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 https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/austinstreet.
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.
