DERRY — A new single-story medical building at 11 Tsienneto Road will be on the agenda for the next Planning Board meeting on Sept. 5, according to Assistant Town Planner Elizabeth Robidoux.
The Conservation Commission approved the project at its July 23 meeting and Robidoux said the project has moved through the technical review process, which the town does to streamline approvals for new developments.
At a previous meeting, commission members expressed concerns about the building’s proximity to wetlands in the back of the parcel and whether there was enough space for snow storage.
Developers working with Derry Medical Center addressed those concerns by increasing parking spaces, which can be used for snow storage, and moving the nearly 18,000-square-foot building closer to the road.
Robidoux said there will need to be some waiver requests for things like the width of the street-side treeline.
“But there’s nothing that’s out of the ordinary,” she said.
The building will be used for ambulatory services, surgery and medical offices.
Nickerson Design will be representing the owners at the September meeting. The plan was prepared by Keach-Nordstrom Associates of Bedford.
Developers are subdividing a 6-acre parcel so the adjacent land can be set aside for future development that would later become a unified campus.
It would be located across the street from the existing Derry Medical Center campus at 14 Tsienneto Road.
