Public hearing on 40R proposal

Continue reading below

Selectmen will hold a public hearing on Tuesday at 7:45 p.m. on a 298-unit “smart growth” housing development proposed for the former Plimpton Press building off Lenox Street. John Englert, an executive vice president at Criterion Development Partners, developers of the 9-acre property, said 60 percent of the units will be one-bedroom and 40 percent two-bedroom. Under the 40R “smart growth” statute, the state encourages communities to create residential or mixed-use zoning districts, including a high percentage of affordable housing units to be located near transit stations. Unlike Chapter 40B proposed housing developments, town officials and residents must approve of 40R projects.
