WOBURN - With 10 public hearings on the agenda, the City Council figures to have a busy night when it meets on Tuesday (7 p.m.) at City Hall.

Votes are expected on several special permit petitions, including an application from Kohl's that will allow the retailer to remodel the entrance to its store on Washington Street in East Woburn. Last week, the council's Special Permits Committee endorsed the proposal, after the owner of the shopping plaza agreed to install a chain and lock box behind the building to prevent the overnight parking of commercial vehicles.

Rosematwo LLC is seeking a final vote on its proposal to construct a 10,000-square-foot addition to a warehouse at 7 State St., off Olympia Avenue, for the headquarters of the company that distributes Mama Rosie's pasta products.

A public hearing on a nuisance petition at 4 Pheasant Lane is expected to be resumed. At the crux of the debate is an apparent impasse between the Dept. of Public Works superintendent and the property owner over the installation of a water drainage system. The homeowner is seeking to demolish the existing structure and replace it with a new home.

Prospect Street property owner David Donovan is seeking a special permit to allow for the reconstruction of a non-conforming use to establish what will be a new 2-family dwelling, in Woburn Center.

Koffee Kup Bakery has filed an application for the overnight parking of commercial vehicles at 10 Micro Drive, near the Winchester line. The Vermont-based firm is looking to expand its operation into eastern Mass. Koffee Kup is currently leasing space on Mishawum Road, but is now eyeing a move to the 7.7-acre site near Holton Street and the Winchester line.

Comcast is seeking a special permit for the overnight parking of no more than 15 commercial vehicles at 9 Forbes Road, off Washington Street near the Stoneham line.

National Grid is seeking a grant of right-of-way to install approximately 85 feet of plastic gas main to supply a house at 3 Hobson Ave. in East Woburn.

Three hearings are expected to be continued until the council's meeting on Feb. 4. Lytron has two requests before the council, for accessory parking and a change to the zoning designation for its property off Dragon Court in East Woburn, near the Reading line. Linear Retail is also seeking a continuance for the hearing on its proposal for a fast food restaurant and a drive-through ATM at 299 Mishawum Road, across the street from the Woburn Mall.

In other business, officials from the School Dept. are expected to be on hand tomorrow night to answer questions about the items included in a list of proposed capital improvements submitted by Mayor Scott Galvin. There are about a dozen school-related items slated to cost $500,000 in the mayor's capital improvements package, out of a $2.6 million appropriation.
