Salem ZBA OK’s variance for physical therapy center
On Tuesday night, the Zoning Board of Adjustment granted a variance allowing Project Walk Boston to operate a training gym in the industrial zone.
“There were clients who were complete quadriplegics and now they were able to walk,” said Victoria Arlen of Project Walk Boston. “These clients had been told to accept life in a wheelchair. We were so overcome by the energy and miracles at Project Walk that we came home with our calling to bring Project Walk to New England.”
“The convenience of being so close to the Boston and Manchester airports was very important for our clients who come from all over the world to receive training,” said Arlen.
Because the current zoning ordinance requires a variance to operate a gym in an industrial zone, Arlen had to bring the request for a variance before the ZBA.
“This is activity based therapy for people with spinal cord injuries,” said Arlen. “The gym is for people with disabilities. The clients work with the trainers, who get them out of their wheelchairs and get them moving.”
