Proposed changes at The Street in Chestnut Hill


There is a pending proposal before the City of Newton Land Use, Conservation and Planning Commissions to change the structures in The Street shopping center in Chestnut Hill. The Chestnut Hill Association has begun to explore this proposal as it affects traffic, noise, and the quality, use and vista of Hammond Pond. The plans include two new structures, each of two stories, that would abut Hammond Pond and a new, underground two story garage. We’re curious about what you might think about this proposed development, so, please, tell us by taking this quick survey.
