City Councilor At-Large Michelle Wu has been hosting a series of City Council neighborhood hearings and community forums on the topic of licensing and permitting with an aim toward more fully understanding the needs of small businesses and entrepreneurs. The ultimate goal is applying what is learned at these meetings and using it as guidance for streamlining city processes.
Allston/Brighton’s community forum is coming up on Tuesday April 22, 2014 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm at Jackson-Mann Community Center, 500 Cambridge Street Allston, MA 02134.
See the press release here for more details.
Now that the CSX rail yard is no longer in use, Mass DOT is planning to straighten the section of I-90 that bends around the rail yard as it cuts through Allston. This massive project will impact our comunity during the 5-7 year period that the project is underway and for many years beyond.
Now is the time to influence the design of the project, so that the end result (and the construction processs) is something that works for this community.
To that end, we encourage everyone to attend the first public meeting TONIGHT 4/10/14 at the Jackson Mann Community Center Auditorium, 500 Cambridge Street Allston at 6:30pm.
