IMPROVED MULTI-MODAL SAFETY & ACCESS TO EMERALD NECKLACE PARKS IN JAMAICA PLAIN

The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and the Emerald Necklace Conservancy (ENC) recently hosted a series of three public meetings to engage area residents and stakeholders in addressing issues around improved safety and access to the parklands of the Emerald Necklace in Jamaica Plain, while reinforcing the parklands’ historic character.  At these public meetings, DCR and the ENC presented and obtained feedback on options for improved safety and accessibility for all users - pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists - at three key areas of concern:

  • The Arborway, between Eliot Street and South Street, including Kelly Circle and Murray Circle.

  • Perkins Street and Parkman Drive

  • Centre Street from the VFW Parkway to Murray Circle


The presentations made at these meetings are available for viewing on DCR’s website at http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/dcr/public-outreach/public-meetings/.

The public is invited to submit comments regarding the respective meeting’s topic online at http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/dcr/public-outreach/submit-public-comments/ or by writing to the Department of Conservation and Recreation, Office of Public Outreach, 251 Causeway Street, Suite 600, Boston, MA 02114.  PLEASE NOTE:  The public comment deadline for each of the three projects has been extended to the close of business on Monday, November 30, 2015. 

If you have questions or would like to be added to an email list to receive DCR general or project-specific announcements, please email mass.parks@state.ma.us or call 617-626-4973.
