The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is set to hear a case on Tuesday, Sept.11, brought by Mary Bliss, Andrew Gallucci, Willis O’Brien and John Sievers alleging that the firm is violating the town’s zoning bylaws. The four abutters asked the building inspector to shut the spring water business down. But in a letter to the neighbors, John Roberto, Lynnfield’s building inspector, declined to close the business noting he is not convinced the company is operating illegally. As a result, the neighbors appealed to the ZBA. They argue that whether Boston Clear Water was ever lawfully allowed to operate as a lawful pre-existing, nonconforming use prior to the adoption of zoning, those uses were abandoned for two years, and as a result it is no longer protected.
