Send your thoughts on Washington Place to City Council today!

On Monday night, the Newton City Council will vote on the permit for the proposed Washington Place project in Newtonville.  LWVN supports this proposal because it includes 160 units of housing close to transit and amenities, 25% affordable to low- and middle-income households, village center revitalization, pedestrian and traffic improvements, LEED Gold certification, transit subsidies, and ZipCar and bike facilities, among other benefits.  [See the next post for a link to the LWVN letter in support of this project.]

Make your voice heard today by emailing your comments to citycouncil@newtonma.gov.
