The Earl Newhouse Waterfront Park and Reservoir Pond are community assets that should be showcased as an important resource. The existing 12-acre site is Town-owned and provides primary public access to Reservoir Pond which is approximately 255 acres in size.

The Earl Newhouse Waterfront Master Plan project will develop a comprehensive plan for improving the Earl Newhouse Park at Reservoir Pond in a transparent, well-thought out, and coordinated way. The Master Plan will provide the Town of Canton and the community clarity to fulfill the potential of this parcel, and will increase public awareness, use, and access to the site. The plans and documents prepared will be used to prepare grant applications for landscape and facility improvements at the Earl Newhouse Waterfront.

We have created this survey to gain additional information from community members who would like to provide input on the design for the waterfront parcel. We will also be hosting a series of community meetings to discuss the project and the community's desires for the property. Please remember, when responding to this questionnaire, that these questions are concerning the Earl Newhouse property only, not the whole of Reservoir Pond.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact: Cynthia O’Connell, Canton Conservation Agent at: coconnell@town.canton.ma.us

Thank you for participating in our survey. Your input is very important to this process.
