The Auburn Planning Board last week unanimously approved an $8 million project for Kittyhawk Avenue and rezoning for a future business on Stevens Mill Road, according to Director of Planning and Permitting Eric Cousens.

The Kittyhawk project is a 66,715-square-foot warehouse, distribution facility and showroom for F.W. Webb Co., which specializes in plumbing, heating and refrigeration.

The location could employ as many as 38 people in the next five to 10 years, according to an application to the board.

There were “lots of compliments from the board on the F.W. Webb project design and shared access,” Cousens said.

Construction could start as soon as next month and wrap up next summer.

At 41 Stevens Mills Road, owner BJ Grondin asked the board for a zoning change from suburban residential to general business II with the aim of building a personal training studio on a spot that had housed a hair salon for 30-plus years, according to a memo by City Planner Megan Norwood.
