New CSHCA Committee Forming

The Columbia Savin Hill Civic Association is forming a new committee to address our desires for potential development sites. While our current Planning Committee responds to individual development proposals, the new committee will help create the community’s interests in sites that have obvious development potential. The goal is to help inform developers what uses would receive  community support.
Some examples include Morrissey Blvd, Mt Vernon St, Glovers Corner and several sites on Dorchester Ave. You may have other sites to offer.
The new committee will meet on Wednesday, November 15th, at 7:00 pm at the basement of Savin Bar and Kitchen on Savin Hill Ave. You are invited (and invite anyone you feel appropriate).
