For the second year in a row, the North End Beautification Committee funded a Christmas tree and streetlight pole wreathes in the North End for the holiday season. We also held a special tree lighting event at the Christmas tree on the corner of Hanover and Cross Streets.
The North End Beautification Committee is a community-based volunteer organization with a mission to preserve, maintain and enhance the aesthetic integrity of this historic North End neighborhood, with the hope of enriching its beauty through creative and innovative enhancements.
The committee’s future plans are to become a 501(c)3 and create a North End Improvement District that will be a collaboration of residents, businesses and the City of Boston. The mission is not to become a business improvement district but more of a partnership with the business community and the City of Boston to help supplement the services the City already provides. We want all parties involved. The committee is considering membership fees to fund items such as added police details, clean-up and extra neighborhood maintenance.
We look forward to sharing more information in the near future.
