BCYF Charlestown Community Center Study

Boston Centers for Youth & Families, the Mayor's Office of Neighborhood Services, and the Public Facilities Department are holding three Community Advisory Committee meetings exploring options for a new community center in Charlestown. 

Meeting one was held on Monday, November 16. At this meeting we discussed the process of exploring options for a new community center in Charlestown. We also introduced the study and the study team.
