A public forum, “The Future of Transportation in Newton,” organized by the LWV Newton, will explore how the City can grow and develop without more gridlock and parking woes. Presenters Stephanie Pollack, chair of the mayor’s Transportation Advisory Committee, Eric Bourassa, transportation manager for the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, and Jacqueline Douglas, director of Livable Streets, will examine the findings of studies on Routes 128 and 9, the year-long study by the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC), as well as transportation models that seek to balance the needs of all modes of transportation, including: pedestrians, bikes, cars and public transportation.
Join us on Tuesday November 29, at 7:00pm, at the Newton Free Library’s Druker Auditorium, 330 Homer Street, Newton Centre.
Co-sponsors with LWVN are: Green Decade, Newton Free Library, Newton Conservators, Newton Villages, Newton Safe Routes to School, Bike Newton, Newton Bicycle & Pedestrian Task Force, Newton Economic Development Commission, Citizens for Access, Newton TAB, Newton Senior Center, Newton at Home, Newton Disabilities Commission, Newton-Needham Chamber of Commerce, NewTV, and the Leagues of Women Voters of Weston, Needham and Wellesley.
