Together with the BPRW team, consultants at Agency Landscape + Planning led the first (of three) public workshops to engage the community in providing feedback on Perkins Pier. Over 100 individuals signed up and attended to hear the summary of background information and analysis conducted so far by Agency, and to also ask questions, offer insight into the use of Perkins Pier, as well as thoughts on what should change. If you missed it and want to review what was discussed – there are several options available below, including a full meeting recording by Town Meeting TV-Channel 17. Our Parks Project Coordinate, Jon Adams-Kollitz was also interviewed about the site and project prior to the meeting.
In late March, BPRW’s working group and Agency met to kick off the design portion of the siting study.
