Current Status of LexHAB Projects
11 Fairview Avenue
The regulatory agreement between LexHAB and the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) that will govern the use of the site must have all signatures and be file with the Registry of Deeds before a building permit can be issued.
We are aiming for March 6th as the date it will be filed.
The construction of the Fairview project will be by a team consisting of Minuteman Tech students and Transformation, inc. and overseen by LexHAB. Transformation is in the forefront of Zero-Energy residential construction. They will utilize Minuteman Tech students wherever it makes sense. The project will also have videos produced to further training for other students.
The property on the former Busa farm has received approval by town meeting for the use of CPA funds to complete the project.
LexHAB is utilizing the expertise of Metrowest developers to complete the approval process required by DHCD that will allow the site to be considered affordable by state standards and included in the state’s Subsidized Housing Inventory. The process is in the early stages.
Nothing has been done with respect to the panning for affordable housing on this site as of this date.
