Submit your event/s. Note that we limit event listings mainly to free or inexpensive public events in Wellesley, such as talks, films, theatre productions, concerts, etc. This is not a place for businesses to promote themselves, their classes, etc. Please don’t submit events that run for weeks and weeks. We approve event listings before they go live, typically within 24 hours.
No business sales, trunk shows, etc. (those would be paid advertisements). Please go easy on the ALL CAPS, exclamation points!!!!, etc.
We also appreciate any contributions to support our independent journalism venture.
Thanks, Deborah & Bob

Housing in Wellesley: past, present, and future
January 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
On Thursday, January 14, 7:30pm join a community discussion about housing in Wellesley with:
- Jennifer Raitt, the Director of Planning and Community Development for the Town of Arlington, Massachusetts, and
- Don McCauley, Wellesley’s Planning Director.
Raitt has served local, regional, state, and national housing, community development, and planning organizations and she recently became a Climate Reality Leader with the Climate Reality Project.
The discuss will center around how Wellesley’s zoning helped to created a desirable community, but contributes to Wellesley’s increasing lack of affordability. The town’s values as they relate to housing, and action steps that can be taken to increase diversity will also be discussed.

This event is presented by the League of Women Voters of Wellesley, and the Wellesley Free Library, and is sponsored by Sustainable Wellesley and other organizations.
