There is a LivableStreets Alliance StreetTalk “How is Boston Completing its Streets?” with Vineet Gupta, Transportation Planning Director, City of Boston on Thursday, February 17, 7-9 PM. (This was originally scheduled for Jan. 12 but rescheduled due to snow.)
@ LivableStreets office, 100 Sidney St, Cambridge MA
Open to the public. $5-$10 suggested donation
From the LivableStreets website: Mayor Menino has told us, “The car is no longer king in Boston.” Is a new wave of urban planning upon us? Boston is ready to put pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users on equal footing with drivers and promote a vision of streets which are safe, attractive and conducive to healthy, active transportation. What would you do to make Boston’s streets more livable, safe and accessible?
In 2003, a coalition of national advocates coined the phrase “Complete Streets” as a way to better communicate the inclusion of bicycles in everyday transportation planning to government officials and the general public. Today, the movement has grown more powerful than just the accommodation of bicycles and has been adopted in more than 200 Complete Streets policies across the U.S, including Boston! See the LivableStreets website for more on this talk.
Come see a presentation of new detailed design options for the FAIRMOUNT GREENWAY planned for Wednesday, October 6th, at 6 PM.
At previous community meetings with the Fairmont CDC Collaborative, local residents determined their preferred routes for the greenway and identified potential locations for development into parks and other open space.
A team from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning is helping to facilitate more detailed design studies of the Fairmont Greenway as it goes through the Dorchester neighborhood.
What will be presented - visions for what certain streets, bike routes, green spaces and intersections might look like. The team would like to hear Dorchester residents’ feedback, ideas and opinions. Please come to this meeting to help further design and plan this Greenway.

On Thursday January 14, 6:30 PM, please attend the Nightingale Community Gardens Community Meeting at the Codman Square Health Center Tech Center, 450 Washington Street (corner of Park Street, across from KFC).
Anyone who is interested in community garden space in Dorchester, especially in the Park Street/Washington Street vicinity, is invited to attend this open community meeting hosted by the Boston Natural Areas Network (BNAN) to discuss proposed renovations at the existing community gardens at 512 Park Street.
This is a huge underutilized green space near Codman Square. BNAN expects the following to be included in the plans for the construction phase:
• Removal of soil contamination and soil remediation
• Replace 10-foot tall fence with more inviting 5-foot tall fence
• Install metered water connection and spigots
• Remove or prune many of the trees in the garden
• Re-grade the garden
• Lay out and build new plots, including raised beds, to accommodate many more additional gardeners
• Establish new and level garden paths
• Build a common area for social gathering, meetings and community events
There will be a significant increase in the number of garden plots available.
