The agenda is as follows:

  1. Open Meeting/Introductions
  2. To hear and act upon the application of Michele Zalot, for a Zoning By-Law Special Permit under Sec. 3.3.3 of the Otis Zoning by-laws to demolish and reconstruct a single-family home on a dimensionally nonconforming lot. The proposed construction requires a dimensional Special Permit to address changes to the house location and size. The new construction will have a reduced footprint and would be less encroaching. A portion of the current structure is on land owned by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Demolition and reconstruction will remove this encroachment and provide a rear setback of one foot- two inches (1’2”).


  1. To hear and act upon the application of Pease Realty Trust, for a Zoning By-Law Special Permit under Sec. 3.3.3 of the Otis Zoning by-laws to demolish the one existing bedroom and expand the structures footprint for a family room with bedroom upstairs. The new construction will have an increased encroachment along the front setback and thus be less conforming.


  1. Approve minutes from previous meeting
  2. Associate Member Nominations
  3. Selection of Chairperson for the period July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023
  4. Old Business and New Business/ Items unanticipated by the chair
