MWDN: Planning Board approves Stone Brook Development against neighbor protests

by beth on October 24, 2013

According to The Metrowest Daily News, the Planning Board voted on Stone Brook development’s site plans Monday night. The Board approved the plans for Capital Group Properties’ 15 condo unit senior housing development.

MWDN reports that resident  have accused the town boards of not applying bylaws strictly enough in the case of this development.

Some neighbors are still appealing the town’s decision to allow the Zoning Board to issue a special permit.  (Click here to read the original post on the legal appeal.)

And one neighbor is still objecting to the Planning Board’s leniency towards Capital Group Properties plans for cutting trees:

The Planning Board Monday imposed several conditions aimed at reducing impact of construction on neighbor Lisa Braccio.

It did not decide to reduce the number of condos allowed, as had been requested by neighbor Meme and Kevin Luttrell. . .

[Meme] Luttrell said Depietri’s plan calls for virtually all the trees other than those near wetlands to be cut down. She said the board should have required Depietri to keep more trees on the site either by reducing the numer of condos or changing the site layout.

“If (adhering to the bylaw) is the major objective of the board, I think they failed,” she said.
