DEVENS — Less than a month after the pharmaceutical giant Bristol-Myers and Squibb announced that it’s coming to Devens, the company has already presented a preliminary timeline for permitting this fall.
That information was presented to the Devens Enterprise Commission on June 27 by Land Use Administrator Peter Lowitt, who said the company is planning to file applications for permits in September, which would bring it before the commission in October.
The company would likely have representatives visit in August to begin preliminary discussions with the commission, said Lowitt.
The company figures to have multi-phased plans for the 100-plus-acre campus between Patton and Givry roads that it has declared its intent to purchase, he said. At this point that figures to include three major manufacturing facilities, the first of which could be in the works by this fall.
“It’s a very exciting long-term project,” he said. — Nathan Lamb
