No Parking? A League of Women Voters Forum
Come to the Newton Free Library for a forum conducted by The League of Women Voters of Newton (LWVN) titled No Parking? where they will explore the world of parking management, technology and economics.
Find out: if parking policy helps or hurts a business district; what effect parking policy has on traffic and safety; and what are Newton’s parking rules and where do they apply?
Guest speakers will include:
- Jason Schrieber, Principal at the transportation planning firm Nelson/Nygaard who has developed parking management plans across the country, most recently for Needham and Salem, MA
- Candace Havens, Planning and Development Director for the City of Newton who will outline Newton's current parking practices and the results of trial experiments with parking policy
- Matt Cuddy, Chair, Transportation Advisory Committee Parking Subcommittee who will explain the TAC's parking recommendations
