The Suffolk Downs project is a planned 11 million square feet of development on the approximately 109 acres of the Suffolk Downs racetrack site. The multi-phased proposal will include development of a new mixed-use neighborhood, 40 acres of publicly-accessible open space, and two retail squares at Suffolk Downs and Beachmont MBTA stations. The initial project phase will include a 500,000 square foot office building with ground floor retail.
The purpose of this scoping session is for the MEPA Environmental Analyst, State Agency Officials, and the public to learn about the project, the project proponent’s request for a Phase 1 Waiver, and to inform the Scope of the EIR. There will be time allocated for questions and clarifications from members of the public.
If you plan to come by public transit, take the MBTA Blue Line to Suffolk Downs station. A shuttle will be running back and forth to the Suffolk Downs Clubhouse.
Prior to the scoping session, a site visit will be held, beginning at 3:30.
