Atlantic Management applies for earth moving permit

By Joan F. Simoneau, Community Reporter

Marlborough – An application for “prior earth moving” from the AvalonBay development to the front of 200 Forest Street was referred to the Urban Affairs Committee at the City Council meeting March 24. In the request to the council, it was stated that prior earth moving, intended to precede construction by several months, is consistent with the city’s zoning code.

Ward 6 City Councilor Edward Clancy said he visited the site, which he said “was quite hilly,” and he questioned the grading of it.  Atlantic Management President Joe Zink, who was in attendance, was invited to answer questions under a suspension of rules. He assured councilors that he meets regularly with city department heads “in a spirit of cooperation” and that they are aware of plans for that part of the site.

Approximately 25,000 cubic yards of excavated soil from the AvalonBay development will be stockpiled and spread and compacted in place in front of 200 Forest St. Documents describing the construction sequence, erosion controls measures, soil conditions, temporary and final grading were included with the application, according to a communication presented by Symmes, Maini & McKee Associates, representing Atlantic Management.

AvalonBay Communities is constructing an apartment complex at Forest Park, at the former Hewlett Packard site, including building 350 luxury apartments, houses, office space, restaurants, and a hotel.
