Challenges and Choices: Large House Review Study Committee Community Workshop

Date: Wednesday, June 1
Time: 7:30 p.m. to 9:45 p.m.
Location: James Hugh Powers Hall, Needham Town Hall

The Large House Review Study Committee invites you to attend a community workshop to discuss the construction of new homes within existing Needham neighborhoods and how that trend should best be managed moving forward.

The workshop is one in a series of planned meetings, leading to the development of a regulatory approach to guide the future growth and evolution of Needham's residential neighborhoods. The goal is to develop a program which accommodates current land use needs and protects private property rights while at the same time strengthening the quality of life in Needham and protecting valued community resources.

For more information about this community workshop, see the flyer.
