School officials want review of University Station impact

Westwood school officials have commissioned an independent look at the impact of a proposed 2.1 million-square-foot mixed-use development next to Interstate 95 and the MBTA’s Route 128 commuter-rail stop, after a study paid for by the developer said University Station will produce just 55 students from its 650 housing units.

With Westwood’s seven schools at, or over, maximum capacity, Superintendent John Antonucci and members of the town’s School Committee say they are skeptical of the developer’s figures, and are awaiting details of a mitigation plan to address any increased costs.
