Hearing on group home’s permit continued


The Zoning Board of Appeals continued its hearing on building permit for a group home for disabled young adults until Aug. 14. A neighbor challenged the permit issued by the building commissioner to renovate and expand the single-family home on Mikayla Way, a cul-de-sac off Washington Street that backs up to Bird Middle School. Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Waltham, which operates four similar group residences in Norwood, said the group home’s occupants would be two staff members and nine “high-functioning people” with disabilities such as autism, Down syndrome, or cerebral palsy, who need help to live independently.
