Vaz, Richard Francis
Newton Planning and Development Department
We helped the Planning and Development Department of Newton, MA in identifying policy modifications that will better promote green buildings and reduce negative impacts on the environment. We investigated the best practices of green cities across the country and found that each city uses different combinations of zoning and building regulations, incentive programs, and policies for municipal structures to advance green building. We recommended that Newton modify its policy to incorporate incentives to supplement the existing green building regulations.
