Planning Board approves development of farm

GLYNDON

GLYNDON -- The Planning Board approved a plan yesterday to build 139 homes on one of the last large undeveloped tracts in the area.

Residents had hoped to save the 96-acre farm off Bond Avenue from development, but a push for more restrictive zoning prompted owner Frederick Wilson Jr. to sell the land to a developer.

The project goes before a county hearing officer for approval. Under the proposal, 20 percent of the land would be preserved as open space and no more than 69 houses would be built while Wilson and his sister live on the farm.
