Did you know that the Traffic Council voted to change many 1-hour parking meters to 2-hour parking meters to better accommodate those shopping, dining, and visiting Newton Centre, and that some 2-hour parking meters were changed to 12-hour parking meters to better accommodate the long-term parking needs of employees?

Community Development Projects

Newton Centre Playground Pathway – 2006 to present

This ongoing project has been composed of six phases to implement the Master Plan for the Newton Centre Playground and Park. The project began with the installation of the three handicap parking spaces, including one for a van, at the Mason-Rice School. An additional phase of the project was funded with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding, the project involved the installation of an accessible parking space and several accessible paths.  The design and approval process is underway for two additional paths, one from the basketball court to the water fountain at the tennis courts and another connecting that bubbler to Centre Street.  These two phases will be completed in summer 2014. 

City Hall - War Memorial Vertical and Acoustical Access – 2013

The City is currently working with the Public Buildings Department to conduct a feasibility study for the installation of an elevator to provide access to people with mobility disabilities to the War Memorial.  The study also involves improving the acoustics in the room to make it more accessible to people with hearing disabilities.
