Conservation Commission cites concerns about Woodland Meadows

Woodland Meadows is a proposed 4-story, 40-unit condo complex at 84 Turnpike Rd. It’s a 40B, meaning certain zoning laws can be relaxed in return for a portion of the development being affordable housing. But at last week’s Zoning Board of Appeals meeting, the Southborough Conservation Commission urged the ZBA not to waive permits related to stormwater runoff.

The condo development would abut preserved Sudbury Valley Trust and Southborough Conservation land, and would be near a stream that flows into the Sudbury Reservoir. In addition to stormwater runoff concerns, the Conservation Commission cited a lack of information about other environmental impacts including wetland delineation and water quality.

The ZBA decided to continue the public hearing at a later date. They will meet on October 22 to decide when the next hearing will be. More details in the Metrowest Daily News.
