State Senator Mike Rush and State Representatives Ed Coppinger and Jeffrey Sanchez in conjunction with the state Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) are hosting a community meeting specific for Roslindale residents about the proposed DCR plans for the Centre Street corridor from VFW Parkway to Murray Circle, and in particular the Walter/Centre intersection.
Tuesday, Nov. 10
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
St. Nectarios Church Hall, 39 Belgrade Ave, Roslindale
DCR has previously held three meetings on proposals for this stretch of Centre Street, in addition to the Arborway in Jamaica Plain. You can view the presentations from past meetings here. The meeting and presentation materials specific to the Centre Street corridor and Walter Street intersection can be found there under the Oct. 7, 2015 meeting information.
LANA has advocated for years for changes to this intersection and had members present at the prior meetings. In addition to this Nov. 10 meeting, at our normal bimonthly LANA meeting the night prior, Monday, Nov. 9, 7:30 pm at Longfellow House, we’ll be joined by Sen. Rush and Reps. Coppinger and Sanchez to go over these plans and discuss issues around them along with other relevant state issues. We hope you can join us.
