Do stuff with and for your neighbors

Dear Neighbors, 

I live on Orchard street in JP and learned from a neighbor tonight that the DCR plans for the "Arborway bike plan" to redesign arborway traffic include some concerning changes that greatly affect our neighborhood.

These include:

  1. Orchard street will have 2 way traffic
  2. Prince street will have 2 way traffic
  3. ALL Moss hill traffic wil be funneled into Parkman drive via left to Prince Street U-turn
  4. Arborway traffic reduced from 4 lanes to 2 lanes
  5. Traffic lights at Prince, Pond & Centre removed

In particular I am concerned about #1 & 2 as I can't imagine this is possible without taking away the on-street parking we rely on, as well as increased traffic and speeding on our small neighborhood street.

If you share these concerns, please provide comments to DCR due by this Friday March 6th by calling at 617-626-4974.

Thank you!

Rebecca Hammond
