Appeal of state impact decision eyed
Danforth Farm study inadequate, groups contend
By Jenn Abelson

Town officials and residents are considering appealing the state's
environmental certification for the Villages at Danforth Farm, saying
the study inadequately addresses concerns about the effects of the
largest residential development ever proposed in Framingham.

The report is silent on issues involving air and sound quality,
residents contend, and fails to respond to worries about contamination
on the entire 170-acre Saxonville site, part of which had a chemical
spill from experiments conducted by the Air Force in 1986.

Framingham officials identified concerns about municipal wells near the
proposed 683-unit development on New England Sand and Gravel, along with
other water and management issues at the project, which borders Wayland.

''They really did not address the concerns of the town, and there's a
lot of concerned citizens that they also did not address in any way,''
Abdul Alkhatib, Framingham's assistant director of public works.

Alkhatib said he plans to discuss appealing the certification when Peter
Sellers, director of public works, returns this week from vacation.
