Let Your Voice Be Heard: Upcoming Southwest Corridor Action Plan Meeting at JP Library and Online

Print More

The state would like the community's input on the Southwest Corridor Action Plan, and will host several neighborhood meetings this month.

DCR says that the 4-mile corridor that spans Back Bay, South End, Roxbury, Fenway, Mission Hill, and Jamaica Plain, is due for renewed attention and investment. They're working on "a comprehensive and inclusive master planning process leading to a vision for both short- and long-term investments that renovate and modernize the park while strengthening and supporting the communities it serves."

The corridor runs adjacent to the MBTA Orange Line and encompasses eight different transit stations, community gardens, basketball and tennis courts, a skate park in Jamaica Plain, playgrounds and more.

The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) will be sharing what they've heard from the community so far recording the action plan during a public meeting at the Jamaica Plain Library (30 South St.) on Jan. 18 from 5:30-7:30 pm.

DCR would like the community's help to make design choices to move the project forward.

DCR will also be hosting a virtual open house to discuss the plan on Jan. 23 from 7:30-8:30 pm, which can accessed by this link: https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZAvdeCtqzItG9Fqar-AU1K264cI3c7TMhjN#/registration.
