Brookline to developer: affordable housing is fine, just not in our town

Developer Roth Family, LLC proposed a six story, 45 unit apartment building, nine of which would be affordable, in the Coolidge Corner area of Brookline. The project would have just 17 parking spaces, but the site at 40 Centre Street is a short walk from the C Line stop at Coolidge Corner, close to the 66 bus route, walkable to Allston Village and the neighborhood is well-served by grocery stores, restaurants, gyms, cafes and even a bookstore and movie theater. 249 more words

Failing the test of environmental conservation

I have worked as a hydrologist and environmental scientist for 30 years.  Over that time hope for environmental conservation has given way to fatalism.  Governments of all ilk have failed to reverse environmental and biodiversity decline.  1,107 more words
