Abstract

The goal of this project, sponsored by Newton's Planning and Development Department and League of Women Voters, was to recommend improvements for greater pedestrian mobility in four of Newton's villages. We identified challenges facing mobility and the opportunities for increasing mobility in each area by assessing conditions, observing pedestrians, and interviewing residents. We present recommendations for improving conditions of facilities including sidewalks, crossings and signals, in each area and for the city as a whole.
