SJC denies Holliston’s petition for Appellate Review
Green View Realty is pleased that the litigation on this proposed project has finally ended. This crowning decision further ratifies our original stated mission to remediate the land, bring it to a condition of no significant risk and to build much needed affordable housing in the Town of Holliston.
As in most things in life, timing plays an important role in the outcome of the best laid plans. Perhaps it is so here, and while the executive committees of Holliston may have believed that their unsubstantiated case was supported by their personal beliefs we now have the Massachusetts State Housing Appeals Committee, and each of the three hierarchal courts, affirming what we have committed to from the outset by using sound science, engineering and law abiding methods to achieve our latest milestone. Given our own timing we would have jumped the gun into a declining economy. So in the end Holliston’s employment of the court system may have been our blessing in disguise. Projects like this are excellent stimulus for economic development that will help lead the economy out of the recession by creating jobs, especially for the Citizens of Holliston.
