Busy slate for ZBA

MILFORD — The owner of the former McDonald’s Restaurant property on Elm Street wants to turn it into a gas station/convenience store and will go before the Zoning Board of Adjustment on Sept. 17.

The applicant, 168 Elm Street, LLC, will ask for a variance to permit the new use, which includes storage of liquid petroleum products in the groundwater protection district. McDonald’s closed the restaurant on the 1.2-acre property several years ago.

The ZBA will also review an application from Russell and Lara Lewis of 516 Osgood Road, who want a special exception to allow a home occupation for gunsmithing and the transfer of firearms.

Also on the agenda:

. Roger Plourde, owner of 73 Valhalla Drive, is applying for an equitable waiver of dimensional requirements for a carport constructed nine feet within the 30-foot front setback.

. Neil Stone, owner of 172 Badger Hill Drive, is asking for a special exception to allow an existing shed 12 feet within the required rear setback and 13 feet within the side setback.

. Michael and Thomas Ciardelli, owners of 469 Nashua St., are requesting a special exception to expand an existing non-conforming use with the construction of a 576 square foot addition.

. Alysha Johnson, owner of 144 Osgood Road, is requesting a special exception to allow constriction of a modular home with 320 square feet of encroachment on the wetlands buffer. The meeting starts at 7 p.m.
