Last week, the zoning board gave the developer a month to study traffic along Candia Road before the board considers a variance. Many members of the zoning board expressed skepticism.
On a daily basis, 18,000 cars traveled the road in 2013, according to data compiled by the Southern New Hamsphire Regional Planning Commission.
“There’ll be delays, there’ll be queues, but they would not be very significant,” said the engineer, Bob Duval.
Scrivanos wants to build five three-story buildings. Plans call for a pool, a clubhouse and 302 parking spaces.
“As a matter of right ... we could have at least 300 and as many as 400 bedrooms on that parcel. That’s not our goal,” he said.
Cronin said Scrivanos intends to respond to the questions raised by the zoning board, including traffic. But he said the planning board usually requires a traffic study.
