64 Homer Street Presentation at HVNA Meeting

GrowBoston staff provided an update on the community engagement process to date for the City-owned parcel at 64 Homer Street. Staff have heard feedback from community members that they would like the lot to be preserved as open space, either for sale for private use or for community use as a community garden or urban farm. Staff conducted an informal poll of meeting attendees about their support for use of the lot for public or private uses. 8 participants supported using the lot for urban agriculture with regular public access. 17 participants supported making the lot available for sale to individuals for private open space use. GrowBoston staff will follow-up at a future HVNA meeting to discuss next steps.
