Please contact the Zoning Board of Appeal (ZBA) and your elected officials to show your SUPPORT for badly-needed new housing at 59-63 Belgrade Avenue.
This proposal will replace the Folsom Funeral Home, which is closing, and will provide:
- 31 new apartments, a mix of one and two-bedroom units
- 6 income-restricted apartments
- Ample on-site bicycle storage
- New transit-oriented housing directly next to the commuter rail and Roslindale Square
Please send a polite, brief support email in your own words to the following individuals with the subject line: “Please Support 59-63 Belgrade Avenue”
- email@example.com (bcc for WalkUP tracking purposes)
This is an important infill proposal that will provide needed new transit-oriented housing, displace no one from the site, and enhance the entrance to Roslindale Square on Belgrade Ave. WalkUP Roslindale previously submitted a comment letter in support of the project to the BPDA.
Please submit your support emails before Friday, August 19th! The ZBA hearing will be held virtually on Tuesday, August 23rd.
One thought to “Please help support housing at 59-63 Belgrade Avenue”
The BPDA approval memo (https://bpda.app.box.com/s/ki3gjlqarac74yckygwazpcjov8zzv0u) states the proposal includes 6 income-restricted units (19%), an increase from 4 in the original proposal. Supporters may wish to highlight that the developer has committed to more income-restricted units than the required 13%.
Many thanks for your important work in organizing support for more housing in our neighborhood!
