Jason Edwards of J. Edwards and Associates presents a plan for 67 Enterprise Drive to the Planning and Zoning Commission on May 19.

MONROE, CT — The Planning and Zoning Commission recently approved two special permit applications for construction projects in industrial zones on Enterprise and Commerce drives.

BML Tool & Manufacturing Corporation will construct a 6,000-square-foot storage building and a 3,300-square-foot addition to its 23,000-square-foot headquarters at 67 Enterprise Drive.

The 3.61 acre site has some wetlands, so a permit was also obtained from the Inland Wetlands Commission.

The applicants were J. Edwards and Associates and BML Tool President Philip Battaglia.

The Planning and Zoning Commission also approved Yearling Real Estate Group LLC’s proposal to construct a 6,900-square-foot building for a contractor’s use and a 6,000-square-foot building for industrial/office use at 24 Commerce Drive.

Both buildings will have associated parking and loading on the 3.16 acre site.

The properties on Enterprise and Commerce drives will both be served by public water and a subsurface sanitary septic system.

The Planning and Zoning Commission determined that both applications are consistent with the Town Plan of Conservation and Development.

Proposed exterior lighting is dark-sky compliant and the facilities do not include components that are anticipated to generate impacts like glare, intensity or a flashing of light, fumes, smoke, dust, vibration or noise, according to the approvals.

The votes for each plan were unanimous with yes votes from Chairman Michael O’Reilly, Vice Chairman Bruno Maini, Leon Ambrosey, Secretary Ryan Condon and Robert Westlund at the commission’s meeting on May 19.
