Current 40B Proposals

40B Proposals without Town Support

The following development proposals are not Town-supported but have been approved by the state utilizing MGL Chapter 40B provisions. Under Chapter 40B, a developer seeks Site Approval through the state by submitting an application to MassHousing. MassHousing then notifies the Town and gives 30 days for the Selectmen and Town Departments to provide comment on the proposal. After comments are received, a decision by MassHousing is given and, if approved, the developer then goes before the Town's Zoning Board of Appeals for a Comprehensive Permit. Further comments are allowed at the Zoning Board's public meeting.

The Zoning Board of Appeals process is a judicial process where the board members hear the proposal within a set time frame and then make a decision at the end. This is a prescribed process set by the state.

To follow the comprehensive permit process, please subscribe to receive agenda notifications from the Zoning Board of Appeals. All meetings are open to the public.

Berardi Properties and Layline Ventures LLC is currently under review by the Zoning Board of Appeals for its comprehensive permit to construct 150 rental units on 2.1 acres of land. The developer received site approval from MassHousing in February. The project proposes a five-story building over a 2-story below-grade parking garage with 80 1-bedroom units, 55 2-bedroom units, and 15 3-bedroom units.  The existing historical Sibley House will be removed.
