The Dedham Zoning Board of Appeals will meet on Tuesday to continue a discussion from April 22 regarding the proposed development of an assisted living facility in town.
Artis Senior Living, LLC is looking to develop 36,000 square-foot, 72-unit assisted living facility in the area of 255 and 303 West st. in Dedham. Artis has also sought to construct a 64-bed nursing home in Reading.
Representatives with the Charles Riverway Preservation Alliance, however, are asking for Dedham residents to attend the ZBA meeting Tuesday to opposed the project.
The CRPA which comprises residents and community members, is "committed to preserving Dedham's historical and natural assets along the Charles River," according to its Facebook page, and is asking residents to attend Tuesday night's hearing to oppose the project.
"This project threatens to take over nearly 8 acres of forested land on the Charles River in Dedham," the CRPA wrote on Facebook. "All we're asking is that the town uphold our current zoning regulations. Artis is welcome to come to Dedham to build on land that is property zone, but not on a Residential A zoned land."
The meeting will run from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday in the Lower Conference Room at Dedham Town Hall.
