Arlington Town Meeting Upholds Seasonal Leaf-Blower Ban
Arlington Town Meeting members kept the town's seasonal leaf-blower ban in place Wednesday night. Members voted 110-95 against substituting a motion that would have put a repeal of the ban to a vote. The ban, which prohibits the use of gas-powered leaf blowers on private property from May 15 to Oct. 15, has yet to take effect, as it's pending the approval of the state attorney general's office. Town Meeting passed the ban in May in a 95-85 vote. — John Waller

Back Bay Neighborhood Association Opposes Hereford Street Project
The Glynn Family Entities project, at 45-53 Hereford St., consists of renovations to 18 residences and substantial work on other buildings. But, of most concern to the Neighborhood Association of the Back Bay is the new construction of a 10,868 square foot, four-story glass-and-steel addition to the rear of 51-53 Hereford St. The addition would face Newbury Street and be built on open space formed by the current backyards of Hereford Street townhouses. — Kimberly Ashton
