The Arlington Land Trust, a nonprofit advocacy group protecting open space, wrote in an newsletter Nov. 15:
The most recent revised draft decision, dated Nov. 11, 2021, "reflects changes made at that session. Among other things, a condition has been added to the draft stating that a conservation restriction on the 12 conservation acres must be in place prior to project completion and occupancy. However, there is no express requirement that the conservation parcel be transferred to the town or an organization approved by the town, which ALT believes is the only viable approach."
