SHIRLEY — After its pitch in Shirley the week before, the proposal for senior housing off Hospital Road surfaced at the Joint Boards of Selectmen on April 24.
The first phase of the project could potentially carry 30 to 40 units, built on land that MassDevelopment owns right behind the Ayer Shirley Regional Middle school.
But the zoning for that land is commercial, explained Jackie Esielionis of Shirley’s Economic Development Committee. She asked JBOS to consider holding a super town meeting to vote on the zoning change.
