Council passes Newton’s Future, discusses winter parking
Although Newton’s Future Comprehensive Plan, the recently-completed comprehensive plan for the City of Newton, passed by unanimous vote at Monday night’s city council meeting, it may take councilors weeks or even months to pore over the plan in detail and make any necessary amendments before fully implementing its provisions.
Because action must be taken by the council in terms of the plan by mid-November in order to meet grant requirements, the plan was the main item on the agenda last night, spurring further explanation of the project’s timeline by Bryan Friedman, Newton’s community development director.
“I know I’ve spent some time this week mulling through the comprehensive plan ... so I know the council probably hasn’t had a lot of time to go through an in-depth review of the plan,” said Mike Hansen, mayor pro tempore. “In the council report, it also said that the staff understood that this process may be extended to another council meeting if the council should decide to do that.”
