Massive 40B 'village' proposed for Route 44 in Raynham? Can town say no?

RAYNHAM — A developer is proposing to build a 250-rental unit village-style affordable housing 40B apartment development along Route 44 in Raynham.

Under the state's 40B law at least 25% percent of the units would have to be rented below market rate to low to moderate income tenants — in exchange for being allowed to bypass many aspects of local zoning, such as density.

The property is located on the Raynham-Taunton line near the Leonard Commons subdivision and with the Raynham Riverwalkdevelopment across from it on the other side of Route 44.

The 41-acre property consists of 20 buildable acres zoned for residential, five buildable acres zoned for commercial, and the remainder unbuildable wetlands.

The illustration presented to the Board showed a variety of different residential styles for the "village-style" development, including townhouses, duplexes, three-story walkup buildings, and four-story multi-family buildings.

The intention of the developer, said Schomer, is to offer a “broad range of housing options” for seniors, single, multifamily, and low-income affordable across the 20 acres of residential property.

I fucking hate shit like this. First, the state needs to figure out something different than 40b to prevent this kind of garbage. This is huge swath of green, undeveloped land and it's all going to be paved over for some medium to lite density suburban bullshit. Build a fucking 30 story tower next to the future train station and you get the number of units. Save the woods. Ugh.
