MAYOR WALSH JOINS BOSTON COLLEGE TO GIVE NEARLY $450,000 TO HELP ENHANCE PARKS, SERVICES AND SAFETY IN BRIGHTON
BOSTON - Friday, January 15, 2016 - Mayor Martin J. Walsh today joins Boston College President William Leahy, S.J. at a ceremony on the University's Chestnut Hill campus to award Neighborhood Improvement Fund Grant checks to six organizations. It's part of the schools's support for physical improvements that are available to the residents of Allston-Brighton. The $2.5 million Fund was established as part of the community benefits package under the University's Institutional Master Plan. It targets projects where public sources of funding may be unavailable or inadequate.
A Medal of Honor monument, bike share stations, and improvements to parks are just some of the enhancements on the way for the Allston-Brighton residents thanks to neighborhood grants being given today by Boston College and the City of Boston totaling almost $450,000
