Future residents of the project on the site a year ago
Berlin has given the go-ahead to the controversial Sawyer Hill cohousing development.
The complex will consist of two distinct neighborhoods, Mosaic Commons and Camelot Cohousing. Each will have 34 units and its own common areas.
The development will sit on 65 acres, 55 of which once belonged to Bigelow Nurseries.
The Zoning Board of Appeals approved the project by a 3-2 vote last night.
The complex -- proposed under the state’s Chapter 40B affordable housing law -- will add 17 below-market units to the town’s existing 43, with 12 going to Berlin residents or employees.
