HYANNIS – On Tuesday, the Old King’s Highway Regional Historic District Commission approved a proposal by Heritage Museums and Gardens to expand its parking area, however the project did receive scrutiny from some surrounding neighbors of the 100-acre property.

In addition to expanding the parking area to accommodate upwards of 180 vehicles, the project also calls for extensive landscaping, drainage work, as well as re-configuring entrances to improve traffic flow.

With approval, the commission will then file its decision with the town clerk in Sandwich, and attorney Jim Wilson, who works with the commission, believes the project’s detractors may very well file an appeal.

“Parties will have 20 days following the filing to appeal the district court to challenge the commission’s decision should they decide to pursue an appeal to court,” said Wilson.

Despite the approval, Heritage has not announced a time-frame for the project to be completed.
