The Portland Zoning Board of Appeals on June 6 unanimously reaffirmed an earlier
The Portland Zoning Board of Appeals on June 6 unanimously reaffirmed an earlier ruling that found that the Project for Supported Living (PSL) at 116 Free Street conformed to the downtown pedestrian zone. Peter Quesada, president of the company that manages the Baxter Building, persuaded the board of appeals to rehear the case because he had not been informed of the initial hearing. Ted Bernard of Portland's Downtown District said the increase of clustering of social services in the area was in conflict with the goals of the city. Melanie Hall, a client who uses PSL's services, said a reading class she has been taking at PSL has changed her life for the better.
