Zoning: Braintree-Weymouth cooperation pays off

WEYMOUTH --- The decision by Weymouth and Braintree to collaborate on new zoning rules to revitalize Weymouth Landing is paying off as another developer has come forward with plans to develop multifamily housing. This time, it's Joe Gratta of Weymouth-based Atlantic Mechanical and Weymouth taxi company owner Metri Metri proposing to build 58 apartments at 143 and 165 Washington St. That makes four development proposals totalling 330 units since the zoning was changed to encourage mixed use, according to the Patriot Ledger.

Braintree: 1.5% claim puts hold on 40B hearing

BRAINTREE – Three days after city analysis estimated that 1.9 percent of its land is being used for affordable housing, the Zoning Board of Appeals voted to continue its hearing with a Ch. 40B developer while the city awaits for the state to confirm that Braintree has gone past the 1.5 percent threshold needed to have greater latitude over Ch. 40B proposals. A large crowd came to voice its displeasure with plans by the Holland Companies to build 78 units in Braintree Square but the ZBA pushed the first hearing date until May.

Ipswich: Longtime resident proposes housing

IPSWICH --- The owner of Bruni's Market - a lifelong town resident - has told the town that he will be applying for a Ch. 40B comprehensive permit so he can redevelop his property into 194 mixed-income apartments, a proposal selectmen say would be the largest development the town has ever seen. "Everyone always complaining about the fact there's no affordable housing, but every time someone comes forward with a plan, it creates a big stir," said John J. Bruni. "The history of Ipswich is it was a blue collar, working town. I grew up here and we prided ourselves on knowing your neighbor and that has all changed."
