The private liberal arts school recently bought an Arlington Street building.
Neighborhood concerns are mounting over Fisher College's possible expansion plans in the Back Bay after the liberal arts college bought an Arlington Street building and sketches out plans to grow over the next decade. "Things have shifted from how do we work this out, to how do we stop them,"Peter Sherin, a director at the Neighborhood Association of the Back Bay, told the Boston Herald.

Some neighborhoods are challenging Fisher's plans to use Beacon Street building for classrooms or dorms, and a Boston Redevelopment Authority task force is planning to meet March 28 to discuss the issue, the Herald reports.

The small private institution on Beacon Street in Back Bay has found a way to alleviate student - and neighborhood - concerns about the dreaded Sept. 1st move in day.
September 1st in Boston is as infamous a day as Marathon Monday, except for all the wrong reasons. On the day when 70,000 students head back to school, you've got frustrated students, parents and neighbors, double parked cars, deadlocked traffic, and moving boxes all competing for space on the city's roads and sidewalks.
