ZBA Draft Decision for March 11 Hearing 

March 2021 – Mugar Update #2
The Zoning Board of Appeals has issued a Draft Decision on the application for a Comprehensive Permit for Thorndike Place on the Mugar land in East Arlington. The 40-page decision appears to grant a permit for the project as presented at the February 16 hearing: a massive single building of 172 rental units fronting immediately on Dorothy Road.  Many terms and conditions are itemized, but significant concerns remain unaddressed.
The hearing on Thursday, March 11 at 7:30 pm is critically important and may be the last opportunity for public input. Please plan to attend.
To register for the hearing via Zoom, visit the ZBA agenda page on the Town website. Links to all the site plans, reports and correspondence received about this project can be found on the ZBA Thorndike Place page. Please review these informative documents and be sure to send your own comments and concerns about this proposed project to the Zoning Board at
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.
