Borderline isn't the only one alarmed by out-of-control development in Waltham
Just a few days after posting my last rant against developers and the Waltham city councillors who support them, I spotted a letter in the News Tribune written by Judy Derle of North Waltham, lamenting the changes that have turned North Waltham into a developers' playground. Here's an excerpt:
... I am apalled at all the construction that is going on in North Waltham. It used to be a refuge from the downtown area -- a nice, quiet suburban landscape. Now we will be just as or maybe even more congested as downtown. All that is left for City Council to do is to allow another Shaw’s Supermaket and CVS somewhere in the residential area of Trapelo Road and that will make it complete. It’s something I wouldn’t put past them to do. Thanks for the article and the update with the trees. Thanks for letting me vent. Is it too late to sell?City Councillors, Mayor McCarthy, and the Planning Department, take heed: The citizenry of Waltham is fed up with development. What are you going to do about it?
