The preferred redesign plan for Joyce Playground will be chosen this Saturday, March 11 at a 3 PM community meeting at the park. If the weather turns more March-like, the gathering will adjourn to the District 14 police station. Boston.com story here, and a previous post here.
Harvard wants the school’s Allston Education Portal, which provides educational services for about one hundred local children as well as programming for adults, to stay where it is. Neighbors would rather it be moved to allow for a better overall use of the site. McDonald’s was able to rebuild their Western Avenue restaurant pretty fast, Harvard ought to be able to move their center into another location without too much disruption.
