Public meeting planned for Newton Highlands village enhancement project

The city of Newton plans to host a public meeting for a project to improve the safety and accessibility of roads and sidewalks in Newton Highlands.

The project includes the intersection of Walnut and Lincoln streets near Route 9, along with sections of Station Avenue, as well as Centre, Floral, and Hartford streets, according to a statement.
