Re BOA820986 – 217 Commonwealth Avenue, Ward 5


Dear Chairperson Araujo and Members of the Board,


I am writing in opposition to the proposed roof terrace at 217 Commonwealth Avenue. I believe that the proposed 1300 s.f. roof deck and bar is inappropriate in a residential district and will have a detrimental effect on the quality of life for its neighbors and the community at large. I ask the board to continue to protect our residential zoning, which has encouraged the creation one of the most desirable residential communities in Massachusetts, and perhaps in the country.


Thank you very much for your consideration.


Respectfully yours,



Signed: _____________________________________
