Washington Street Vision

Next Event:

Draft Plan Open House

October 24, 2018






"Hello Washington Street!" is the City of Newton's initiative to plan proactively the future of Washington Street in a community-based process with residents, local businesses, and City Councilors, with the help of the Principle Group, the planning firm under contract with the City of Newton. The thirteen-month process, started in April 2018 and anticipated to go until May 2019, will result in a vision plan and draft zoning for the areas that link West Newton to Newtonville to Newton Corner.

Get involved - we need your input!
