While being touted as a "net-zero" solar energy development, the proposed 64 Allandale development by Wonder Group will have a significant impact on the Woods. Earlier this week the Sierra Club wrote to the Boston Park's Commissioner, Christopher Cook, to support the department's list of concerns about the development and the need to balance wetland protections.
The BRA announced that they have scheduled a second public comment meeting for 64 Allandale Rd. on April 25th at the Roche Community Center in West Roxbury at 6:30pm. We assume the developer (Wonder Group, LLC) will present a revised plan although the BRA has not released any details as of April 12th. It is very important that the Friend of Allandale Woods be present and provide comment on the development since we suspect the BRA will move quickly to the Zoning Board of Appeal on this proposal to minimize public comment.
Information about the proposal is available in the prior post (fact sheet). The BRA official notice is here:
