Between Turtle Lane, Rowe Street , the medical marijuana dispensary and a discussion last night about tear-downs, this has already been a big month for meetings, debates and teeth grinding about development projects in Newton.
But wait, there’s more this week!
- Tonight (Tuesday) at 6:30 p.m. there’s a public Zoning Board of Appeals hearing in the Aldermanic Chambers about the proposed 40B project at 135 Wells Ave. (Globe story here.)
- Ninety minutes later, at 8 p.m. at the Newton North cafeteria, the city is organizing the first of many meetings to share ideas about the Austin Street Lot, now that a developer has been chosen and as work begins on coming up with the right design.
- Tomorrow (Wednesday) the 135 Wells Ave project is back on the agenda for a Land Use Committee Public Hearing at 7 p.m.
- But the fun doesn’t stop there. On Thursday, it’s back to the ZBA for a discussion of the proposed 40B project at Court Street.
What do you make of all these projects? Will you attend any or all of these meetings? Which ones do you support or oppose? And after several hours of compelling civic discourse will you go home and watch the late-starting Red Sox? Or will you feel you’ve suffered enough?
