Do you have ideas on how the city could improve its local parks and recreation facilities? Do you have thoughts on how Newton can acquire more open space?
The folks at want to hear from you.
An online survey recently launched by the Planning and Development Department looks to gather resident feedback on open space in Newton. Open space includes parks, playgrounds, recreation areas, wetlands, conservation areas and more.
According to a recent memo from the Planning and Development Department, the information from the survey will be used in an updated Newton Recreation and Open Space Plan. The Open Space Plan, which was last updated for 2003-2007, will "develop a vision and set goals and priorities for Newton's open space resources and recreation facilities over the next five years."
The Open Space Plan will also be consistent with the city's Comprehensive Plan.
