Louis C. Talarico, a Lewiston fire lieutenant who also operates Luiggi’s Pizzeria at 63 Sabattus St., confirmed last night a report that he has purchased two buildings adjoining the eating establishment.

Purchased were a building at 65 Sabattus St., which Talarico uses for a bakery and which has two apartments on the second floor, and the building housing the Blue Goose Grill. The property was bought from Harry Persky of Lewiston, who operates a market farther up the street. Talarico reported no changes are planned in existing tenements.

A Crowley Road resident wants a 35 acre parcel of land rezoned from residential to agricultural so he can raise sheep on an old farm.

The Lewiston Planning Board will hold a public hearing Tuesday on a rezoning petition submitted by Raymond Bussiere to extend the agricultural zone to a portion of land on Crowley Road now zoned residential 8 (apartment zone).

If approved, the matter is referred back to the City Council. The Council, if it approves, must send the proposed zoning change to its Ordinance Committee for review and a second public hearing.

If the Ordinance Committee acts favorably, the City Council then holds two public readings on the proposed change, which may be adopted following both readings.
