     Riverside Development News

On Nov. 18, 2019, the Newton City Council passed a compromise zoning plan that we helped reach with the developer and our Ward 4 City Councilors.

Although zoning was approved, there is still a lot of work ahead!

On Monday December 9th Mark Development filed a revised special permit application for a mixed-use project to fit within the 1.025 million square feet compromise zone. You can download and view an overview of the project

The Council's Land Use Committee is finishing its debate over the Special Permit. We expect those hearings to culminate in a vote in Ocotober 2020.  For more information, visit the RightSize Riverside site.

In anticipation of construction related effects on parking in Lower Falls, the Ward 4 Councilors have requested the City develop a new parking plan for our neighborhood. Please send your feedback to Councilor Josh Krintzman or Chris Markiewicz.

Donate to fund the legal, traffic, and other professional services we need now to bolster our work on behalf of the neighborhood.


Support the Riverside Committee at this critical time when the Zoning and Planning and Land Use Committees hearings are underway.
