Project Contact:



The Needham Street area is a key gateway to the City of Newton. The area has been and is currently the subject of private development efforts. While many efforts have occurred over the years to study and plan for this area, this work has not coalesced into a broadly shared single vision and strategy as a whole. A clear vision for the area will assist the City in evaluating future plans for the area. Therefore, the City of Newton, led by the Planning and Development Department, is now seeking to engage the broader community in informing the development of a vision plan for the Needham Street Area to be adopted into the City’s Comprehensive Plan.

Apply by November 19, 2017 to join the Community Engagement Group. Preference will be given to applicants who reside in the Community Engagement Boundary Area
