Gazette Drops the Ball on St. Bart’s

CORRECTION

It happens sometimes that the editor “phones it in” on a story.  That was the case on the NAC meeting on June 9th, when I couldn’t be there.  The picture illustrating the St. Bart’s case was of the school but it should have shown the convent.

The application reads as follows:

  • APPLICATION DESCRIPTION
  • PERMIT FOR THE CREATION OF TWO (2) TENANT SPACES (SPACE 1 & 2) FROM ONE (1) TENANT SPACE ON 1ST FLOOR. SPACE 1 & 2 PROPOSED BUSINESS/PROFESSIONAL OFFICE. SPACE 3 – PROPOSED BUSINESS/PROFESSIONAL OFFICE (2ND FLOOR FRONT) AND ROOMING UNITS FOR MAXIMUM SIX (6) UNITS (SINGLE ROOM RESIDENCE) ON 2ND FLOOR REAR (SPACE 4) & ROOMING UNITS FOR MAXIMUM SEVENTEEN (17) UNITS (SINGLE ROOM RESIDENCE) ON ENTIRE 3RD FLOOR (SPACE 5) (TOTAL 23 UNITS). ALL OCCUPANTS ARE CAPABLE OF SELF PRESERVATION AND SELF SUSTAINING. NO OCCUPANTS UNDER THE JURISDICTION OF ANY COURT SYSTEM WITH ACCESSORY STORAGE FOR THE TENANTS IN BASEMENT IN AN EXISTING STRUCTURE CREATES A CONDITION OF MULTIPLE MAIN USES ON A LOT. FOR THE LEGALIZATION OF THE ERECTION OF 4′ HIGH FENCE ON HARBISON AVENUE AND 10′ HIGH FENCE ON COTTAGE STREET (SIZE AND LOCATION AS SHOWN IN THE APPLICATION).

Without more information, nobody would approve that one.  Thanks to John Barnes, President of the Wissinoming Civic association for the help.

In order to keep the archives clean of error, I updated that original story.
