The Newton City Council will consider an offer Tuesday to settle a dispute over the 334-unit affordable/workforce housing complex at Wells Ave., Jonathan Dame of the Newton TAB reports.

[Cabot, Cabot & Forbe’s] offer includes $1 million to reconstruct the intersection of Wells Avenue and Nahanton Street; $1 million to fund other affordable housing in Newton; $750,000 for other Wells Avenue infrastructure improvements; $223,000 in water-sewer mitigation fees, and $170,226 in tree-removal fees.

The settlement is the same as a deal offered last year, except the developer “no longer has offered to create additional commercial development in the park,” the city’s Law Department wrote in a memo to the council.
