Before shoves hit the ground, however, many more approvals are needed.
After hours of testimony over three separate Planning Board meetings, members finally voted Wednesday night, granting master plan approval to Joe Zenga’s 40-unit Greenwich Boulevard development by a vote of 6-0. “I didn’t think you guys would be so thorough,” said Zenga after the vote. The longtime East Greenwich resident had remained largely silent over the course of the meetings, letting his team - led by lawyer David Igliozzi – do the talking. The original plan, unveiled in April 2011, called for 62 housing units. By the time it came before the Planning Board in March, the number had been reduced to 40, with one commercial building where the Sunnybrook Farms now stands. The development would extend from Main Street (Sunnybrook Farms) …

A few abutters voice concerns on traffic flow and snow removal, while members of the EG Housing Authority applaud the inclusion of 10 affordable housing units.
Joe Zenga’s plans to put 40 housing units on roughly 4.5 acres of land abutting American Legion Post 15 were methodically vetted last week during a four-hour-long Planning Board meeting at Town Hall. Testimony and public comment were halted at 11 p.m. May 23, with plans to take up the issue again – and vote – at a meeting on June 6. Zenga is looking for "master plan" approval to build 40 residential units, 10 of which would be deed-restricted as affordable. Also part of the plan is a commercial/retail building where the Sunnybrook Farms is now. Because a court reporter did not show up, the proceedings were taped. Lawyers from both sides agreed to abide by a transcript of the tape, which they could review. Engineers for the developer took …

Construction to be completed this year
Developer Jack Keigwin, who built Greenwich Medical Center, a medical complex just south of Division Street on the west side of South County Trail, is now putting up a 45,000-square-foot medical building on just over 4 acres of land right across the road on the east side of the highway. Keigwin told the Planning Board Wednesday night that he couldn’t give them the name of the building’s occupant at this time, but that it would be announced soon and would be a name everyone would recognize. Keigwin said the medical center would bring with it some 50 jobs and offer every medical service available. The tenant will have a 10-year lease with an option for another 20. After listening to an engineer, architect, landscape architect and highway …

Planning Board continues hearing on the 41-unit development beside the American Legion hall on Main Street after 3 1/2 hours of testimony.
After more than three hours of testimony before the Planning Board Wednesday night, a hearing on an application for 41 units on Greenwich Boulevard was continued to April 4, but not until concerns about roadways, parking and trash pickup were raised by Planning Board members. The development, on property owned by Joseph Zenga, would stretch from the Sunnybrook Farms on Main Street east toward the train tracks and southeast of the parking area for the American Legion hall. The plan, designed by architect Don Powers, calls for one commercial building on the Sunnybrook Farms site and 40 residential units, both freestanding and attached, behind it. Powers designed the Cottages on Greene development, which the Greenwich Boulevard resembles in …
