Alert- car trespassing and theft

Several neighbors from all parts of Chestnut Hill have recently reported theft of items (rolls of quarters, a laptop, a wallet) from cars left unlocked overnight.  All took place in the wee hours of the night (midnight to 5 am). Items were removed and possessions riffled through. Please remember to lock your car at night and if you have something stolen, report to Newton police. It may be hard to take the time, but it will help them evaluate the scope of the problem.

More information on proposed changes at the Street

We heard you, neighbors! Many of you who took our survey about the proposed changes at the Street said you would like more information. So, we’ve dug into the City of Newton public records and found these two images which were presented at the Land Use Committee meeting on September 20th.

You can see the whole presentation here. 

Review the planning memo, stormwater report, engineering memo and more here (look under  Boylston Street “The Street” (1-55) – #261-16)

Or listen to an audio of the meeting here. 

View the Land Use committe Report following the 9/20/2016 meeting here. 

The Street is supposed to be on the schedule of the next Conservation Commission meeting, to be held Nov. 10th. The next date that Land Use will hear The Street has not yet been determined.

If you missed the survey, you can go back and take a look here. Let us know what you think!

Road work coming up in Chestnut Hill

Please be aware that the City’s contractor for milling and paving, Lorusso Corp., is currently scheduled to mill Suffolk Road in its entirety and Hammond Street from Ward Street to Stone Ave. This is scheduled to begin on Tuesday 11.1 and should be completed by Wednesday 11.2 but could potentially run to Thursday 11.3.

Detours, similar to those in place for the sidewalk work currently going on, will be set up. These roads will be closed, for the most part, while this work is going on for the safety of the workers, pedestrians and the motoring public alike. As work progresses the road blocks will often roll in one direction or another. This is entirely under the control of the police on site as to what is the safest and most expedient way for traffic to proceed. Residents of the affected neighborhoods should be notified either by Robo-call or by mail.

Paving of these streets is currently scheduled for the following week, most likely Wednesday 11.9 and Thursday 11.10 weather permitting. Understand that rain will effect this paving schedule but not the milling schedule.

Sidewalk work has already begun.
