Washington School Update

by Osman Parvez

The Washington School Cohousing Project was granted conditional approval from the Planning Board on Friday. ~300 people showed up for the meeting which lasted 8 hours.

From The Daily Camera:
The decision to approve the plan with a series of conditions — including a requirement that the developer provide more open space — may not be the final one. The City Council could decide to review, and possibly revise or even overturn, the Planning Board's decision.

and
Among the most significant [conditions] is the development will be required to provide more open space to the neighborhood. Planning Board members gave Leach two options to make that happen: He can either remove a library annex that sits on the south side of the school and turn it into open space, or he can try to find a buyer for as many as three parcels on 13th Street otherwise planned to hold single-family homes and turn those lots into open space.


Next step? City Council on September 18 and October 2.
