The Rose F. Kennedy Greenway Conservancy presented at the October 23, 2013 Downtown Waterfront Municipal Harbor Planning Advisory Committee Meeting at City Hall. Speaking on behalf of the Conservancy was COO and Acting Executive Director Jesse Brackenbury and Director of Planning & Design, Linda Jonash.
The Greenway Conservancy is the non-profit operator of the Rose Kennedy Greenway Parks that traverse much of the Downtown Waterfront planning zone under review.
In addition to reviewing recent projects (carousel, mural), events and organic horticulture on the Greenway, the Conservancy discussed opportunities to utilize streets and sidewalks along the edges of the waterfront. A mix of passive and active spaces was noted along with temporary experiments in public art and food trucks. An emphasis on infrastructure was presented, including electricity and water. Questions also were asked regarding increasing traffic issues as more development occurs along the Greenway and planning zone.
