Free Library Parking Lot Improvements

Working towards the City’s sustainability goals, EP is assisting the City of Newton with the redesign the Free Library parking lot for the primary purposes of increasing high-demand parking and installing solar panel canopies.

In addition to improving ADA-compliance and pedestrian safety with sidewalk, curb, and lighting upgrades, the project also incorporates pervious pavement to help reduce stormwater runoff and an innovative stormwater management system that collects, treats, and infiltrates stormwater generated up to the one-inch storm, reduces peak runoff, and removes Total Suspended Solids, Phosphorus and Nitrogen loads. This system will help the City meet their phosphorus reduction targets set by the MS4 Permit.

Keep an eye out for construction to be complete this Fall!
