The City of Newton will be conducted a community attitude survey during the month of February which measured resident opinion across a variety of indicators of community liability. The survey was completed by 608 residents.
The survey will be used to help the City of Newton in updating Newton’s Future: A Comprehensive Plan, which was adopted in October 2012 and last updated in October 2014. A community’s comprehensive plan serves multiple purposes. First, it provides an essential legal basis for land use regulations. Secondly, it presents a unified and compelling vision for Newton’s future and sets forth actions to fulfill that vision. The comprehensive plan is evaluated and updated every two years so that the City of Newton continues to work toward achieving goals that reflect the vision and desires of the community.
