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 new force to defend and serve our diverse and dynamic neighborhood.
The City of Boston’s Community Preservation Commission approved $400,000 in design and engineering funding for Charlesgate Park improvements on February 11th. It is now up to the City Council and Mayor to approve this recommendation. In conjunction with the $250,000 received in December, this should be enough to get us to a shovel-ready design for the park south of Beacon Street. For more information see this Boston Guardian article.
