馬惠美競選牛頓市市長- community notes 10/4

Good Morning Newton Residents!

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! 

Campaign season is in full blast! We completed our village Run with Amy events this week with a 1.5 mile run in Newton Centre! It was great meeting residents and speaking about the issues many residents about - schools, transparency or lack of transparency in government, housing and development, and the state of the city in general. Please visit my website to find out about more events or just send me an email so we can meet! I'd love to hear from you about any issues or concerns you may have and what you'd like to see in the next four years! 

By the way, our Let's talk about West Newton Square on Wednesday was a huge success! We had a huge turnout (about 70% within a 10-minute walk of West Newton Square) and guests including City Councilors Pam Wright, Julia Malakie, and Andrea Kelley along with Michael Halle, Chair of the Transportation Advisory Group, and developer Robert Korff, who shared information about the Dunstan East project and plans for the Santander Bank and the West Newton Armory. You can watch the video here and see poll results here. Please feel free to visit my campaign website at www.sangiolo.org or contact me by email at teamsangiolo@gmail.com to learn more about me and my vision for Newton. 


Below you will find this week's Newton Community and Local Government update. I hope the information contained in these weekly newsletters will provide you with a snapshot of the policies, programs, and services our elected and appointed officials/bodies are working on and keep you informed and engaged in local government and our community.

And now, here is this week's Newton Community and Local Government Update:

With warm regards,

What’s Up in Newton this Week – COVID-19 Update; City Council to vote on Levingston Cove Improvement Project (Fishing Wall); Land Use to hold public hearing on another 275 Grove Street Special Permit Application for Lab and Research Facility; Public Safety to discuss Police Reform Task Force Recommendations and Implementation; and more…..

COVID-19 Update: The number of COVID-19 confirmed cases have increased to 5,122 and the number of confirmed deaths has sadly risen to 217. The Newton data can be found here and the NPS data can be found here.

Full Council to vote Levingston Cove Improvement Project: The City Council will take up the $1.4 million CPA-funded, controversial Levingston Cove Improvement Project that is intended to bring accessibility and other improvements to Crystal Lake. See project documents here. Members of the Crystal Lake Conservancy and Friends of Crystal Lake appear to agree that there needs to be improvements but they believe that the project proposed by the Parks and Recreation Commission is too intrusive to the environment and believe that an alternative would be less intrusive and still create accessibility to the Lake. See the Programs and Services Report here and the Finance Committee Report here.

Lab and Research Space for 275 Grove Street? Yes – 275 Grove is back and now asking to amend their special permit again but this time to allow for a height up to 8 stories. See Land Use Committee agenda here.

Three Police Reform Task Force items on Public Safety and Transportation Agenda on Wednesday: The Public Safety and Transportation Committee will take up three items docketed related to recommendations contained in the Police Reform Task Force Report. The Public Safety and Transportation Agenda can be found here.

Weekly Road Construction Schedule: This week’s road construction schedule can be found here.

Community News:

What is the freedge and what is the Drive for Five? The freedge is a community refrigerator & pantry that is open 24/7 and provides free food and personal care products to anyone who needs them, no questions asked and no sign up needed. The freedge is organized by Newton Food Pantry in collaboration with many local organizations, including Newton Neighbors. It is a volunteer-led, community-supported resource, with the motto “take what you need, leave what you can”.

The Drive for Five is a project organized by Newton Neighbors to support the freedge. It is a community-wide effort to stock the freedge with five particularly high-demand items. 

How can I help? We encourage families to shop for items together and to use this as an opportunity to talk about food insecurity in our community and beyond, and how we can come together to support our neighbors.

What to donate: The five items to donate for the drive are cooking oil, pasta, pasta sauce (your choice), toothpaste, and liquid hand or body soap. If you’d like, feel free to add more groceries or personal care items. This is a great way to get kids engaged in thinking about the foods they like to share with others and picking things to donate. We also encourage you to remember that Newton is a diverse and multicultural community, and to consider donating additional culturally-specific foods (e.g., tortillas, sauces or spices, Asian vegetables, etc.). The freedge accepts a wide range of items, but there are some limits for food safety – please review the donation guidelines for details.

Where to donate: You can bring your donations directly to the freedge, which is located at 420 Watertown Street (the parking lot of Central Drapery and Dry Cleaning in Nonantum) or to 174 Oliver Rd, 39 Berkshire Rd, or 184 Islington Rd.

When to donate: The Drive for Five will run from October 1-13. After that, we will no longer be collecting items at the homes listed but you are welcome to bring donations directly to the freedge anytime.

Is your family experiencing food insecurity? If your family needs food, the freedge is a resource for you. It’s free, and you can visit it anytime day or night (420 Watertown Street in the parking lot of Central Drapery and Dry Cleaning in Nonantum). The freedge has milk, eggs, produce, bread, rice, pasta, beans, peanut butter, prepared foods and much more! Please take only what you need on the day you visit and leave the rest for your neighbors. You can see this multilingual freedge flyer for more information.

Harvest Fair 
October 16 & 17, Newton Centre Green
As the fall winds begin to blow, leaves change colors and one hundred or more tents “set up shop” on Newton Centre green, it hits you ……it’s Harvest Fair time! For 46 years this Autumnal celebration has brought our community together in one place to share good food, peruse unique hand- crafted goods, learn about local businesses, discover ways to create a “greener Newton” and of course watch the kiddies delight in their first ride on the ever popular caterpillar rollercoaster courtesy of Cushing Amusements. This year’s Harvest Fair will be October 16 and 17.  Saturday the 16th will be amusement rides only (purchase tickets at the event). On Sunday the rides will be joined by crafters and vendors, food trucks and live entertainment on two stages.   

The annual Halloween Window Painting Event is on Saturday, October 23, 2021! (Rain Date: Sunday, October 24)

Now in its 22nd year, the event provides a safe, fun opportunity for Newton area students, as well as their friends and family, to creatively celebrate Halloween.

The window painting event is open to Newton youth in Grades 3-8. Each artist is assigned a space on the outside of a business’ window in Newton’s participating villages on which to paint their masterpiece. The subject matter ranges from jack o’ lanterns, ghosts, goblins, witches, owls, to black cats and more, and each artist has their own particular take on the haunted holiday.

Dia De Los Muertos Celebration at the New Art Center
10/31, 11:00 AM  – 4:00 PM
New Art Center in collaboration with Zaira Meneses, a Mexican musician and recipient of the 2018 Boston Foundation Award, will be presenting a three day opportunity to create an authentic Day of the Dead experience.  Students of all ages are encouraged to participate in the art of making traditional Mexican altar pieces expressing gratitude to loved ones no longer with us. From paper cutting to piñata making, everyone is encouraged to take part in this three-day celebration being supervised by Zaira Meneses & Friends. Contact info@newartcenter.org if you’re interested in participating.

The exhibition date to view the altars will be open to the public on October 31st. Welcoming everyone will be the sounds of Son Jarocho, authentic music that originated in Mexico’s coastal Veracruz.  Traditional customary dress is optional, but we encourage everyone to be creative and participate!

No registration is necessary! You are welcome to drop in any time between 11 AM and 3:15 PM.
