The Master Plan Implementation Committee (MPIC) continued its quest on April 9 to find a zoning solution that could generate more, better development for Milton Village and gain support from the neighborhood.

MPIC members and about 10 neighbors heard from a developer about what he thinks it would take to make a project in the area near Dorchester Lower Mills financially viable, and MPIC Chair Cheryl Tougias presented a preliminary build out plan that she had configured for three of the primary properties that could face redevelopment.

Those plans dropped the maximum height that could be allowed there down by 10 feet and allowed first floor parking underneath the buildings so the sites could provide enough spaces to support occupants without the expense of constructing underground parking.
