Homeowners and environmental activists in Belmont and Cambridge hope to stop development involving the Alewife Reservation after a ruling in state court went the builder's way.

A hearing on the issue is set for Monday, Jan. 23, in courtroom 610 at the Woburn Superior Courthouse, 200 Trade Center, near exit 35 off Route 128.

A Middlesex Superior Court judge in December turned back an appeal, opening the door to a $70 million in housing planned for the Belmont Uplands.

A lawyer for project opponents said his clients appealed the ruling this month, first seeking a court injunction to prevent O’Neill Properties Group from cutting down trees and doing any site work until opponents have their appeal heard. For more, see an earlier story at Boston.com >>
