The Newton Lower Falls Improvement Association formed the LFIA Riverside Committee in April 2018 to understand, assess, and advocate for the best interest of the Lower Falls community and our neighbors in response to the proposed development at the Riverside MBTA Station. This advocacy work takes hours of volunteer time and will cost significant sums to pay for the expertise of consultants - legal, financial, transportation, environmental, etc. - needed to understand the complex information we confront during the approval process with the city of Newton and Commonwealth.

You can support this work in a many ways:

  • Join the LFIA as a Lower Falls Resident or for non-Lower Falls residents as a "Friend"
  • Subscribe to the Riverside email list and get emails to keep you informed and know how to act by writing letters, attending meetings, etc.
  • Participate in a forum on important topics related understanding to the development, particularly you have an expertise in an area such as housing, transportation, finances, environment, etc.
  • Volunteer your time/ expertise to help the committee prepare responses or communicate our message, email us to let us know how you want to help
  • Donate below to help us cover the expenses of this work.

The Riverside Committee Fund is a dedicated fund of the Newton Lower Falls Improvement Association.

Donations to this fund will be used exclusively for the activities of the committee and are tax deductible.
