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

No Place Like Home: Attainable, Affordable, Sustainable Housing—In Our Town?
January 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Many young families, seniors, and people of middle, moderate, or fixed incomes are unable to move to — or stay in — our town. What does this mean for Wellesley’s future? Our expert panelists will provide an overview of the challenges and benefits of creating diverse housing. Bring your questions and comments and join us to discuss how we can develop a
broader range of housing choices for the long-term health of our community. Panelists include:
- Eric Shupin, Director of Public Policy, Citizens Housing and Planning Association (CHAPA)—Describing the state of housing in MA.
- Amy Dain, Consultant, Dain Research—Reporting on two years of research into the regulations, plans and permits in the 100 cities and towns surrounding Boston.
- Shelly Goehring, Senior Program Manager, Massachusetts Housing Partnership—Sharing the benefits and challenges for our community.
- Rebecca Winterich-Knox, Net Zero Organizer, Massachusetts Climate Action Network—Focusing on sustainable considerations and impact on climate.
Presented by League of Women Voters of Wellesley and Wellesley Free Library. This event is free and open to the public.
