IMG_6155Like living near Fresh Pond? The future of Huron Village, as we know it, is on the line. Thousands of new units are in the pipeline, including 93 more units proposed at 75 New St. between Fresh Pond and Danehy Park, 20 units planned for the former Tokyo restaurant site, and 108 units on Concord Ave. at Wheeler St. by Trader Joe’s. The majority are small luxury units; where is the affordable family housing we need? See map of recent development. 

Inappropriately high-density development in the Concord Ave.-Alewife area is already having a negative impact on our quality of life and on the environment and safety. Namely:

  • Increased traffic congestion
  • Increased air & noise pollution
  • Public transit at or nearing maximum capacity
  • Reduced safety for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Threat to fragile Fresh Pond-Danehy-Alewife eco-system

When will we reach the tipping point?

Phase I of a 108 unit + retail development on corner of Concord Ave. & Wheeler St. by Trader Joe's.

Phase I of a 108 unit + retail development on corner of Concord Ave. & Wheeler St. by Trader Joe’s. Traffic on Wheeler empties onto Concord right at the rotary and will add to traffic going in and out of the shopping center at the same intersection. A nightmare for drivers and people going to and from Fresh Pond Reservation.
