IMAGINE BOSTON 2030 TO HOST ENGAGEMENT EVENT TO ENCOURAGE FEEDBACK ON LAST DRAFT OF PLAN
BOSTON - Tuesday, June 6, 2017 - On Thursday, Imagine Boston 2030 will host an engagement event at the Franklin Park Golf Course Clubhouse for members of the community and residents to share ideas on the future of Columbia Road and Franklin Park, key initiatives included in the last draft of the Imagine Boston 2030 plan, which was released in mid-May. The release of the plan also served as the kick-off for a month-long comment period for the plan, which will conclude on Monday, June 19 before the final Imagine Boston plan is released in the summer of 2017. The event is free and open to the public, and advanced registration is encouraged.
