  1. To the residents of Watertown
    Please join me in requesting the Zoning Board table the hearing for developments on Spruce street and Waltham street .

    We are only 4 square miles – it doesn’t have to be in your back yard – we all should support preserving our neighborhoods- to have our voice heard at a public meeting .
    A 253 apartments
    Houses on Waltham Street is unacceptable .

    Please join me – call me (617)840-7689 – sign my petition requesting the zoning board to table this Wednesday’s meeting for another month .
    No one stood with me or spoke 13 years ago when as your town councilor at large
    I was the ONLY.
    Councilor to vote NO against the horrific zoning ordnance sponsored by District D Town Councillor John Lawn

    – Now now see the ever-growing results on Pleasant Street and surrounding streets
    The ordnance forever prohibits the building of family homes – from single families to 3 families and allows 5 story buildings and business -( restaurant on Howard Street)
    I did not run again for Town Council after every Councillor voted for this zoning ordnance sponsored by the District Councillor.
    Please don’t let it happen again! .
    Thank you
    Marilyn (617)840-7689

  2. We have enough apartments in Watertown the zoning board should be trashed.
    We have enough on pleasant st the traffic is terrible.

  3. Another fact is a lot of these new apartment buildings are only around half full. There are a lot of vacant rentals just look at the listings on line. The town should consider a surcharge on any apartment building that is not at least 90% occupied.

  4. With only 4 square miles, any location is in everyone’s back yard.
    The increasing density of these mega-projects hasn’t done anything to share the burden of the individual’s tax bill.
