Two Important Meetings on June 10

June 2021 – News Briefs

ZBA/Mugar Hearing on New Senior Housing Plan

The next ZBA hearing is scheduled on Thursday, June 10, starting at 7:30 pm, to continue discussion of the Comprehensive Permit for Thorndike Place, located on the Mugar land in East Arlington. At the previous hearing on May 13, the Applicant presented a revised design that includes 12 townhouses as ownership units facing Dorothy Road and changes the main building to include 126 rental units for independent senior living and assisted living. This dramatic change in use reduced the size of the building and the number of parking spaces, among other proposed revisions, although many critical concerns still remain unaddressed.
Check the ZBA agenda page  for the final 6/10/21 agenda and additional plans, documents or correspondence received by that date.

Please 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.
