About us

This website started with 8 neighbors from Newton Highlands looking to see if we were alone in how we felt about Northland’s massive proposed development.  It has grown into so much more.  We have met and have been joined by incredibly passionate and tireless folks from Upper Falls and beyond and our membership has grown to over 300 neighbors and continues to grow by the day.  Many of us have spent countless hours gathering and distilling information about this proposed project to continue to make sure that regular folks like us — folks that are busy with work, kids and everything else that life brings our way — have a place to go to learn about this proposed development and what we can do make it… right sized.

We are not activists or politicians; we are just like you: parents, professionals, neighbors, residents of Newton (most are long-time, some relatively new) that care deeply about our neighborhoods, our schools, our city and our future.

We have no financial stake in any development project in the city of Newton and we take no outside money to pay for this website, our flyers, or anything else (though we do ask our supporters to contribute via our GoFundMe, if they can).

So, if you haven’t already, please register so that we can all continue to stay informed and so that we can all benefit from each other’s knowledge and expertise as we drive this opposition to outsized development forward together.
