Newton-In-Motion: 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.
There will also be a presentation from consultants Nelson/Nygaard at Noon on Thursday, 6:00pm on Friday, and 10:00am on Saturday. The Friday evening presentation will also include presenters from the Newton Housing Strategy, and MassDOT.
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 them to tell them about their transportation vision for Newton.
