City hosts Open Space Plan meetings in Mattapan, Dorchester

Wed, 07/30/2014 - 6:30pm

The City of Boston is preparing a new citywide Open Space Plan for the years 2015 to 2021. As part of this effort, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department developed and launched a survey questionnaire to enable the public to provide input about their park use and preferences.

The Parks Department will be holding a citywide series of public meetings from July 21 to August 14 to discuss the results of the survey. With this information the Parks Department is developing a multi-year integrated plan for open space protection and development. Open space advocates, parents, caregivers, and all users of Boston’s parks are invited to attend these meetings.

Dates and locations are as follows. All meetings begin at 6:30 p.m.
