A resident advisory group appointed by the BPDA sits down with the developer who wants to turn a warehouse and industrial area south of the Sprague Street bridge into a 521-unit apartment complex aimed at the middle class.
The "impact advisory group" meets at 6 p.m. at St. Ann's School Building, 90 W Milton St. Although open to the public, the session is not a formal public hearing at which residents can give testimony - those have yet to be held. Instead, the group is supposed to hold detailed discussions on the project and make recommendations to the BPDA.
Developer Jordan Warshaw recently filed detailed plans for his 36-70 Sprague St. proposal, which he says would give the middle class a rare chance to move into new housing in Boston.
He's pledged to work with the city and state on Readville's already intractable traffic problems and says he is trying to convince the MBTA to increase the frequency of train stops at Readville and to lower its fares to that of the other stations on the Fairmount Line. Warshaw has also promised to work on making his side of Sprague Pond into a park open to the public.
