Town of Arlington logoThe town's Conservation Commission met via Zoom for more than three hours starting at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 20. As it has been for the past several months, the hearing for the housing project Thorndike Place, intended to be built on the Mugar property in far East Arlington, was again continued, this time to the next commission meeting, July 11. One reason given was that third-party reviewer GZA was not present.

 Martha Lyon Landscape Architecture presented draft findings including three possible options for what to do with the commission's 10.2-acre wooded property at Mount Gilboa; a final report is due July 5.

Commissioners closed out a certificate of compliance for the Medford Boat Club on the Mystic Lakes and began a hearing for a notice of intent. The applicant was told to come back with more information about aquatic management including options for mechanical and herbicide treatment for target species; that hearing was continued to July 11.

A hearing for 18 Hamilton Road was opened but immediately continued to July 11 given that the applicant was not present.  And the owners of 49 Spy Pond Lane were told to refile for a notice of intent concerning required mitigations for a deck-construction project at that location.
