Residents help to develop Point goals

Continue reading below

Residents of the Point are invited to offer their views on the future of the neighborhood. The city is holding a Point Neighborhood Visioning Workshop Thursday from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Immaculate Conception Parish auditorium, 15 Hawthorne Blvd. The session is part of an ongoing planning process for the Point that includes developing a vision statement and an action plan to promote growth and development in the neighborhood. The city is partnering with the North Shore Community Development Coalition and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council on the initiative. The Point is generally considered the roughly 20-square-block area from Lafayette Street south to the Shetland Mills office complex, and Leavitt Street east to the South River. The program also included the launching of “What’s the Point,” a social media planning game that lets community members electronically interact with one another to contribute ideas toward shaping the future of the neighborhood. Several game meet-up events have been held. A Neighborhood Action Planning Workshop will be held in May. Those planning to attend the March 7 meeting are encouraged to preregister by calling Jackie Giordano at the North Shore Community Development Coalition, 978-825-4016, or by e-mail at jackie@northshorecdc.org.
