The Clark Planning Board will meet to discuss the Sangiuliano Group's application to build 39 townhomes on the Miele's Greenhouse property for the sixth time tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Brewer Building cafeteria at 430 Westfield Avenue.
In the meantime, after doing business in town for more than a century, Miele's is having a final closeout sale and will shut its doors for good in the next few days, likely closing on March 4.
At the last planning board meeting on Feb. 2, the board ultimately decided to ask the applicant for a revised site plan that would incorporate the board's requests over the course of the meetings on the proposal. Several board members also motioned for the results of an environmental report the applicant completed.
"We’re thankful the board is starting to listen to our concerns and give them serious consideration," said Marianne Disporto, co-leader of Clark Neighbors, the main group opposed to the project, after the last meeting.
