In July 2017, the Board of Directors of the Newton Conservators wrote to each candidate for Mayor of Newton, stating the board’s position on the preservation of Webster Woods. The Board expressed its support for the preservation of the entire wooded portion of the site, including Bare Pond and the MASCO parking lot located within the wooded area.
The reply from candidate Ruthanne Fuller, who was elected Mayor in November 2017.
