Many residents of Brookline spoke out against the idea of building a

One of the major concerns was the lack of room in the schools in town. Another issue was the idea of building a large complex on “a street that isn’t really a street.”

What do you think about this? Is the school capacity reason enough to not build this development? Is this development too big? Do you want more affordable housing in Brookline? Do you think this is too much of a “Not In My Back Yard” routine?

If the overcrowding of the schools is the problem, the street that is not a street and the snobery of not in my back yard low income senior housing would be a perfect fit for the project. There are more and more of us every day looking for safe neighborhoods to live in. SMD

You can say potato, I can say pahtato - no matter how thin you slice it, i'ts still smells the same = “a street that isn’t really a street”– is just so much obfuscation. To waste dollars on legal maneuvering on a clear attempt to retroactively declare an area a histerical district will not float. Good money wasted that would more appropriately be spent to provide the projected increase in school seats would be the place for the smart money to go! This born in Brookline resident thinks it high time we relegated the "Town Meeting" (BC) to the dust bin and became the city we should be. Mayor and department heads accountable to the voters instead of the SELECTMEN accountable/dependent upon the department heads!
