Current Events & News
Beacon Street Sewer Work, April 2012
The meeting was led by the project consultant engineer, with some comments by Brookline DPW Commissioner Andrew Pappastergion. They established at the outset that the meeting was to discuss this year's work in the Monmouth/Carlton area. A later meeting would be set up to discuss work north of Beacon Street. There may be an additional meeting for the Beacon St. Corridor work. Mitigation and support for Beacon Street businesses affected by the work is being dealt with by the planning staff in separate meetings.

The current design and character of Cottage Farm can be traced to Amos A. Lawrence, his brother William, and the wealthy businessman who sold them 200 acres of land north of Beacon St. in 1850, David Sears. It was Sears who had purchased 500 acres of land for his family and friends in the present day Longwood and Cottage Farm areas when the construction of the Mill Dam Road connected Boston with Brookline in 1821. Sears laid out Mason and Knyvet squares following the European model of houses lining and facing the open spaces.
