Fairhaven neighbors lose a small battle on height restrictions for the moment.

I’m sure there are a lot of you disappointed folks in the Fairhaven neighborhood today, as a city planning director Tim Stewart decided against their proposal for height limitations on buildings in the historic district. The debate centers around the future development of the proposed Fairhaven Harbor near Padden Creek. The Fairhaven neighbors group thinks that Fairhaven Harbor’s 10 story building would be detrimental to the neighborhood character, last year they applied to limit building heights to 45 feet in Central Fairhaven and 35 feet in the surrounding areas. Stewart is asking residents, merchants, and property owners who all seem to have their own agenda to come together and agree on a height limit proposal before they can reapply for a code change to go into effect.
