LWVN has twice supported the CPA application of Haywood House, a proposed 55-unit affordable senior living facility off Jackson Road in Nonantum. This project will now go before the Zoning Board of Appeals on June 6th, 7 pm, at the War Memorial at Newton City Hall.
Here is some information from the Newton Housing Authority on the project:
Haywood House is 55 units of elderly housing, all affordable located on a piece of land being taken from the NHA Jackson Gardens project on JFK Circle. The Newton Housing Authority will be seeking a comprehensive permit from the Zoning Board of Appeals, but as part of the permitting process the City Council has voted unanimously to amend the prior special permit for the Jackson Gardens development to allow for the removal of land for the construction of Haywood House. We are also pleased that the Urban Design Commission was very pleased with the substance of the plans at their meeting last week.
