Workforce housing development proposal returns to Londonderry Planning Board
The latest incarnation of the Wallace Farm project went before the board in May. Last month, property owner Tom Monahan and his attorney, Thomas Jay Leonard, requested a consolidation of lots at 48 and 62 Perkins Road, as well as several site waivers.
Located on the property, the historic Wallace farmhouse was offered to the town earlier this year, but the heritage commission declined the offer because of the structure’s poor condition.
Planning Board Chairman Art Rugg said he was pleased to learn the clubhouse would be built to resemble the farmhouse.
Monahan said the complex would be built with a single curb cut onto Perkins Road, rather than individual driveways, which town officials had feared would result in traffic safety concerns.
Twenty—five units will be rented at market rate, Leonard said, noting those apartments would appear identical to the “workforce” apartments.
Project plans also entail a possible redesign of the Perkins Road/Route 28 intersection that would prevent left turns from Perkins onto Route 28.
Plans for a separate workforce housing project on Mammoth Road are currently in conceptual stages.
The Perkins Road site was among several site’s listed as potential project locations, based on its location and accessibility to public utilities.
