Community Preservation Committee’s two upcoming meetings

The Community Preservation Committee will consider converting to debt financing the portions of the CPA funding for 300 Hammond Pond Parkway (“Webster Woods”) previously recommended for direct funding. This revision would affect no other provision of the previous CPC recommendation or City Council orders for this project.

January 14th, 7:00 pm, Newton City Hall Room 204

The Newton Housing Authority’s proposal for accepting the affordable housing portfolio developed by CAN-DO is scheduled for a joint public hearing with the CPC (for a $1.5 million CPA request) and the Planning & Development Board (for a $426,744 CDBG request).  Your written comments must be received by January 24th for forwarding ahead of this meeting.

February 11th, 7:00 pm, Newton Senior Center, 345 Walnut Street, Newtonville
