Pitbulls attacked a local dog today around noon in front of 154. This is the 3rd time these pitbulls have attacked dogs on the street. Police responded, which is the 5th time they have been called to house regarding the dogs behavior in the past 2 years.
After the last attack, a public hearing was held and the dogs owners didn’t bother to show up. They were fined.
Newton Police needs to step up and take control of this situation. If you agree, please let Officer Torres of Animal Control know at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have always wanted to live on Furbush, now’s your chance. 22 Furbush is a 3 bed/1.5 bath colonial with 1,770 sq/ft. Owners were probably listening to a lot Prince (RIP) when they painted the bedroom. Offers due Sunday you guys.
Block Party was awesome per usual. Thanks to everyone that organized and made this event possible.
The city passed a motion tonight to make Derby a one-way street westbound from Waltham to Cherry (towards Franklin). The decision can be appealed in the next 20 days. But a big win for the people (and the kids!) tonight.
Derby St is only 19-20′ wide, which is not wide enough for traffic to be passing in both directions. That section of street is 1,150 feet long and over 2,000 cars travel it each day.
The city’s major concern is that making Derby a one-way will encourage drivers to speed and that won’t be necessarily any safer.
Huge shout out to Miles & Brad for making this happen and all the parents that came out to voice concern for our kids. And Ken the crossing guard – he was there and spoke up for us.
Oh yeah it turns out there are no parking restrictions on Derby. Probably because no one in their right mind would park there. That being said, you’ll be able to park on Derby during pick up/drop off now. The city actually likes this since it will force traffic to slow down.
20 Day appeal period but good start you guys.
62 Davis is a 4 bed/2.5 bath with 2,608 sq/ft. Huge lot with almost 10,000 sq/ft you guys. FYI – Tamara from the lake thinks it’s a big price.
Only took a few days to find a buyer for this house that was listed on the corner of Watertown & Heaven… I mean Randlett Park you guys. Closing at the end of June. Maybe they’ll introduce themselves on the blog before then?
