Annette Kaplan started this petition to City of Boston, Zoning Board of Appeals

We are residents in the greater Oak Square neighborhood and submit this petition to register our fervent opposition to Sun Property Group’s proposed development that will destroy the character of our extraordinary Brighton neighborhood. The proposed development of 692 Washington Street converts a historic single-family property into an extremely dense multi-unit property totalling eight residential units. This proposed development requires a number of variances from the Zoning Board. Given that there is already significant overdevelopment in this area, insufficient street parking for existing owners, residents, and guests, higher vacancy rates than Boston and Brighton have ever experienced, and no financial hardship, there is absolutely no reason for the City or Zoning Board to approve any development on this single family property beyond what is already allowed by right. This proposed development will have severe negative impacts on the neighborhood’s density, traffic, water drainage and overall quality of life to name a few. Many of us have lived in this family neighborhood for decades, even generations. Our expectation is for our local elected officials and other government representatives to actively oppose this development  and other developments being considered on Washington Street/Tremont St in Oak Square. These developments will undoubtedly  damage our cherished neighborhood and offer no enhancements. We have elected you to your trusted positions, and we call for your strong help to preserve this neighborhood from the siege by developers who have no concern for the character of the neighborhood and will lack any connection to the neighborhood following the developments. Thank you.
