Sounding off on Bellingham development

BELLINGHAM

The 120-unit Lakeview Estates development will get a public hearing before the Zoning Board of Appeals tomorrow.

The development, which will include affordable housing under the state's Chapter 40B law, has been trimmed down to 60 duplex units, for a total of 120 homes, in an area near Chamberlain and Silver Lake roads and Geordan Avenue.

Developers have filed an Environmental Notification Form with the state because the proposed project will affect 27 acres of the 63-acre site, creating nearly 10 acres of new impervious surfaces by the time it is completed in 2010. The disclosure also notes the $31 million Fafard Development project will introduce 33,000 gallons of wastewater and over 800 new car trips in the area per day.

Residents may comment on the project by mail until Feb. 26 to state analyst Deirdre Buckley at the state's Environmental Policy Act Office, 100 Cambridge St., Boston, MA, 02114, or obtain more information by calling 617-626-1044.
