The Commission promotes, assists, and encourages existing and new business, industry, and commerce in Newton and advises and makes recommendations to City officials and staff. The Commission usually meets at 6:30 pm on the second Tuesday of each month in Room 204 of City Hall, and meetings are open to the public.
