Project Goals

The site is 26,906 sq. ft. of vacant land on Melnea Cass Blvd/Windsor Street near the South End/Roxbury border. There is community interest in the permanent preservation of these two parcels as open space including continued use as a community garden. A community meeting was held in 2020 and support for this preservation was strong. An RFP is expected to be issued in 2021.
