Open Space Acquisition

Throughout Ken's tenure on the Board of Aldermen, he has worked to protect Newton’s open spaces from development and to maintain and preserve our existing parks and woods. In 2001, he lead the effort on the Board of Aldermen to place the Community Preservation Act acceptance question on our local ballot and I worked hard to inform people about the benefits of being a CPA community. Since adoption of CPA, he has worked to make sure that we get the most benefit to our community possible, including the most open space, for every dollar we spend.
