iBerkshires.com reports  the former Rascal’s Lounge is being eyed for a cigar lounge and humidor.
John Sheerin introduced himself to the Board of Health recently to present his plans for the North Summer Street building that he hopes will be a destination for cigar enthusiasts.
Sheerin said cigar smokers are often banished to basements or back porches and there are no local establishments where enthusiasts can enjoy their hobby.
Sheerin said the lounge would only allow access to those age 21 and older. He said they will not serve alcohol.
Sheerin said he plans to stock newspapers from around the country as well as televise various sporting events in the lounge.
In other business, Building Inspector Gerald Garner informed the board that he plans to increase the standards for securing condemned buildings to arson standards.
He said arson standards would mandate the used of 16-inch bolts, two-by-fours, and plywood that would shore up structures the town wants secured.
