Developer John Kelly has been vetting his 40B proposals for his Dale Street and Rte. 27 site with the neighbors, and he will present his latest iteration (copy attached below) to the Affordable Housing Trust next Tuesday – 36 units (12 sale and 24 rental), and nothing on the cemetery side of Rte. 27.
Per Mr. Kelly: “this design has the entrance to both the sale and rental element is from N. Meadows, with emergency ingress/egress from Joseph Pace Rd. Otherwise, the plan is quite similar.”
The town is currently in a 40B safe harbor, that precludes unfriendly 40B projects, through this spring, but has enough Subsidized Housing Inventory (SHI) units lined between the two approved and pending LIP’s to provide the town another year of safe harbor. The approved LIP’s are Bob Borrelli’s North Street 8 units next to his current 8 unit LIP and the other Borrelli’s 16 units rental LIP next to the Goddard School. If the Tilden Village expansion or the Lot 3 housing proceed, either one of those could provide two years of additional safe harbor, as the town needs to permit and build 21 SHI per year to stay in our safe harbor status.
Given the town’s safe harbor status, for Mr. Kelly’s proposed 40B to be able to proceed, it must be endorsed by the town.
