We are submitting this petition on behalf of residents of Waltham and friends of Prospect Hill Park who are concerned about the plan to extend Prospect Hill Road which will be considered by the Waltham Board of Survey and Planning at their meeting on Wednesday, October 6th. 

This plan is being submitted in order to develop five acres of land that abuts Prospect Hill Park.  There is currently no access to the parcel via public road.  The land has remained undeveloped for decades, offering access to Prospect Hill Park trails to all residents of our community. 

Development of this property would both block access to trails used by residents and visitors to Waltham and negatively impact residents who live in both the Highlands and Lanes neighborhoods.

It is our understanding that in 2017 the City of Waltham approached property owners about the City purchasing the property in order to establish an entrance to the park and trails.  

As concerned residents of Waltham, and friends of Prospect Hill Park, we urge the Waltham Board of Survey and Planning to reject the petition to extend Prospect Hill Road and ask the City of Waltham to pursue an agreement to purchase the property in order to expand Prospect Hill Park.
