Development hearings tonight

Continue reading below

At its meeting tonight, the Planning Board will resume a public hearing into a special permit application by Nordblom, the owner of Northwest Park, to develop the Third Avenue section of the property as a shopping center off the Middlesex Turnpike. The proposed development would consist of 165,000 square feet of retail space, including restaurants and offices. Also tonight, the board will resume a hearing into a special permit application by Symes Associates to build 31 detached condominium units on 14.6 acres on Muller Road. Symes filed the application after Town Meeting last September approved a zoning change proposed by the developer made the entire parcel single-family residential. The company wants to build a cluster-style development using the town’s open space residential development bylaw. The board will resume a hearing into a zoning change sought by the Guttierez Co. that would enable the Burlington-based company to bring a Target store and a restaurant to 15.3 acres at the end of Wheeler Road, just south of routes 3 and 128. The property is often referred to as “the Canyon’’ because it was excavated in the 1950s as part of the planned extension of Route 3 into Boston, but the multilane highway ended up terminating in Burlington. - John Laidler
