City to host meeting on Centre/South improvement project

The City will be hosting a community meeting on the Centre/South streets improvement project May 14 at Curtis Hall.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m.

The improvement project will be based off the Centre and South Streets Streetscape and Transportation Action Plan, which was a process that began in 2009. The improvement project, which would make sidewalks and crosswalks more pedestrian-friendly, improve traffic flow, and add green space, would stretch along Centre Street from Jackson Square to Hyde Square to Monument Square, then down South Street to Forest Hills.

The Hyde Square renovation, which is one phase of the overall project, was completed last year.

“This is something that I, as chair of the JPNC, Mel Tutiven (JP BAPA), Michael Epp (Sumner Hill Association), Rosemary Jones (Jamaica Pond Association), and Michael Reiskind (Centre/South Main Streets, have been working on for some years now,” said Kevin Moloney. “We were told last fall that there is some money that can be made available to start the design process and I am very pleased that this project is about to get going.”
