City Council Votes to Save Webster Woods

On December 2nd, the Newton City Council voted unanimously to approve Mayor Fuller’s plan to use Community Preservation Act funds for an eminent domain taking of 17 acres of undeveloped land in Webster Woods that Boston College purchased in 2016.

Unless Boston College challenges the validity of the city’s taking in court, the fight to save Webster Woods has reached a successful conclusion!  Thanks to everyone who played a part in this important effort.
