ROCKLAND — The Rockland Planning Board’s review of a plan by a longtime city manufacturer of marine and architectural hardware for a new $1.5 million factory included stormwater concerns and whether a sidewalk should be built along Pleasant Street.

The Planning Board reviewed Oct. 19 the application by Lowe Hardware — no connection to the Lowe’s home improvement chain. The new manufacturing plant would be located in the Pleasant Street business park zone created by the City Council in January 2019.

Neighbor Dorothy Prescott of Pleasant Street spoke at the public comment session and voiced concern that stormwater from the development could send more water to her property. The Board also discussed whether a sidewalk should be required from Broadway to the property.

The Planning Board agreed to hold a site visit to 150 Pleasant St. Nov. 2, 2 p.m. before it will again review the plans at a meeting that evening.

The application states that the factory will be a 22,852-square-foot, one-story building located at 150 Pleasant St. The construction will take a year to complete.

Lowe Hardware is currently located at 5 Gordon Drive, in a building that is 10,560-square-feet.

In April 2019, Elliot Lowe of Lowe Hardware purchased the slightly more than five acres at 150 Pleasant St. from Everett and Gloria Mank.
