The Zoning Board of Appeal today agreed to accept paperwork related to a parking lot in Sullivan Square that was filed three days late because the company that would use the lot is a multinational pharmaceutical company and, well, you can imagine how something like a parking-lot lease might have gone forgotten in times like these.
At issue is a proposal by the owners of a parking lot on Cambridge Street to convert the space from its former use as a parking lot for 100 Boston school buses to a parking lot for 431 cars belonging to employees at Sanofi, which is building out new space in East Cambridge.
The board approved the parking-lot change in December.
Sanofi was supposed to file paperwork related to the lease by March 2, but missed that deadline by three days, because as you can imagine, with what's going on in the world," company attorney Stephen Miller told the board, asking for legal forgiveness to file late.
Board Chairwoman moved to approve the request, "given the extenuating circumstances," but cautioned people at the hearing that this was an exception and that people should not get the wrong idea they can start routinely filing things late.
