The Planning Department is kicking off its Newton-in-Motion initiative with a public visioning workshop next week. The Nelson\Nygaard consulting firm, the same firm conducting the Newton Centre Parking Study, will help produce a transportation plan to complement the Comprehensive Plan, Housing Strategy and Sustainability Plan and guide future investments for all modes of transportation.
Open house: Thursday and Friday 10am-7pm; Saturday 9am-12pm at 275 Needham Street (Marshall’s plaza)
Presentations will be at 12pm Thursday, 6pm Friday, and 10am Saturday.
Message from the planning department:
All are encouraged to visit the “Newton-in-Motion” open studio, and take part in visioning the City’s future. This free event, held at 275 Needham Street (Marshall’s plaza) on February 4, 5 and 6, will be fun and interactive and will offer opportunities to discuss goals and priorities for the City’s Transportation Strategy. Activities include a games table, a giant map of the City for sharing ideas, transportation questions, and a chance to talk to City staff and consulting planners, Nelson\Nygaard. Kids are welcome and encouraged to participate! For those unable to attend, the project website will offer the same activities and opportunity for input both during and after the event.
Our mobile team will also be out and about around the City during the February 4th – 6th workshop and we encourage those who come across the team to tell them about their transportation vision for Newton.
