Increasing the Availability and Quality of Services

Newton residents benefit from public services such as libraries and trash collection, as well as private-sector services like grocery stores, movie theatres, and cell phone reception. We propose the following initiatives to improve the quality and responsiveness of services valued by our community:

1) Measure public satisfaction and priorities;

2) Support village-based initiatives; and

3) Modernize zoning and work with the business community to encourage private-sector services desired by Newton residents.
