Framingham, MA – On Friday, January 10, 2020, Framingham Mayor Yvonne M. Spicer released her Decision upon Findings allowing South Middlesex Realty Group, LLC (“SMRG”) to proceed with its applications to the Planning Board to construct up to 24 units of Active Adult Housing at 45 Nixon Road, Framingham provided that the applicant complies with all future performance and technical requirements that may be issued by the Planning Board, Board of Health and other agencies and authorities with permitting or oversight jurisdiction.
The Mayor’s Decision, issued after two well-attended public hearings on October 7, 2019, and December 20, 2019, requires that, in addition to seeking required approvals from City Boards, SMRG seek permission from the owners of 23 Dartmouth Drive, 25 Dartmouth Drive, 39 Nixon Road, 40 Nixon Road, 41 Nixon Road, 47 Nixon Road, and 50 Nixon Road to monitor their drinking water wells annually for as long as groundwater is used to supply SMRG’s proposed development.
SMRG request that the Mayor allow a well or septic system on the site was made pursuant to Framingham Zoning Bylaws [Active Adult Housing] Article V.I.4.d in effect prior to April 16, 2019. The Mayor determined, after reviewing all of the submissions at the hearing and listening to the presentations of the applicant and comments and concerns expressed by the residents, that this approval, again subject to compliance with all future performance and technical requirements that may be issued by the Planning Board, Board of Health and other agencies or authorities with permitting or oversight jurisdiction, is in the best interests of the residents of Framingham.
