Newton Parks & Recreation Gives Away Parkland For Parking

After hours of listening to arguments both pro and con, the Newton Parks & Recreation Commission voted 4/3 to give away (to tar over) a piece of parkland for a school parking lot, despite the fact that the Parks & Recreation Commissioners have taken an oath to preserve parkland.  Marash Girl believes the move was illegal.

  2. Outrageous! I hope the press was at this meeting. This vote must be widely known. Newton is NOT for sale!
