May business meeting

Our next monthly Eight Streets business meeting will be this Wednesday, May 1st, in the Boston Ballet 5th floor board room (corner of Warren and Clarendon streets)

6:30-7 - Neighborhood Networking.   Meet your neighbors in an informal setting. 
7-8:30 - Business meeting.  

On the agenda this month:
  • 34 Dwight st
  • 53 Dwight st
  • Siena Farms
  • Open Member Discussion

Two construction projects this month.   34 Dwight street seeks to add a rear balcony and a rear shed dormer.  53 Dwight is also seeing to add a rear deck and replace the current rear roof windows with a shed dormer.   Both projects will see our support for these changes.   53 Dwight will also update us on their groundwater plan, which is already approved by the city.

Siena farms is seeking support for a Stationary vending license.   This will allow them to sell produce on the sidewalk, similarly to what they did last year.  they'll also address sidewalk width requirements by the city, and their willingness to help strike a balance between a passable sidewalk and the open air market atmosphere the sidewalk presence gives us.

We will also be having elections at this meeting.   I've had some residents step forward and are willing to fill the vacant officer positions we have in the association.   I'm glad we have some neighbors willing to take on a greater role in the association, and grateful for the added help!!   We'll make it official by having our annual elections this month.

It's a busy meeting, and I hope to see everyone there!     And don't forget to vote in Tuesday's senate primaries!!
