City to hold 3rd meeting on Centre/South redesign

The City will hold a third meeting on the Jamaica Plain/South/Hyde/Jackson Design Projects on Sept. 29 at the Kennedy Elementary School. The meeting will cover further discussion of the Hyde Square redesign and other sections of the project.

The Jamaica Plain/South/Hyde/Jackson Design Projects will stretch along Centre Street from Jackson Square to Hyde Square to Monument Square, and down South Street to Forest Hills.

The project is intended to make sidewalks and crosswalks more pedestrian-friendly, improve traffic flow and add green space. A facelift at Monument Square, which was included in earlier phases of the redesign project, might not happen, as the City revealed during a previous meeting.

Jamaica Plain/South/Hyde/Jackson Design Projects is part of the Centre and South Streets Streetscape and Transportation Action Plan that developed general guidelines for the look and feel of the Centre/South corridor, and aimed to fix some specific traffic trouble spots. The planning first began in 2009. For more information, visit
