40B blues

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 19, 2007 12:22 PM


Board of Selectmen members said at a recent meeting that they are upset about a proposed 180-unit(cq) apartment complex. Developer Northland Investment Corp.(cq) of Newton wants to build the complex on the site of the former American Athletic Club(cq) on Route 16(cq).

The complex has been proposed under the state's Chapter 40B law, which allows a developer to avoid some local reviews so long as 25 percent of the proposed housing meets affordable guidelines.

Selectmen said the project could become an eyesore and complained that Milford bears the burden of 40B projects in the region.
