NASHUA – Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua will redraw the boundary between the two lots at the health center’s old location at 589 and 591 West Hollis St., with the goal of selling each lot individually.

The health center needed a variance to allow the line relocation, since the lot is zoned as both residential and industrial.

Gerald Prunier, an attorney representing Dartmouth-Hitchcock, said even after the sale, each lot would have the necessary parking for its size.

The Zoning Board of Adjustment found that since the lot has been used as a business for a significant amount of time, the smaller open space, which is acceptable for business use, would suffice.

“It’s been used many years as a business, but they’re
trying to balance the two lots – one large and one small. … It’s kind of a benign property line relocation,” said Jack Currier, of the ZBA.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock moved to 2300 Southwood Drive, off Exit 8 of the F.E. Everett Turnpike, in January 2012.

In other business, David Rhodes, of 11-13 Linden St., came before the board with a proposal to convert his two-family building into a three-family building.

“It’s a two-family, but I want to make the attic like a condo,” Rhodes said, adding later that he intends to move upstairs into the condo and rent out the unit below.

Rhodes, who is the owner/occupant and landlord, said the property has space for at least five cars, including the garage.

The board voted unanimously in favor of the variance.

Gerry Reppucci, Zoning Board chairman, praised Rhodes’ plan for remaining an occupant.

“Owner-occupied properties are always the best bet in any neighborhood,” he said.

The next Zoning Board meeting will be March 25.
