The Planning Board is holding a public hearing March 5 in order to amend the sign bylaws. Temporary signs, special event signs and signs relating to real estate are the items up for discussion at that time.? Prior to the Planning Board's public hearing, the Board of Selectmen will further discuss the sign bylaw amendments at the Feb. 25 meeting.
In other business, the selectmen unanimously granted an application for a Common Victualler and Entertainment License for Hillside Restaurant, located at 73 Main St.
The restaurant will offer dine-in, takeout and catering and serve salads, meats, fish, seafood and pasta.
John Voyiatzis, the owner of Hillside Restaurant, was present at the meeting.
“We do not intend to seek an alcohol license,” he said, “but if it's available, we would like to have beer and wine, not heavy alcohol. We’re not in business to make money out of that.”
The entertainment license will be used for the television inside of the restaurant, he said.
The restaurant will seat between 30 and 40 people and will be open seven days per week, opening at 11 a.m. and closing at 10 p.m. Hillside Restaurant will have its grand opening in the next couple months.
Voyiatzis said he has been looking for a space for his restaurant in Northborough for the past 20 years.
