Current 40B Proposals

Concept Proposal - 104 Stony Brook LLC: 104 Boston Post Road

Berardi Properties and Layline Ventures LLC had approached the Town with an early concept for a friendly 40B development at 104 Boston Post Road and had spoken to the Planning Board, the Historical Commission, the School Committee, the Housing Partnership/Affordable Housing Trust and the Board of Selectmen. Mass Housing notified the Town in November of the filed application for a project eligibility letter (PEL) by 104 Stony Brook LLC and Weston had until Jan. 12th to submit comments.  
The project is seeking 154 rental units (39 affordable) on 2.1 acres of land. It proposes a five story building over a 2-story below-grade parking garage and will keep the existing historical Sibley House. The proposed density is 73.3 units per acre with 72 one-bedroom, 63 two-bedroom and 19 three-bedroom units. Comments from various Town Boards and Committees can be found below, along with the site application materials submitted to Mass Housing in November. On January 4th, the Board of Selectmen voted to withhold approval of the Stony Brook Weston PEL for reasons outlined in its letter below.

Unfriendly 40B Proposals

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.
