March 2021 – Mugar Update #2
The Zoning Board of Appeals has issued a Draft Decision on the application for a Comprehensive Permit for Thorndike Place on the Mugar land in East Arlington. The 40-page decision appears to grant a permit for the project as presented at the February 16 hearing: a massive single building of 172 rental units fronting immediately on Dorothy Road. Many terms and conditions are itemized, but significant concerns remain unaddressed.
The hearing on Thursday, March 11 at 7:30 pm is critically important and may be the last opportunity for public input. Please plan to attend.
To register for the hearing via Zoom, visit the ZBA agenda page on the Town website. Links to all the site plans, reports and correspondence received about this project can be found on the ZBA Thorndike Place page.
