Lots more Wellesley 40B talk expected this week

Fresh off of last week’s Wellesley School Committee meeting during which town assistant executive director Meghan Jop dove deep into the complicated territory of how 40B and other housing development could affect elementary school enrollment (see Wellesley Public Media video starting at about the 48-minute mark), lots more 40B discussion is slated for town meetings this week.

*On Monday night, the Board of Selectman at town hall plans to discuss the latest on the proposed Delanson Circle 40B project (a site eligibility modified plan review). The original plan called for 95 units, but that number been shaved to 90. The meeting starts at 7pm.

*The Planning Board also meets Monday at town hall (and there is mention of possibly meeting jointly with the Board of Selectmen), and among its agenda items are the Delanson Circle proposal, as well as the 135 Great Plain Ave. and 148 Weston Road 40B site eligibility apps. The Board also plans to hit on a potential 40B proposal at 136 Worcester St. (possibly 44 units), and discuss general efforts to address affordable and diverse housing in town. The meeting starts at 6:30pm.

*Finally, we’re really hoping that some of the 40B developers will boldly put together a Wellesley Spelling Bee team called the 40Bees.
