Report concerns of road and sidewalk conditions on the Newton MA 311 app.

See details below.
“Newton MA 311” is the the City of Newton’s app for your mobile phone and allows you to report concerns immediately, pinpoint the exact location, and include a photo. You can report anonymously or with contact information so you can track the progress of the report. In addition to sidewalk repairs, sign and traffic signal problems, and brush covering the sidewalk, there are 14 categories for reporting snow concerns, including sidewalks that are not cleared. You can still continue to call the city at 617-796-1000 and report concerns on their website. We encourage you to report a problem even if someone else already has, as the volume of reports draws the city’s attention to the problem.

Please contact us at with your obstacles to walking to school as well so we can help address the concern. Additionally, please shovel your sidewalk and encourage your neighbors to shovel theirs so children can walk safely to school through the winter.
