As fignewtonville said on a previous thread, Austin Street really needs new thread. As someone tangentially affected by what happens in Newtonville, since I drive through it often and occasionally shop there –if I can park easily, I’ve been wanting to read the proposals in detail, which you can do on the city website, but I just haven’t had time.
Have other people delved into the details? Aside from one person’s reaction that I read, that they’re all just too big, what do people in Newtonville, or elsewhere, see as the pros and cons of each? Does anyone have a clear favorite? Or least favorite? Which ones should be the leading candidates? Are there issues you see that didn’t come up at the June 27 community meeting? And what did you learn at the meeting?
