    Ames Plaza Update

    The Applicant has submitted a revised concept site plan and has committed to no “overnight parking”, no one sleeping in vehicles. It was determined that the revised plan complies with the Town of Erwin Zoning. The next steps are that the applicant must complete a traffic study and submit a full preliminary engineering package to the Planning Board. The Planning Board schedule and agendas are posted on the Town’s website and Facebook page. A deadline for completing the demolition of the former Ames building has been established.
