Share your vision for Newton with 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.

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.

A message about tomorrow’s election from Alderman Lisle Baker

Dear friends:

I concur with what Ruthanne has recommended about the contested races for Aldermen and School Committee except that I would add current Alderman Jim Cote to the list from Ward 3. Also, for the Charter Commission, while there are many able candidates, I especially recommend Anne Larner, Brooke Lipsitt and George Mansfield because of their long experience with Newton government. Finally, while your Ward 7 aldermen are unopposed – (Ruthanne, Marc Laredo, and me at the end of the ballot) – we also welcome your support. In the meantime, thank you and best wishes,

Alderman Lisle Baker
