A snapshot of town government news
1 - 133 Boston Post Road
Following the joint meeting of the Board of Selectmen and the Planning Board on May 23rd, the comprehensive permit hearings for Boston Properties through the Zoning Board of Appeals have been temporarily halted and are anticipated to restart on September 11th. The developer will be focusing its time on working with the Planning Board to negotiate certain site issues including total unit count and the size of the commercial development.
A lot of information on affordable housing and why this project is before the Town is available on the Town's website at www.weston.org/AffordableHousing which also includes links to the development plans, the state approved Housing Production Plan, and the 104 Boston Post Road 40B comprehensive permit documents (currently before the Zoning Board of Appeals).
2 - Volunteer Opportunities / Selectmen Reappointments
The Selectmen are currently seeking interested residents to serve on the Board of the Council on Aging and the Zoning Board of Appeals. Please visit www.weston.org/Volunteer to learn more.
At their next meeting on June 12th, the Selectmen will be reviewing the annual appointments to various committees. Each year, positions on the Selectmen-appointed boards and committees come up for reappointment in June. The Selectmen are currently soliciting questions, comments and other relevant feedback regarding the charge, procedures, and activities of these boards and committees. The Selectmen will also hear any informal expression of interest residents may have in serving on one of these boards or committees.
