Southborough attracting mixed-income developments

Posted by Ralph Ranalli August 9, 2008 09:13 AM

Another Chapter 40B project wants to come to Southborough.

Local developer Bill Depietri recently told town officials that he intended to file papers to build 16 units on a 6.5 acre parcel on Oregon Road, Town Planner Vera Kolias said. Depietri intends to build under Chapter 40B, which allows him to circumvent local zoning rules as long as one-quarter of his condos are affordable according to state guidelines.

A handful of other Chapter 40B projects have been proposed recently in the town, including an apartment project off Crystal Pond Road and another, smaller condo complex off Route 9 near Woodland Road.
