A referendum to decide the fate of the Northland project will go before Newton voters on March 3, the city council decided Tuesday.

The 21 to 1 vote (with Councilor Markiewicz the only no vote and Councilors Ciccone and Grossman absent) follows an effort to thwart the March 3 date by Councilor Norton the four others earlier this month. 

Before agreeing to the March 3 date, Councilor Baker proposed holding the vote on April 7 but the measure was defeated 14-8.
