Some city councilors do not like decks – in particular – the two city councilors from Southie – Ed Flynn and Michael Flaherty.
According to Universal Hub, on Tuesday, the Zoning Board of Appeal rejected a plan by the owner of a third-floor condo at 8 Peters St. to expand the size of his roof deck from 85 to roughly 150 square feet.
Citing loud parties, aides to both Flynn and Flaherty spoke out against the expanded roof decks.
The ZBA voted 4-3 in favor of the proposal, but it failed because state law requires at least five positive votes. Oh well.
This is not the first roof deck proposal rejected in the neighborhood. There was this one on Seventh Street. This one on L and another one on Dorchester St., to name a few.
