Over the next few weeks, the Newton City Council will be making final revisions to a proposal that would allow for the creation of smaller, multi-family homes close to village centers and eliminate some of the onerous regulations that have made it hard to open a business here.

And the chamber is partnering with housing and climate advocates, civic leaders and clergy in support of passing the proposed  Village Center Overlay District, which will also allow the city to be in compliance with the state’s MBTA Communities Law.

Our new group, Newton For Everyone, has created a website and is distributing lawn signs to help the public understand the plan and dispel some of the misinformation  that’s been circulating regarding the proposal.

Request a lawn sign or information here.
