It was a packed house (chamber) last night. Folks came out with signs of support for the proposed eminent domain taking of Webster Woods.  There were some who expressed reservations and objections:  Notably, Boston College Administration, Boston College alums, Newton Youth Soccer and other residents concerned about the significant amount of CPA funds going towards a single project. Just a reminder:  The CPC Request requested by the Conservation Commission $15,740,000 ($15,200,000 for land acquisition + $15,000 for Newton Conservators Administration fee for holding Conservation Restriction + $525,000 for legal and other costs)- $200,000 raised by the Community for a total project cost of $15,940,000.
