The City Council’s Industrial and Community Development Committee at 7 p.m. Thursday will discuss a plan for improving traffic safety at Lynnfield Street’s intersection with Summit Street. The plan was developed by the city’s Engineering Department, working with the Police Department. The committee also will discuss a plan to enable residents of Farm Avenue to connect to the city’s sewerage system. The street is one of the few areas of Peabody still on septic systems, according to City Clerk Timothy Spanos. The full council, which meets at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, will hold a public hearing into a special permit application by Pinto Recycling to operate a solid-waste recycling and recovery business at 58 Pulaski St., Unit L3. The company currently operates the business on a portion of the Wayside Trailers property at 58 Pulaski St., according to Spanos. The council will hold other hearings on special permit applications by Robert Capone to operate a dog day care facility with a kennel and grooming service at 535 Lowell St., and by Auto Choice of Peabody to store vehicles at 6 Bourbon St. Auto Choice currently operates its business at 249 Andover St. (Route 114), but would like to use the Bourbon Street site for additional storage space.
