Take the EMNA Survey about East Milton development:
In August 2017, Ned Corcoran, attorney for Falconi Companies, met with the East Milton Neighborhood Association Board to present a mixed use, rental development at Adams Court, Bassett Street and Franklin Street.
Since that time there were 3 large community meetings (each with approximately 200 attendees) and a joint meeting of the Board of Selectmen and Planning Board (with approximately 100 attendees).
In addition, there has been a smaller group of neighborhood volunteers working to advance a proposal that would meet the needs of the community and respect the concerns of you and other neighbors. This smaller group of volunteers has always operated with the intention of returning to the neighbors with updates.
After 8 months of engagement with Ned Corcoran and many smaller working group meetings, the group has come to an impasse. The proposal has changed since the first meeting but concerns about scale, scope, density as well as a myriad of other issues (parking, traffic, impact on schools, etc.) still exist.
The current proposal includes:
- 50 rental units (63 bedrooms)
- 13 units at 2 bedrooms: 848sq. ft. to 858sq. ft. with one at 966sq. ft.
- 37 One Bedroom Units: 598sq. ft to 667sq. ft. with one at 714 sq. ft.
- 4 stories
- 7,787 sq. ft. office space; 8,885 sq. ft. retail, and 1,773 sq. ft. amenities
- 113 parking spaces (41 outside and 72 garage spaces)
Ned Corcoran has indicated the Falconis have reached a point where they need to develop plans to advance a rezoning of the property. He says they need to know whether the neighborhood supports rezoning for a project with the density that has been arrived at to date. He has stated this is the minimum density that the development needs to achieve and we need to either move forward with this project or move on in another direction.
