Bellingham planning officials are gearing up for another push for their proposed Pulaski Boulevard Overlay District, as the Oct. 10 Special Town Meeting approaches.
A similar proposal failed at the spring town meeting, but Planning Board Coordinator Mary Chaves said last week that she feels more confident this time around. The overlay district would allow mixed-use buildings with retail facing the street, and office and residential space filling out the buildings.
Opponents say that the added residential development will hurt, not help, Pulaski Boulevard by adding traffic and safety problems. The Oct. 10 town meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium at Bellingham High School.
