This past Sunday’s public presentation on the Boston Planning & Development Agency’s “Squares + Streets” planning and zoning was carried off expertly by Taylor Mayes, Abdul-Rafik Zachariah, and Lydia Hausle. We had about 40 folks on hand and there was plenty of discussing and hanging around afterward. You are welcome to review the full slide show from the presentation (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3), along with a Squares + Streets Glossary for reference.

As part of the planned improvements for managing parking in Roslindale Village, the City is holding a hearing this Thursday, December 7, 2023, at 11am on Zoom, to discuss the possibility of a parking benefit district (“PBD”). We urged the City to consider implementing a PBD in our original comments on the parking changes and are pleased to see progress on this front. A PBD would direct funds from local parking meters to physical improvements and beautification projects in the square. We encourage supporters to attend and support this pilot initiative.
