The BRA board of directors meets Tuesday to decide, among other things, whether to allow construction of a 16-unit condo building at what is now the decaying Weld-American gas station at Weld and Centre streets.
Residents and City Councilor Matt O'Malley say they appreciate the chance to rid the neighborhood of an eyesore, but say the project, which will also include a ground-floor space for a professional office, is too large.
Residents who live behind the parcel in particular say that it will have more of an impact than it might seem at first because it sits on a rise above their homes. Following the last public meeting, the developers agreed to remove a roof deck from their plans.
The board's meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. in its ninth-floor hearing room in City Hall. Members of the public will not be allowed to testify.
