o Nick was unable to attend, Evan provided overview of their situation.
Looking for variance for residential property they own on Allston
that they want to use as offices for staff.
City advised them not likely to pass, so they now may be
considering a “Non-Compliance Use” variance, which would allow
them to specify exactly what they plan to do, and the variance
expires if the business moves/changes.

does not adhere to the terms?
