The Charlesgate Alliance launched on January 24th, 2017, to bring positive change to the Charlesgate neighborhood. We look forward to working with you! We are dedicated to improving Charlesgate and to knitting together the Charlesgate district. We promise to become an effective force to defend and serve our diverse and dynamic neighborhood.
Here is a July 2022 piece on Chronicle about the project, featuring our architects, Dan and Marie Law Adams of Landing Studio and Parker James, co-founder of the Charlesgate Allliance.
We had a great Muddy River cleanup at Charlesgate on Earth Day, April 22nd.
Read the letter to Governor Baker written by Karen Mauney-Brodek, Pam Beale and Parker James, sent on November 11, 2020 to advocate for the Charlesgate area. 33 organizations signed on to support the letter. Also attached is Mayor Walsh’s October 21, 2020 letter to the Governor.
The City of Boston made a video with one of our co-founders, Pam Beale, as a result of the Alliance being awarded CPA money in 2019. Parker James is the other co-founder.
See our Achievements page for details on the CPA grant.
