To kick-off the upcoming Centre/Hyde/Jackson Design Projects, the Boston Transportation Department is hosting a community meeting to encourage the participation of Jamaica Plain neighborhood residents and business representatives. The meeting will be held at the Hennigan Community Center, 200 Heath Street, Jamaica Plain, on Monday, April 28, from 6 to 8:30 PM.
The Centre/Hyde/Jackson Design Projects are a part of the larger Centre and South Streets Streetscape and Transportation Action Plan developed in 2010. The Action Plan proposes a vision to sustain and enhance Centre and South Streets’ unique identity and details streetscape guidelines for planning future projects.
The April 28th meeting will discuss designs proposed in the Action Plan that take into consideration issues such as sidewalk size, crosswalks, landscaping and traffic along Centre and South Streets. Vineet Gupta, BTD’s Director of Policy and Planning, will conduct the meeting along with BTD Project Manager Rachel Szakmary, Jamaica Plain Mayor’s office of Neighborhood Services Coordinator Julieanne Doherty, and the city’s design consultants.
All Jamaica Plain residents and business owners are urged to attend.
