Developers under the name Pleasant Street LLC have initiated a process to bring something they feel is needed in Marblehead: an assisted living facility — slated for 265 Pleasant St. Neighbors don’t agree.
A large turnout of residents so overwhelmed the accommodations at the town senior center last month that the Zoning Board of Appeals postponed its hearing until this Monday, Oct. 26. On Monday, the ZBA will deliberate in the high school auditorium on a special permit request needed in order to move the Pleasant Street project forward.
Alicia Hart, a Pond Street resident and member of a group opposing the assisted living facility, said most Marblehead residents didn’t even know the project was in the works ahead of the original Sept. 21 meeting.
