Woodfall Road proposals due Oct. 31


Proposals for the purchase and development of a town-owned property at 108 Woodfall Road are due to the Board of Selectmen’s office by noon Oct. 31. The vacant lot is zoned for single-family homes, and the town will consider proposals for between one and four buildings on the property, which is being sold as a single parcel. The town issued the request for proposals this summer, in its third attempt to sell the 5.25-acre lot. The town restricted the property to residential use after a group of residents protested plans to build a hospice there last year. Developers would not have to provide affordable housing on the site, following a Special Town Meeting vote in May to change the town’s inclusionary housing zoning bylaw. But developers would have to pay $45,000 to the adjacent Belmont Country Club for a barrier separating the golf course from the properties, and would have to extend Greensbrook Way to the lot’s boundary as well as build a road across the lot to serve the development. The lot is also subject to the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act. More information is available on the town’s website, www.belmont-ma.gov.
