Hearing postponed on Boardman apartment complex



Published: Tue, January 15, 2013 @ 10:48 p.m.

BOARDMAN — Residents concerned about a new apartment complex on Brandon Avenue will have to wait to learn if the project will move forward.

The township board of zoning appeals postponed its decision tonight at the request of developer Rick Clayton who owns the property where the apartments are slated to be built.

About 200 people, mostly residents who live on or near Brandon Avenue, crowded into the township hall meeting room.

“I think it’s ridiculous,” said resident John Smrek of the postponement. “We’re worried about safety issues, the look of the neighborhood and wondering what clientele are we going to get in there.”

Dougherty Construction wants to build eight six-plex apartment buildings at the end of Brandon Avenue, which is off Sheridan Road. At the hearing, the zoning appeals board questioned the proposed method to provide water access for fire departments and the road plans, which then led to Clayton seeking the postponement.

Clayton said a 7-foot-deep pond will be dug on the property to serve as a detention pond and water source for firefighters, providing 1,500 gallons-per-minute water pressure for more than the two hours required by state law. The pond will connect to two fire hydrants.

How many gallons per minute will the pond provide when it's frozen? What effect will adding 48 housing units have on the sewer lines?

And, that being Youngstown School district, who's going to move in?

Suggest removal:
