BRUNSWICK — The Planning Board on Tuesday approved a sketch plan for two residential apartment units between Noble Street and Station Avenue.
The board also unanimously voted to authorize final plans for Mid Coast Hospital to add 115 new spaces and three new lots to its campus on Medical Drive. Board Chairman Charles Frizzle recused himself from the discussion because he previously served on the hospital board and now sits on several of its committees.
Representatives of JHR Development presented initial plans to build two, three-story apartment units on the 0.43-acre parcel at 16 Noble St. Going by the name Noble Street Apartments, each building will contain 12 units and a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments; the two buildings will be connected by a one-story multi-use mechanical room.
The Planning Board recommended to Curt Neufeld of JHR Development that plans should consider adding more robust landscaping to break up what Frizzle called “the sea of parking” in the near vicinity.
