The Needham Town Common will be closed starting Friday, June 24th for major renovations. The project will relocate sidewalks to open up the lawn for gathering and passive recreation, include new lighting, new trees and shaded areas of seating. These improvements are meant to give the community a focal point downtown to come together, enjoy the outdoors, and connect to Needham institutions and businesses around them. The contractor on the project is M.J. Cataldo.
While the project is ongoing, the Common will be CLOSED to the public. In addition, Garrity’s Way, the small one-way street in front of Town Hall will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians in the coming week once construction begins. One handicap accessible entrance to the main entrance of Town Hall will be maintained during the project. The renovation is scheduled to be complete sometime during the 2022-2023 winter season.
