FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham City Council voted 8-3 Tuesday night, July 21, to expand the Zoning Board of Appeals from three to five members.
Voting for the expansion were Chair George P. King Jr. Christine Long (District 1), Cesar Stewart-Morales (D2), Adam Steiner (D3), Michael Cannon (D4), Robert Case (D5), Margareth Shepard (D7) and Tracey Bryant (D9).
This will require a second reading and again a 2/3rds vote before it is official. The next City Council meeting is August 4.
The current chair of the Zoning Board of Appeals Steve Meltzer, spoke against the expansion of the quasi-judicial board, appointed by the Mayor.
