The Board of Selectmen and Planning Board will hold a joint meeting on Monday, November 20 at approximately 7pm (meeting starts at 6:30pm) at Town Hall to begin the discussion of the draft letter to MassHousing on the proposed 55-unit 40B project (a.k.a., Wellesley Park) seeking Site Eligibility at 148 Weston Road. Public comments will be welcomed.

135 Great Plain Ave.
The town has sent a letter to MassHousing regarding the proposed 40B development at 135 Great Plain Ave. The town says that the architectural design of the 44-unit Great Plain project fits in, but has a list of questions regarding traffic impact, public safety (pedestrians/cyclists) and stormwater management.

MassHousing, one of the agencies that 40B developers run their plans by to move forward on affordable housing projects, has asked the developer for these projects to revise its plans for a pair of proposals that would bookend one Wellesley neighborhood near Sprague Elementary School. MassHousing says this action does not constitute a rejection of site eligibility.
