The parcel is wasting away. There are no neighbors but the sheriff and the HOC. RT3 exit is right there. No reason to expect the steets of Billerica will get any big bump in congestion. Sounds OK to me. While they are at it put the beloved Home Depot there too. Maybe they can get the state to put in a special exit just for the auction lot

This has to be a worst case issue. No taxes and no jobs.

What Billerica needs is good high tech companies, not car auction dumps.

How can the Board of Appeals allow this.

Time for major changes in the BOA.

What can they be thinking of.

Dump all of the BOA members.

Time for real change for the better!!

A few places for the auction:

1. The mall parking lot! It will make the place look busy, possibly leading to increased business.

2. Iverson Ford. It's all set up for car sales. Nothing needed.

Is ANYONE shocked by this news, especially
as it relates to the ZBA. Was not the "redhead,"
who ran for Selectman, a long time member of the
ZBA. That tells us all we need to know.

The Zoning Board of Appeals is a Quasi-Judicial Board, it consists of five members and two alternate members appointed by the Board of Selectmen.
Hwo to you suggest they get removed?

They should start from scratch, maybe the new board would stop giving variances to everyone.

Gee, the Zoning Board really has a knack for creating chaos in Billerica.

Last year, they approved the big 40B on Rangeway Rd. And now they will put a massive auto auction right next door. What great planning! Very neighborly!

I was foolishly hoping the Town was going to stop the madness...

The Boad of Appeals needs to be changed, but with the same selectmen in place (thanks voters), it is doubtful any change will be made.

There are many out here who think the
same way. The more things change the more
they stay the same.

Based on the turnout, I think you meant to say "thanks NON-voters". It's a shame.

Billerica needs to keep an eye out for unauthorized car sales all over the place in town. When you start seeing cars in front of peoples houses and parked in businesses half vacant lots with lettering all over them good chance it is not licensed selling through a dealer friend and bought for them at the auction. It's not legal and looks trashy.
