The turnout at the Community meeting on February 27th was amazing! We received tons of feedback on the various sites, general comments, and potential names for the facility. As we are continuing to review and evaluate potential sites, we would love to collect more feedback. 

Site information is posted here.

Comments on any of these sites can be shared with the project team directly, via the “Contact” tab or by email at

We look forward to continue to collaborate with members of the community as we move toward finding the best location for NewCAL. 

Thank you!

Community meetings are opportunities for residents to hear directly from, and speak to, the project team. These meetings will be used to update interested parties, solicit feedback, and listen to the community.

In addition to the Community and Committee/Commission meetings, residents are welcome to join a “Chat with the Commissioner” every other Friday morning at the Newton Senior Center from 8am to 10am. This will be an opportunity for residents to speak directly with the Public Buildings Commissioner regarding the NewCAL project.
