The Edgartown planning board cancelled its regular meeting Tuesday, rescheduling it to next Tuesday, August 12, at 5:30 pm. The board is considering an application for a special permit from developer Charles Hajjar, who wants to construct eight loft apartments in the Edgartown triangle business district. The rescheduled session will be the fifth meeting on the project since the hearing began July 1.
At the previous planning board meeting, the board closed the public hearing after testimony from many neighbors who opposed the construction. Board members began their debate by asking Mr. Hajjar and his attorney, Sean Murphy, questions from a three-page list of technical issues on setback waivers, parking lot redesign, and construction plans, among other topics.
