LWVN Northland Project Forum (Mar. 3 Referendum)

February 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

YES or NO – Proposed Northland Development Project on Needham and Oak Streets:

Newton voters will have a chance to decide the future of the Northland Development Project in a binding referendum election to take place on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 (coinciding with the presidential primary election).

The question to be placed before the voters is as follows: Shall the following measure which was passed by the City Council be approved?A measure which changes the zoning of parcels of land located at 156 Oak Street, 275-281 Needham Street and 55 Tower Road (commonly known as the Northland Project) from Mixed Use 1 District (MU1) to Business 4 District (BU4). The zoning change would allow for the construction of the Northland Project as described in a special permit and site plan approval granted by the City Council.

Join us on Thursday, February 13th for a forum to learn more about this referendum question.

We will hear from presenters on both sides of the issues and, at the end of the presentations, attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions. RSVPs to info@lwvnewton.org or via Facebook are appreciated!
