Central Square Re-design Meeting set for March 9

The East Boston community will see $4 million spent on re-designing Central Square. The community input process begins March 9th at 6PM at the East Boston Social Center, 68 Central Square.

The Boston Transportation Department wants your input on creating a new design for the streets and sidewalks. The initial plan is to extend the sidewalks to increase pedestrian safety and allow for outdoor seating for restaurants; expand the park and green space in the square; and rationalize (the currently irrational) traffic patterns.

Please contact Charlotte Fleetwood, Transportation Planner at 617-635-2462 with any questions (or Ernani DeAraujo at 617-635-3485).
