Why Care About Housing?

Because housing in Newton impacts our city’s ability to be more sustainable, affordable and equitable – and more.


& Climate

Allowing more families the opportunity to live in Newton by building more homes near transit is a critical step to addressing climate change.
By increasing Newton’s housing supply at a range of price points, we can make our city a more diverse, inclusive, and welcoming place to live.

Building more housing is an investment in the future of Newton.

With Newton’s many villages, we have great potential for making our community more walkable and climate friendly.

At the heart of our work is connecting the current trends in data to the future of our community.

Why change the zoning? What about affordability and sustainability?
