When the Davis Companies first presented preliminary plans to the Chelmsford Planning Board to convert the emergency-only fire-access road behind Monmouth St into a truck access road for their proposed massive warehouse, dozens of residents showed up, ready to voice their concerns. However, the Planning Board closed public comments, leaving many residents upset, until a later date when the Davis Companies could present a more hashed-out plan. That later date came on January 25, 2023.
At this meeting, the Davis Co. presented their updated plans for a 250,000-square-foot flex-warehouse building on Riverneck Rd, plus a proposal for a “truck access” road at the current emergency fire lane behind Monmouth St.
At this meeting, comments from the public were allowed. However, due to the sheer massiveness of the entire project, comments were limited to those only relating to the proposed access road portion, the newest part of the plan.
