The City Hall reports section of this week’s NEWRA meeting held some notable tidbits, as announced by Neighborhood Coordinator, Nicole Leo.
As part of Boston Shines this Saturday, the Public Works department will be powerwashing the sidewalks on Hanover and Salem Street. This will fulfill a campaign promise from Mayor Marty Walsh, an action supported by lifelong North End resident and special assistant to the Mayor, Stephen Passacantilli.
Starting May 13th, the trees will be pruned on Hanover Street AND the (mostly dead) lights will be removed from the branches. The work will be done on street cleaning days over the next few weeks. In the future, the City intends to allow only small LED lights on the trunks of trees.
It was also noted that the pocket park at Bartlett Place, off Salem Street, is now complete. In accordance with the abutter input, there is no seating in the space.
