Current 40B Proposals

Concept Proposal - 104 Stony Brook LLC: 104 Boston Post Road


Berardi Properties and Layline Ventures LLC have approached the Town with an early concept for a friendly 40B development at 104 Boston Post Road. The early concepts preserve the historic Sibley House, but NO application with a specific proposal has been filed. Layline Ventures is seeking a friendly 40B and has been gathering input from the Planning Board, the Historical Commission, the School Committee, the Housing Partnership/Affordable Housing Trust and the Board of Selectmen. The Housing Partnership/Affordable Housing Trust has issued a conditional letter of support.

Unfriendly 40B Proposals


The following development proposals are not Town-supported but have been approved by the state utilizing MGL Chapter 40B provisions. Under Chapter 40B, a developer seeks Site Approval through the state by submitting an application to MassHousing. MassHousing then notifies the Town and gives 30 days for the Selectmen and Town Departments to provide comment on the proposal. After comments are received, a decision by MassHousing is given and, if approved, the developer then goes before the Town's Zoning Board of Appeals for a Comprehensive Permit. Further comments are allowed at the Zoning Board's public meeting.

The Zoning Board of Appeals process is a judicial process where the board members hear the proposal within a set time frame and then make a decision at the end. This is a prescribed process set by the state.
