Newton adopted its first strategic growth plan in 2015 with the goal of helping Newton City Council, City staff, and residents work together to establish a vision for Newton’s future with concrete objectives to be accomplished over time. In 2019, the City renewed its dedication to strategic planning with bold, new initiatives that reflect and build on the progress being made throughout Newton.
