Planning Board to vote on negative declaration for Euclid Ave. development

Update: City Planner Sondra Little confirmed that the declaration will be voted on at the next Planning Board meeting, scheduled for September 16. A full copy of the declaration, including the mitigation conditions, is available through the Planning Department or Wednesday's issue of The Record.

The Planning Board has posted notice in the classified section of Wednesday's issue of The Record that they have made a Conditional Negative Declaration as part of the State Environmental Quality Review process for a proposed development of 13 high-end homes off Euclid Avenue.

At the July meeting, the Board delayed preliminary approval of the project, saying they would make a final decision at the August meeting unless there were any unforeseen issues. Read more about that meeting here.

The August Planning Board results (.pdf) on the city website do not list the project, so it is not immediately clear whether the negative declaration will be approved at the September meeting. The legal notice says that there are a number of mitigation plans that have been imposed to remedy potential changes to air quality, flooding, drainage and other problems. A major concern of neighbors in the area has been the potential for the project to increase radon levels.

Check back for more details on the negative declaration and an update on where the project stands.
