A Hudson resident who wanted to build an expansive addition that included an indoor basketball court and library onto his modest ranch has agreed to withdraw his proposal after the Zoning Board of Appeals sided with the town's building commissioner and agreed the construction would turn the ranch into a two-family home.
Building Commissioner Jeffrey Wood ruled that Bruce E. LaFreniere, Jr.'s plans for the house at 85 Fort Meadow Drive would turn it into a multiple family home, which is not allowed in that neighborhood under the town's bylaws, according to Town Planner Jennifer Burke.
LaFreniere agreed to withdraw his proposal after an administrative hearing with the ZBA last week and will submit new plans later, Burke said. LaFreniere and his Marlborough attorney,Christopher Flood, could not be reached for comment.
