DCR extends comment period for parkways improvements

The state Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) has extended the comment period for the three projects it has presented for improving safety and access for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists to the parklands and parkways of the Emerald Necklace in Jamaica Plain.

The deadline is now Nov. 30.

The projects focus on three different areas: Perkins Street and Francis Parkman Drive; Centre Street, from VFW Parkway to Murray Circle; and the Arborway between Eliot Street and South Street, including Kelley Circle and Murray Circle.

DCR held a series of meetings on the projects earlier this fall. The meetings were co-sponsored by the Emerald Necklace Conservancy and state Reps. Jeffrey Sanchez and Liz Malia and state Sens. Sonia Chang-Diaz and Michael Rush.
