Proposal to Build 5-Unit Development at 71 South St.

There is currently a proposal to develop a  a five-unit condo development at 71 South St. in the space that is currently a two-family Victorian. This dense development in JP is a concern outlined in this article from the JP Gazette. If you want to weigh in on the issue, there is a public hearing with the Board of Appeals which will decide whether the zoning variance will be approved or not. Page…See More

"Gross. Thanks for sharing, Susan. That type of organization should be illegal. And they certainly won't get my money!"

Quinn replied to Brett's discussion Break-ins on Jamaica Street in the group JP South Neighborhood
"Thanks for sharing this, Brett. I'll be extra vigilant about looking out for my neighbors and hope they do the same for me. Anyone want to make some flyers? I'd do it if I wasn't three deep in essays. "

Quinn replied to Jesse Valente's discussion Mugging on Boylston...
"Let's look out for ourselves AND our neighbors by being aware of our own surroundings when we're walking and also making thieves know that they won't get away with that garbage in our neighborhood. Last year there was a spate of…"

Quinn replied to April Barton's discussion Did anyone's car get egged this weekend?
"It's not just poor shoveling that's the problem though. On my street, it's tough to find a spot in the summer. Really, the city needs to draft a letter informing people not to save spaces (i.e. dump crap in the street), and it needs…"

Quinn commented on Matt's blog post Snow & Parking Wars
"You pick your battles. You don't know the first thing about me, or how good of a neighbor I am. I helped multiple neighbors dig out over these past storms, helped them get out of "their" spots and actively seek to improve my community…"

Car Break-in on Jamaica Street, and what is happening to my (formerly?) beloved neighborhood?

Posted on October 26, 2010 at 1:58pm 5 Comments

Last night, my girlfriend's car got broken into on Jamaica Street. Jamaica is a quiet, one-way street off of South Street which is generally peaceful and family oriented. The thieves broke in by manipulating the driver's (street) side window so it came off its track and rummaged around but didn't find anything worth stealing. The car is a 1994 Honda Civic sh*tbox that obviously didn't have anything valuable in it. Perhaps they wanted to steal the vehicle for parts, but she had an ignition… Continue

48 bus

Hello neighbors,

I just read a post in the JP Gazette that said that "community activists" are working to keep the 48 route running. I live in this community and find this route to be a complete nuisance. First of all, it runs a superfluous route that is already serviced by the Orange Line and 39 bus. Secondly, it is a terrible waste of resources. I have lived on/just off… Continue

Hi Quinn!

Thanks for joining JP Volunteers! It's how stuff gets done!

Would you be available on the 3rd to hang at the NFN table for the Wake Up the Earth Festival? Someone is needed to for the time slots of 12-1 and 4- 5:00. Would you be able to help out at one of those times?
I can be reached at stacylcarpenter@gmail.com.

Thanks!

I have asked for a response from you for over a week. Your making
me feel like an idiot, either your in or your out. Make a choice already,
either quit the group or communicate. I find that extremely irritating.
