Even so, city officials remain unhappy with Boulderwood. Gamache, noting that blasting starts tomorrow, fears the quality of life for people on Bartholomew, Lynn and Lynnfield streets will deteriorate because of the disruption caused by construction and because of the density of the completed subdivision.
The Lynn access road becomes essential as result, he stressed.
Boulderwood was first proposed in the mid-1990s and soon sparked bitter opposition, especially from residents on nearby Bartholomew Street, which was initially slated to be the only entrance and exit for the residents of a proposed 110 homes. Since then, a second entrance has been planned on Sunset Road in Lynn.
That is now under challenge by officials in Lynn, who are opposed to the project.
