At last year’s Annual Meeting, the League membership approved a Land Use Study, including a review of LWVN’s Land Use positions. Two meetings have been scheduled for League members to come to consensus on this important issue.
Daytime meeting: Wednesday, March 23, from 11:30am-1:30pm
Evening meeting: Thursday, March 24, from 7:00-9:00pm
We will be discussing/coming to consensus on the following questions:
- Housing What types of housing should be available in Newton?
- Fiscal Policy How can Newton achieve a balance amongst its mix of commercial and residential uses to address the full range of housing types that support a diverse population and meet (achieve, accomplish, ….) economic development goals?
- Sustainability What makes a development project “sustainable,” and how important is this?
- Zoning What are some effective ways to regulate land use & development through zoning?
(Each meeting will begin with a presentation about these four issues.)
Both meetings will be held in the NewTV Conference Room, 23 Needham Street, Newton Highlands.
Brown bag lunches or dinners welcome; coffee and dessert will be served.
All members are invited to attend one or both meetings. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
