194 South Main Street, Map 29, Lot 193A-2 Aces LLC-Site Plan Approval-Construction of
addition & new parking area-Application #958
Chairperson Piselli announced that there would be only four members available tonight.
Attorney Jill Mann, representing the petitioners, agreed to present to the four member board.
Acting Clerk Jeff Garber read the legal notice and confirmed that the abutters had been notified.
Attorney Jill Mann presented the petition for construction of a 9,375 sq ft addition to an existing 14,200
sq ft building and a new parking area for up to 28 vehicles. The company MK Services moved from
Danvers to Middleton two years ago. The business has grown and they need to expand the building
solely for the manufacturing. There will be one overhead door and two pedestrian access points on the
side of the addition which will be masonry and metal with a flat roof and will blend with the existing
building. Only a small portion of the addition will be visible from the street. There will be no addition
of employees. Some site changes will include some clearing and relocation of the dumpster. The
petitioners will retain as many trees as possible. Because there will be added impervious surface,
drainage will be added at the rear of the property. Additional landscaping will also be added as shown
on the plans.
Acting Clerk Jeff Garber read correspondence from the ICDRC and the Planning Board (letters on file.)
Chairperson Piselli called for Board member comments or questions.
Mr. Garber felt that it was great that a Middleton business is expanding and was in favor of the project.
In response to a question from Mr. Fox about the adequacy of the driveway opening and the type of
manufacturing, Attorney Mann confirmed that the driveway was more than sufficient for the use, which
is a metal manufacturing facility.
Mr. Yebba commented that the petitioners were good business owners and was in favor of the
MOTION: Made by Nicholas Yebba that the Board make a finding that based on the information
