FORJ views the Northland Project as an incredible opportunity for growth in Newton. This is a responsive City, with members who have actively worked to make this development a success and will continue to be responsive to concerns. The Northland Project is an extensively researched project that was approved by the majority of our City Council Members. We will endorse their vote and hope that you will be joining us by voting Yes on 3.
