April 2021 – Mugar Update #2
The next ZBA hearing is scheduled on Tuesday, April 20, starting at 6:30 pm, to continue discussion of the Comprehensive Permit for Thorndike Place, located on the Mugar land in East Arlington.
At the previous meeting on April 8, the ZBA pushed back at the proposed scale and design of the project. It requested the Applicant consider revising its plans to restore the townhouses facing Dorothy Road as originally proposed, reduce the overall size of the project, and still protect the wetlands. Although a response had been promised by April 16th, none has yet been received by the ZBA.

Arlington Land Trust continues to advocate for the permanent protection of the Mugar parcel as conservation land. The site is subject to regular and significant flooding, and is a critical stormwater buffer for the surrounding and downstream neighborhoods of East Arlington.
