Newton’s Land Use Committee approved the proposed mixed use project at Austin Street Thursday night, 6-1, with one abstention.
Voting in favor Marc Laredo, Greg Schwartz, Scott Lennon, Susan Albright, Deb Crossley, Rick Lipof
Opposed: Jim Cote
Abstained: Jay Harney
The project now goes to the full board Monday night, Nov. 16, where the vote is expected to be much closer. It’s likely that the full board won’t vote Monday and that the decision will be delayed until December.
