Preserve Newton Parks
By completing this form, you add your name to the petition and attest to the following statement:
We, the undersigned, seek to preserve Albemarle Field as a park devoted to open space and outdoor recreation. We request that no buildings be developed on this park, including the proposed NewCAL senior center. Working together as a community, we're confident that we can find a solution that serves seniors without negatively impacting the recreation space that supports all citizens of Newton. We're also adamant that the definition of parkland includes open space, fields, courts, and existing community resources like the Gath pool.
Please sign this petition even if you signed the separate Change.org petition asking that City of Newton not allow development on any city parkland. Now that Albemarle is the single focus of parkland development, we need to hear your voice again in support of protecting this park specifically.
Total petition respondents: 826 (as of 11/20/19 @ 5:00 PM) - 95% are Newton residents
I would like to opt-in for future email updates on this issue.
Primary reason for signing:
