Endorsements Of Coalition Recommendations

To date, the Westwood Coalition has received notice of endorsement of its recommendations regarding the historic business district from Westwood Works, Westwood Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation, and Westwood Civic Association.  Comments received from individuals via the website and email have been overwhelmingly positive.  The Coalition awaits word of one more organization’s response and then it will report its next steps and plans for more community engagement.  We hope you’ve had a chance to read the report and recommendations posted three weeks ago.  See the previous post.  Also, there is a lot of background reading on the form-based code under Further Reading.  We welcome your comments.
