Capital Group Properties presents to you The Landing Lancaster project, which will bring jobs, nearly $4 million every year to Lancaster in net taxes, shopping and restaurants, and housing to meet your needs. We will be presenting two articles at a Special Town Meeting on November 14th 2022, and if they pass, we will become the #1 taxpayer in Lancaster. The first article will create a 40R Smart Growth Overlay District, and the second article would be for an Enterprise District Expansion. The Landing Lancaster….for an even better Lancaster.

Thank you to all who came out and voted last night. We were successful on the 40R Smart Growth article, but fell 15 votes short of the needed 2/3 majority on the Enterprise District Expansion. We appreciate the time you gave up in the evening for our project.

In case you missed our Nov. 9th Zoom Presentation

WHAT'S NEW

In the last few years, numerous joint meetings with the Lancaster Affordable Housing Trust & Economic Development Committee were held to discuss making this proposal a signature development Lancaster can be proud of.

We’re excited to announce the vision for The Landing now includes the establishment of a potential 40R Smart Growth District for a portion of the property between Lunenburg Road & the FC Stars Soccer Complex.

This vision requires two rezoning articles which include the proposed 40R Smart Growth District & an expansion of the Enterprise Zone, to be voted on by residents at the November 14th 2022 Special Town Meeting. We encourage you to learn more about these articles, ask questions, & invite friends & family to join in support of this important opportunity to secure Lancaster’s future.

OUR COMMITMENT

“We are still committed to continuing to work with the community and its residents, boards & commissions as well as state agencies including MEPA & DEP to bring forth the best possible project for the Town of Lancaster with mitigation measures that properly account for any abutter, traffic & environmental project impacts and making this proposed development a signature project by which future projects will be measured for decades to come throughout Central Massachusetts.”

WHY NOW?

This proposal helps Lancaster maximize the benefits to the Town to:

  • meet its affordable housing goals
  • prevent unchecked 40B housing development in town
  • secure state funding to offset additional education costs
  • inject nearly $4 million in new real estate taxes every year into the town budget
  • create new jobs for the region

As Lancaster faces a budget crisis that threatens to force cuts in municipal services & increases in property taxes, this project is the next step to keeping this community a wonderful place to live, work, & raise a family.
