Waban Area Council Survey September 2023
1. Village Center Rezoning
WHO WE ARE
The Waban Area Council (WAC) serves as a communication link between residents, businesses, and the City Council. The WAC is a 9-member elected body. Three other villages have established Area Councils (Newtonville, Newton Highlands, and Newton Upper Falls).
WHY WE SURVEY
We conduct and publish surveys on issues like zoning, quality of life, and social opportunities, to share community opinions with the City Council. We strive to emphasize the importance of residents' voices in city decisions.
The purpose of this survey is to collect input from Waban/Newton residents and business owners about Village Center Rezoning as it relates to Waban. We have constructed the survey to be as informative and as objective as possible.
The survey results will be assembled, analyzed, and published. It will be shared with the Zoning and Planning Committee (ZAP), the City Council, and the Mayor through proper public channels. We will also share the results through our WAC email list and website.
We thank you in advance for your participation.
This survey is for Newton residents or business owners 18 or older. The questions help us understand who is participating in this survey.
