Almost one year after the Sudbury Zoning Board of Appeals opened public hearings on the 40B Johnson Farm project, the Board on Wednesday gave conditional approval for the construction of 56 town houses.
The project will be called The Residences at Johnson Farm, at 189 Landham Road.
As recently as July 24, residents still hoped to head off the proposed housing development and crowded into the Conservation Commission's meeting at Town Hall.
The project started out as a proposed 120-unit apartment complex. The developer, Robert Moss, has agreed to several reductions since then.
40B refers to the Massachusetts law passed in 1969 that allows developers more flexibility in bypassing local zoning laws if they set aside at least 25 percent of new housing units for low and moderate income residents at rates deemed affordable. The 56-unit development would include 14 affordable units.
