New Year 2019 Update

January 04, 2019 11:35 PM | Ted Chapman (Administrator)

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:

Here's to a successful year ahead!
