Express your ideas about the Austin St. Development

The Newtonville Area Council is launching an anonymous online Austin St. Survey  to express your opinion on  the proposed Austin St. parking lot development.  The link is here

 Why – We are gathering information from Newtonville businesses and residents to inform the city’s choice of developer as well as to inform their negotiations.
 Who – We encourage everyone to take this survey if you are a Newtonville resident, age 14 or older, or a Newtonville business or property owner.
 When –  We hope to collect 1000 respondents by the Feb. 15th deadline.
The city has requested proposals from developers to build a mixed-use development on the Austin St. parking lot, across from Shaws.  This proposed development will include first floor commercial space, mixed-income residential space, public parking and private parking.   The city has received six proposals and expects to start negotiating with one of the developers by the end of February.
