  • Title:

    Amend Zoning By-Law to change three lots on Mason Terrace from the SC-7 District to the M-1.5 District

  • Brief Summary:

    The purpose and intent of the above article proposing a zoning map amendment for the properties at 99, 111 & 117 Mason Terrace are multi-faceted, with the primary goals being: 1) zoning consistency and 2) the ability to add additional housing to the neighborhood in Brookline. The primary petitioners desire to support the move of their son and new daughter-in-law to Brookline by allowing the couple to build a dwelling on their oversized lot. However, due to the current abnormal and restrictive zoning of their property, they have been told by the Town that adding another unit would not be possible without a zoning amendment to remedy the zoning abnormality in their area. This amendment would remedy that abnormality and would allow for additional building on those lots, consistent with the ones they border.
