Petition opposed subdivision of 21 Touro Street
We are residents of Medford who are opposed to the subdivision and subsequent development of the property at 21 Touro Street. The house on itself is of historic significance as a good example of the "Greek Revival" period during the mid-1800s. We do understand that the current proposal will not include the demolition of the home.
Some of the reasons we are against this proposal: We do not want to see the historical context of the home destroyed. We do not want the density of the neighborhood to be increased more than it already is. We do not want to see mature trees that add much to the street and the neighborhood in general removed. Parking is already at a premium on Touro and adding more housing units will make it worse.
Please include your street name in Medford and comments!
