The Boston Main Streets Foundation and JP Centre/South Main Streets have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise $5,000 by September 30 to bring a new lighting display to the neighborhood this holiday and year-round.
"The community's identity is as distinctive as any other neighborhood in Boston, but the district’s holiday displays have suffered from lack of funding, locations, manpower, and storage," said a press release from JP Centre/South Main Streets (JPCSMS).
But JPCSMS wants to do state-of-the-art light displays, and if the community raises $5,000, it will be matched with a grant from the Boston Main Street Foundation (BMSF).

“The holidays are a joyous time to reflect on the idea of community. Businesses and residents together can build that sense of place, especially because we have residents who care and prioritize shopping local and small. We have been searching for so long for the right way to showcase that to the rest of Boston,” said Ginger Brown, Executive Director of JP Centre/South Main Streets. “This lighting program will be the culmination of that community pride and love that makes Jamaica Plain such a great place to live and work.”
