While the no-growth advocacy group, Newton Villages Alliance, seems to be focusing current efforts on its new blog and speaker series, a new advocacy group — springing from the Friends of Austin Street — is making its debut.
Kathleen Hobson introduces the thinking behind ‘Livable Newton’ in a TAB op-ed column:
We value a Newton that is accessible, affordable, diverse, integrated, and environmentally responsible. We want a city that works for everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, faith, ability, sexual orientation, economic circumstance, or national origin. We want a welcoming, sustainable, livable Newton.
