Steve Morrison, 25 Pittsfield Road (Map 17 Parcel 37). Mr. Morrison of Morrison Home Improvement came before the Board on August 17, 2016 to apply for a free standing sign.  He was granted a special permit. In the meantime, other vendors have signed agreements to occupy space within the building and Mr. Morrison would like to change the signage to include the names of the other vendors. He was inquiring as to whether this change would necessitate filing a new petition. The Board agreed that since the change would be significant, he must file again with the ZBA
