SNA votes not to oppose 76 Stonley Road project

The Stonybrook Neighborhood Association (SNA) voted during a Dec. 12 meeting not to oppose the 76 Stonley Road project at a Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) hearing, according to SNA member Sue Cibulsky.

The Boston Planning and Development Agency board during its Nov. 17 meeting approved the 76 Stonley Road project, but the proposal still needs to go before the ZBA.

Developers John Morrissey and Bryan Austin have a plan for a four-story, 30,720-square-foot building with 28 units and 23 below-grade parking spaces. The $9.5 million project is slated to have five affordable-housing units, which is one more than is required under the City policy.

Morrissey and Austin did not respond to a request for comment.

SNA and the developers recently worked through several issues the association had with the project. The developers agreed to include a path through the property connecting Stonley Road to Stedman Street and to use Boston Transportation Department-approved dark lighting fixtures.

The project is expected to go before the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council’s Zoning Committee on Jan. 4.

A spokesperson for the Inspectional Services Department, which oversees the ZBA, said the department is in the process of scheduling a hearing for the project.
