Your answer
# of units
We previously voted for a maximum of 166 units at the site - not the 322 the developer is proposing. The 166 number was our maximum, regardless of the mix of market & affordable units on site. How do you feel?
166 is too many
I support the community's maxium of 166 units.
I'm ok with more than 166.
Maximum # units on the site
Parking
The purpose of this question is to find out how many spaces per unit there should be - i.e. the ratio. The developer is currently proposing 322 units. Leaving aside how you feel about that 322 number, what ratio of parking spaces to units do you think there should be?
161 (0.5 per unit)
217 (developer's current proposal)
258 (0.8 per unit)
290 (0.9 per unit)
322 (1 per unit)
402 (1.25 per unit)
483 (1.5 per unit)
If there were hypothetically 322 units, there needs to be:
Affordable units
The developer is currently proposing to fund approximately 45 affordable ownership units off-site ("within walking distance" is their claim.) In prior community meetings we voted that affordable home ownership was most important. We were split on whether the affordable units should be on site - because many felt ownership was more important. We also agreed that "affordability" should be a mix of affordable (i.e. not all very poor residents nor all "mid-market" residents.) When you give your answers, please keep in mind what's most important to you.
Least important / Strongly disagree
Less important / Disagree
Neutral
Important / Agree
Most important / Strongly Agree
The affordable units should be on-site at 45 Townsend St.
The affordable units should be ownership units, not rentals
The percentage of affordable units should be higher than the developer's propsal (13%)
Heights
The current Radius Hospital buildings are - at their highest - 5 floors or about 45 feet. The Roxbury Zoning Code prescribes a 45 foot maximum for the site and 45 feet throughout most of Roxbury. If the Zoning were followed strictly, the higher up the hill, the less height allowed - i.e. the code does not allow putting a 45 foot building on the top of the hill. The developer is proposing a, "new 'single' structure with 5 building elements of various heights from 5 to 7 1/2 stories and 60 to 90 feet."
