Neighbors Support Allandale Defense Fund

Neighbors filled Kelleher's function room to capacity Sunday, January 29 2016 to support the Allandale Defense Fund. A coalition of residents and local organizations are preparing to challenge in court the CIty's zoning approvals for 64 Allandale.

Attorneys costs for this effort can exceed $25,000, but we are determined to bring the 64 Allandale case before the Suffolk County Superior Court for independent review.

As Protecting of natural resources, furthering sustainable, affordable development and upholding neighborhood zoning are interconnected and important issues, the coalition must fundraise to cover attorney costs.

Going into the Sunday event, the coalition has already reach over 30% of our fundraising goal.

We will continue our broad-based, community-wide effort until the defense fund target is reached, mindful that all donations represent individual and household funds that could be alternatively saved or spent on many worthy causes,

This is an all-volunteer effort and all funds raised will be used only for the legal challenge.

Donations are not tax deductible and are separate from any donation to Friends of Allandale Woods.

Many modest individual donations accumulate and will allow us to move forward effectively with the legal challenge.

Future events are planned. Check back often. Sign Up for notices.

In the meantime, checks in any amount are gratefully accepted. Please make out to "FOAW Coalition" and mail to:

J. Lees, Treasurer, 100B Allandale Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

Each and every contribution is valuable.

We thank you for your past and continuing support and participation.
