However, the othertwo selectmen did not approveof this idea, with ChairwomanBetsy Sullivan accusing Do-nato of having a “thinly veiledagenda.”The motion never came to avote, as Donato acknowledgedhe didn’t have the support of the other two selectmen.Donato made a motionMonday night to hire the com-pany Cape HR Partners, LLCof West Falmouth for $4,500to perform an evaluation of MacDonald.

At this point in the hearingprocess for a proposed expan-sion of Island Creek, there areno need for formalities.“I’ve got my tie loosened,”said Zoning Board of AppealsChairman Dennis Murphy atthe beginning of last Thurs-day’s meeting. “Let’s get somework done.”The proposed expansionof the 40B project known asIsland Creek North has under-gone more substantial changesas the town and the developer
get closer to a nal decision.
Out of three commercial build-ings originally proposed (for atotal of 28,000 square feet,)only one remains. Eight two-story, three bedroom town-house units will be built inplace of the commercial build-ings.“Because we’ve eliminat-ed 75 percent of the commer-cial space, we’ve created roomfor the townhouses,” said EdMarchant, a 40B consultantworking with the developer,Keith Properties.The design of the largeapartment buildings in the rearof the proposed developmenthas also changed. ArchitectAndrew Zaleski said the gutterline of the building has beenlowered, reducing its heightand making it look more likea three story than a four storybuilding. He said the frontalview of the buildings would bereduced by almost 25 percent.“Physically, it’s giving awhole different approach,”Zaleski said.However, ZBA memberswere still skeptical of theheight of the buildings settinga precedent, because four sto-ry buildings have traditionallynot been allowed in Duxbury.“It’s a big step for thistown, aesthetically,” said ZBAmember Michael Gill.There will also be threecovered garages on the prop-erty, for a total of 14 spaces.Marchant said the garages aremerely a sales incentive andwon’t have a major impact onIsland Creek’s bottom line.A drainage basin near theproperty line Island Creekshares with the First BaptistChurch was also redesigned,and a proposed “tot lot” wassplit into three separate play-grounds.Although Zoning Boardof Appeals members praisedthe new design, there are stillsome questions about the proj-ects, mostly revolving around
trafc.
At the last hearing, theboard and Island Creek’s traf-
c engineer Jeffrey Dirk dis
-
cussed a potential trafc light
somewhere near the intersec-tion of Tremont Street andRoute 3. At the time, therewas some question as to how
much of a trafc light project
the applicant would be willingto pay for.However, at the board’smost recent meeting on Thurs-day, Murphy read from a letterfrom a state agency that ap-peared to mandate that the de-veloper pay for the design of a
new trafc light.
“There’s no doubt that im-proves the situation,” Murphysaid of a new light.Marchant said he agreedthat the state letter appeared torequire the payment, but saidhe wanted to check with Dirk,who was not present at themeeting, before making a 100percent commitment.ZBA member Gene Oroszquestioned the assertion, madeat a previous meeting, that thesignal doesn’t have to be therefor Island Creek to start theproject.“Without the signal thereit’s only going to enhance theproblem,” he said. “From mypoint of view, I would like tosee the signal there to start off with.”Marchant said it wasn’t re-alistic to make getting the sig-nal a condition of the project’sapproval.“You should just tell ev-erybody in Duxbury theyshouldn’t use that road be-cause it’s not safe,” he said.“It’s still going to take a while.These things don’t happenovernight.”The public hearing isscheduled to continue on July9, however both sides agreethat they won’t be ready tomove forward at that point. Ameeting is tentatively sched-uled for Aug. 3 at the SeniorCenter.
