Oaktree, the North Cambridge developer, presented additional revisions to its plan during the last hearing, June 10. This plan included 124 rental units for senior independent living, with no assisted-living units, as proposed previously.
The ZBA requested the applicant provide additional information to address the public health and safety concerns raised by this type of specialized housing, in addition to other outstanding materials.
Town Counsel Doug Heim drafted a memorandum of understanding for the applicant, the town and other potential parties in developing a plan to improve, mitigate and transfer the undeveloped parcel of about 12.5 acres of land for conservation purposes.
Many questions remain to be addressed before any transfer can occur. There are other hearings scheduled:
