Downtown Restroom Feasibility

The Downtown Restroom Feasibility Team undertook one of the most challenging projects a DIY Lowell Project Team has tackled: to either demonstrate or advocate for a public restroom in downtown Lowell, providing dignity for the unhoused and an amenity for tourists. They conducted interviews with other towns, inventoried current restrooms, completed a survey of the unhoused population, and discussed the issue with nonprofit and city officials.

The highlights of their research were put into the following presentation. For more information, or to comment on the idea, email
