Community meeting
Mon. Feb. 17,  7:00 – 9:00 pm
New Art Center, 61 Washington Park

The city has requested proposals from developers to build a mixed-use development on the Austin St. parking lot. This proposed development would include first floor commercial space, mixed-income residential space, public parking and private parking.   Of the six proposals received by the city, the three now being considered are the largest: each 4 stories and 80 or more units.

Newtonville Area Council is still conducting an on-line survey to solicit opinions about the proposed Austin Street development.  Click here to take the survey.

The meeting will provide a forum for the Newtonville community to ask questions and express their views before Mayor Warren selects a developer.

Open to all, this meeting is being hosted by the Newtonville Neighborhood Association, a neighborhood advocacy group dedicated to preserving the village character of Newtonville.  The meeting will be moderated by Jenn Adams, News Director for New TV.  Ward 2 Aldermen Susan Albright, Marcia Johnson and Emily Norton will be attending and available to answer questions from the public about the project.  Mayor Warren and the Newtonville Neigborhood Area Council have also been invited.

Following a brief presentation, the Community Meeting will be devoted to public comment. Comments will be compiled and shared with the Mayor.

All members of the Newtonville community interested in the possibility of big changes to Newtonville and their potential impact on village character, traffic and parking, are invited to attend and contribute feedback.
