Now that the BRA has approved the Wonder Group's 64 Allandale Road development proposal, our next hope of getting the developer to consider a more modest development (with lower impact on the Woods, neighbors and traffic), is to ask the Boston Zoning Board of Appeals to deny the developer's request. Wonder group has appealed for 53 specific zoning variances related to height, setbacks, frontage and density, since her lot is zoned for single family houses. The Zoning Board of Appeals is our best hope to pressure the developer to make a more appropriate proposal.
Please write a quick letter or card to:
Christine Araujo, Chair
Boston Zoning Board of Appeals
1010 Massachusetts Ave., 4th Floor
Boston, MA 02118
Or you can send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please reference the 64 Allandale Development proposal and make your position clear in the title so the ISD staff has an easier time counting the comments for and against granting a zoning variance; no need for a lengthy description as the staff just tallies the rough number - but the numbers do count!
More details are available here, if you need background information.
And thanks for helping the Woods!
