Newton forming advisory group for Manet Hill Reservoir

Following the recent meeting concerning possible future uses of the  Manet Hill Reservoir, Newton City staff are looking for interested citizens to be part of an advisory group that thinks about the future of the Manet Hill Reservoir. The deadline is Dec. 8th to submit a submission of interest.

If you wish to be considered as a member of an advisory group to study this site,  please forward a brief letter of interest explaining why you would like to participate and how you think you can contribute to the discussion.  As I mentioned in the recent meeting, the charge of the group is to consider a range of possible future land uses and within 90 days, to make recommendations to the Board of Aldermen and the Mayor.  Whether you are an interested neighbor with a good view of the neighborhood or an individual with expertise in landscape architecture, real estate finance, historic preservation, recreation, architecture, planning, land use or some other related field, your involvement is welcome.  12-14 individuals will be selected to serve, and meetings will be open to the public, so all will have an opportunity to listen to the discussion and stay involved once the group begins its work.  Please forward your letter of interest and/or resumee to Candace Havens at by December 8th; members will be announced within two weeks.  The first kick-off meeting is tentatively planned for the first week of January.  Feel free to contact Candace Havens (  if you have any questions.
