    Mark your calendars! Show up! Make your voice heard!

    Sunday, February 10, 4-6:30PM (presentation at 5PM)

    This is the first community engagement meeting for the visioning our communities fought so hard to get. 

    Meet the team at Civic Moxie, the consultants hired to run visioning. 

    Visit “work stations” and give important input on what gets developed at Riverside (more details on flyer below).

    This was just announced  - we'll provide more details when we have them.

    On Sunday, February 10th at 4:00 p.m., the City of Newton Planning Department and their consultant, Civic Moxie invite you to attend a Community Open House to help us create the future vision for the Riverside Station site. See flyer attached.

    Go online to see more about the vision plan and to sign up for occasional emails:

    The Riverside Station is an important site for the City and the region. The area has been and is currently the subject of private development efforts. A vision plan for the area will assist the City in evaluating future development proposals for the site as well as addressing how to better integrate the site into the greater community. Therefore, the City of Newton Planning Department, with the help of a consultant team, Civic Moxie is engaging the broader community in informing the development of a vision plan for the Riverside Station site.

    Please share widely with your networks.

    Happy New Year! Despite the holidays, the LFIA Riverside Committee has been busy tracking the Riverside proposal and issues of concern. Here's a brief recap:

    • A great turnout at the City Council Zoning and Planning Committee (ZAP) meeting on 12/10 led to the City agreeing to undertake visioning, although we continue to have concerns about the process. See the recent article in the Newton Tab here:
    • We greatly appreciate the efforts of our Ward 4 Councilors and everyone who turned out for that meeting in December. You made a difference!! 
    • We continue to meet with individual City Councilors to express our concerns about Riverside, in keeping with our mission to educate and advocate for community interests.
    • A "sister" committee is being formed in Auburndale and will help to engage their neighborhood and work with us as we move forward.
    • We have a new website in progress. Visit us at:
