On June 20, 2016, the Planning Commission approved the request for a use permit and design review for a new 16 unit apartment building on the developed lot. The existing commercial structure would be demolished. The project included a request for a State density bonus waivers to permit a portion of the building to exceed the 2 story limit (3 proposed), to exceed the height limit (30 feet permitted, 32 feet proposed) and exceed the maximum floor area ratio (18,628 sq. ft. permitted, 22,929 sq. ft. proposed). Two units would be restricted for very low income households. This application was submitted on February 25, 2015.

Appeal to Town Council
The Planning Commission's decision to approve the application was appealed to the Town Council. The Town Council voted 3-1-1 to approve the appeal in part (to deny a condition that required a crosswalk to be installed) and upheld the remainder of the Planning Commission approval of the project. The hearing was on July 26, 2016.

Plan Redesign
The applicant is submitting revised plans to reduce the project size from 16 to 12 units. Meetings are scheduled for December and January 2016.
