A proposed new hanger at the Beverly Airport that would be built near a Danvers’ wetland will likely receive environmental approval on Wednesday night, according to Danvers officials.

While legislation exempts the municipal airport from zoning oversight, the Danvers Conservation Commission has to approve the project because it would be within 100 feet of a wetland they protect. 

Danvers planner Kristen Farr said the Danvers Conservation Commission will likely approve the hanger during its meeting on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Toomey Room at Town Hall.

“The only reason why we haven’t closed it out already is our engineer does a review of their proposed storm water system and they just had some adjustments to that regarding pipe size and things like that,” Farr said.  “So they should be all set for the Commission to vote on it.”

Almost half of the airport is on Danvers land. The 80-by-115-square-foot hanger would be built off Old Burley Street and would also include office space.

“We have a 35-foot no disturbance line and they are beyond that and they will be doing storm water management,” said Susan Fletcher, Danvers assistant director of planning and human services. “So it’s a fairly routine project.”
