Skating rink considered for self-storage business


A public hearing has been scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Dec. 2, to consider a request for a special use permit to turn a roller skating rink at Northland Plaza into a self-storage business.

Randall B. Soggs, owner of the plaza at 144 Eastern Blvd., wants to close Showtime Skating and renovate the 22,000-square-foot indoor skating rink into storage units.

That night, the Watertown City Council will be asked to grant the special-use permit, which is needed because the city’s commercial district does not include storage-unit businesses. Showtime Skating has been open there for about four years.

The city’s Planning Board recommended the permit earlier this month.

The public hearing will be held in the third-floor council chambers at City Hall, 245 Washington St.
