Public hearing tomorrow about proposed 40B development off Oak Hill Road

The Woodland Meadows 40B development has been around for a while. It started as a 4-story, 43-unit complex between Woodland and Oak Hill Roads. But developer Robert Heavey ran into trouble with the Conservation Commission and the project was never approved.

On Wednesday evening, Heavey will appear before the Zoning Board of Appeals to present a revised plan for the development. The project has been scaled back to 16 units, all of which would have access off Oak Hill Road. The units would be 2- and 3-story townhouses, each 1800 square feet. Four would be designated as affordable to meet 40B requirements.

The units would be built on just over 2 acres of land at 9 and 11 Oak Hill Road (map). By Southborough standards, that makes it a fairly dense development. Because it’s a 40B project, zoning restrictions over things like lot size and frontage are relaxed in exchange for a certain percentage of affordable units.

Follow the links for a description of the project, selected plans and maps, as well as safety comments from the Fire Department.

If you want to hear more about the project or comment on it, plan on attending the Zoning Board of Appeals meeting tomorrow night at 7:30 pm at the Town House Hearing Room (on the second floor).

2 and 3 story townhouses? Does the Town code allow 3 story?

having another entrance/exit coming off of Oak Hill so near to Walgreens entrance/exit just doesn’t make any sense, an even bigger traffic nightmare.
