Controversial Condo Project Goes Before Attleboro Council

Take a look at what's happening in Attleboro and Seekonk.

1. Among the items on tonight's Attleboro City Council agenda is a proposal to rezone a 1.5-acre property on Linden Street to allow the construction of a 21-unit condominium. The council is voting specifically on the rezoning, from industrial use to general residence-A, and not the actual project. 

Neighbors opposed to the project have created a website. It states five specific reasons for opposition:

  • This would more than double the number of people living on Linden Street.
  • The daily traffic would completely overwhelm the neighborhood.  
  • The entire complex would be unsightly, and in no way match the current look of the neighborhood.  
  • The noise level would increase dramatically.
  • Property values and the quality of life in the surrounding area would decrease dramatically. 

The Planning Board has recommended approval of the rezoning request. Support on the City Council was mixed at last week's committee meeting. Eight votes are needed for passage.

The meeting will begin at City Hall at 7 p.m.

4.  The Attleboro Arts Museum will host an art exhibit called Creative Symbols of the Season that will include 14 holiday art pieces. The event will begin at 10 a.m.

5. The National Weather Service's daytime forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high near 58. At night, it is expected to be mostly cloudy with a low near 48. Showers are possible (60 percent chance) after 4 a.m. on Wednesday.
