

Developers of the Merrimac Ale House must make presentations before other municipal boards, including the Planning Board, the Conservation Commission and possibly the Zoning Board of Appeals. Architects say that the bar-restaurant will be about 6,400 square feet.

Leone’s team appears to recognize that much paperwork is involved, and yesterday’s session was one of numerous presentations that the Ale House will make as part of the approval process.
