Washington Street Vision
See the Snapshot of Public Design Week
Hello Washington Street,
Over the summer the planning team is hard at work processing all the information developed and ideas we heard from you throughout Public Design Week. Thank you for sharing your thoughts for Washington Street at the pop-up workspace at 1239 Washington Street, by responding to the surveys, and giving us the thumbs-up on our chili at the chili cook-off!

We have put together a Snapshot document that presents a summary of what took place and a sample of scenarios that were studied and discussed. To read all the slides and watch videos of all the presentations, go to our website.

What's Next?

Looking ahead to the fall, please save the date for Wednesday, October 24, 2018 , our Plan Open House. At this event (specific evening time and location tba) we will present a draft vision plan and draft zoning. Most importantly - we will be asking more questions and getting your feedback to refine future drafts over the winter and into 2019.

Also, the planning team is continuing to provide monthly updates about "Hello Washington Street!" to the Zoning and Planning Committee of City Council. The next update is Monday, July 30, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall, Room 205. All are welcome to attend and observe.
This Saturday*:
Pop-Up Planning @ West Newton Farmers Market
This coming Saturday, July 28, 2018 you can find us at the West Newton Farmers Market on Elm Street. *In the case of rain, we will reschedule to a Saturday in August.
