Following a meeting of the Chestnut Hill Community Association’s Development Review Committee on Oct. 15, in which a number of near neighbors voiced their opposition, the John Jay Institute has decided that it will not pursue a plan to buy and move into a home at 9002 Crefeld St., known as Copperwood.

CHCA Community Manager Celeste Hardester told the Local that the institute has called her to say it was no longer going to pursue a variance to move into the space. The institute did not return calls from the Local seeking comment.
