Vote Yes on Article 29

Brookline’s commercial areas are made up of 3 basic groups, national chains, franchise and dealer owned operations, and independent businesses. Many affectionately refer to Independent, local stores as “mom and pops”.

Warrant article 29, which will be considered by Town Meeting in May, celebrates the contributions, resiliency, and heart of our local independent businesses. It’s also about encouraging the Town of Brookline to spend more of your hard-earned tax money locally, so your money can stay local.

2nd Annual "Dancing with the Brookline Stars" Nov. 8 at Our Lady of Annunciation Church

2nd Annual
