    EBNHC
    The proposal before the Zoning Board of Appeal is to amend the zoning authorizations for the 20
    Maverick Square and 10 Gove Street East Boston Neighborhood Health Center (EBNHC) facilities to
    remove the references to the provision of ancillary parking at the following off-site lots:  75-115
    Bremen Street, 164 Orleans Street, and 147-163 Orleans Street.  We will also authorize existing parking
    spaces located at 21 Gove Street and 79 Paris Street for use ancillary to the EBNHC facilities.  The
    purpose of this amendment is to allow for the release of liens on the off-site lots.  EBNHC is not
    requesting authorization to develop the off-site lots; any future development on the off-site lots would
    require full public and community review through the City’s Article 80 process.
    198 & 200 Maverick
    The proposals are to change the occupancy of the three-family residential dwelling to a four-family residential
    dwelling.
