The owner of the building that used to house MJ's Pizza goes before the Zoning Board of Appeals on Aug. 5 for permission to lease the space to a new pizza place.
Stash's Pizza has had signs up in the windows of 330 Belgrade Ave. since March, but has been unable to open due to a combination of a city code that requires new zoning approval for takeout every single time a place changes ownership, even if the restaurant will be basically identical, and a backlog at the Zoning Board of Appeals due to the zooming number of development proposals in other parts of the city.
The backlog had gotten so bad Mayor Walsh this week ordered the board to double its hearing hours starting Aug. 5 to try to get through all the applications.
Even if Stash's wins zoning permission on Aug. 5, its owners will have to wait for the city legal department to certify the approval - and will then have to schedule a separate hearing before the Boston Licensing Board.
