Your parks need your voice!
The BRA will be making a crucial decision about the proposed residential development at 171-172 Tremont Street.
This project, as it is currently proposed, will exceed existing zoning laws protecting Boston Common from excessive shadow and wind.
Parks greatly improve the quality of city life and build community. The time is now to share your voice on their behalf.
The BRA will be making a crucial decision about the proposed residential development at 171-172 Tremont Street. As it is currently proposed, the project will exceed current protective zoning and set a harmful precedent by opening the door for more development exceeding the height limit in the mid-town area bordering Boston Common and the Public Garden.
From the 1970’s, the Friends of the Public Garden has continuously advocated for protecting the Common from excessive shadow and wind resulting from development projects that would have a damaging impact on this vital and heavily used historic urban park.
We advocate for compliance with both the 1990 Shadow Law and Boston’s zoning code’s provisions protecting the Common as well as the Public Garden.
