Opportunity to complete the Cove Park!

Posted on Tuesday 4 September 2007

Mayor Cohen has entered the City into an agreement with the owner of 230 Lake Street that would allow Newton to purchase the sole remaining property between the Cove Park and the new Open Space at the swimming area. The Owner had her property for sale this summer. With the encouragement and support of Ward 6 Aldermen- an appraisal and negotiations were begun leading to the current opportunity.
Still, this purchase is contingent upon CPC participation and Aldermen approvals. This ‘vision’ for completing the Park may allow for the preservation and reuse of the home located there; (something that could not be assured by a private purchase.) And -obviously- the greatest benefit is the addition of this beautiful waterfront Park land space and passive recreation for all of Newton’s citizens.

The CPC will need to see support for this proposition when they consider it at their Sept. 11 and/or Sept. 26 meetings.
and feel free to communicate your support to the Mayor and Aldermen now.
