The Upper Main street business district in Edgartown will see some new enterprise this year following approval by the town planning board of two business projects on Tuesday night.

The board approved a change of use permit that will allow the Edgartown Meat and Fish Market to open in Post Office Square, and also voted to allow a new construction project by the owners of Wave Lengths salon.

The market and deli owned John Ready and his son Sean will go into the space formerly occupied by Hollywood Video. The Readys will next go before the selectmen to apply for a beer and wine package sales license.

“[John and Sean] want to make a year-round commitment to the Island and the town of Edgartown,” attorney Sean Murphy told the planning board on Tuesday night. “They’re trying to make a significant investment in the town — we should be encouraging it, not discouraging it.”

The Ready family owns two other family markets in Shelbourne, Vt. Conditions that accompany the planning board approval include no deliveries before 7 a.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. on weekends, and trash receptacles must be located behind the building and be covered at all times. The Readys hope to have the market open by the beginning of May; the hours of operation will be 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The Wave Lengths building project has been scaled back considerably from a plan that was approved by the Martha’s Vineyard Commission late last year.

Originally owners Jayne Steide and Melissa Montession had planned to replace the salon with two new buildings: a three-story 4,198-square-foot mixed-use building and a three-story apartment building in the back of the property.

At a Feb. 1 hearing the planning board told the applicants their plan did not meet the needed parking requirements for the B-2 business district and was unlikely to be approved.

This week architect Chuck Sullivan and engineer Dough Hoehn presented a plan that eliminated the back building and made the front building 20 per cent larger.

“It’s a great reduction,” planning board member Fred Mascolo said.

Planning board member Robert Sparks asked if the building could be “dressed up” to fit into the character of Edgartown; he suggested adding shutters and landscaping.

The applicants must still return to the commission to have the landscaping plan approved.

In other business earlier in the meeting, the board voted to delay a decision on a Form A application by Dwight Arundale to subdivide his property at Sweetened Water Farm. Mr. Arundale is proposing to divide his 2.59 acres into two lots. The board will continue discussion on the proposal at its March 1 meeting.
