Neighborhood Meeting on the Waltham High School Project’s potential location at Chesterbrook Woods

The Waltham School Committee and Waltham School Building Committee will hold a Neighborhood Meeting on the Waltham High School Project and its potential location at Chesterbrook Woods, a 25.5-acre parcel of land adjacent to the Robert Treat Paine Estate.

The public hearing is on Wednesday, January 10th, 6:00 pm at the Cannon Lecture Hall, Waltham High School, 617 Lexington St.

On November 15, 2017 the Waltham Land Trust submitted a letter to City Officials advocating for the continued conservation of the Chesterbrook Woods, also known as the Coleman-Stanton Property, and opposing its use as a potential location for the new high school. Read the WLT’s full statement.

There is an on-line petition, created by the neighborhood group Coalition to Save Chesterbrook Woods, stating “We strongly oppose the use of Chesterbrook Woods as the site for a new high school.”

The Friends of Stonehurst have written a position letter to the Waltham City Council.
