Members of the Zoning Board of Appeals recommended Tuesday that the Quincy City Council deny a request by Peters Heating and Air Conditioning to reduce a rear yard setback to three feet next to residential property.
Marty Peters requested that a 15-foot setback be waived next to a planned building in the 4520 Broadway complex. The Lexington Subdivision is located to the south of the subject property.
"Marty thought that was just wasted space, but the Zoning Board of Appeals feels like the city needs to maintain that visual separation between commercial and residential properties," said Chuck Bevelheimer, Quincy's director of planning and development.
Peters plans to erect a building that could be up to 50-by-65-feet.
The City Council will make a final determination on the request.
