2016 Priorities for the North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association [Video]

The North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA) held a discussion regarding priorities for the new year, 2016.

Some of the notable suggestions:

  • Participate in the public process associated regarding the North Station transportation plan. Developers are funding $400,000 toward the traffic study. Read more here.
  • Invite the At-Large City Councilors to speak at upcoming NEWRA meetings.
  • Increase communication through a newsletter. (Sign up for our free newsletter.)
  • BRA reform efforts and watching for changes after project approval (i.e., Parcel 9).

  1. Can we add a poll for suggestions for priorities? Some of us aren’t members and/or can’t attend meetings…

    1. Mike,
      You and every other North End resident are encouraged to submit any ideas or suggestions by email to:
      We will review all submissions and incorporate them into the 2016 Priorities discussion that will continue at the NEWRA January meeting to be held on Thursday, January 14th at 7:00pm in the Nazzaro Center. NEWRA’s monthly meetings are open to the public, and you don’t have to be a member to attend or participate.

  2. The North End above all is a NEIGHBORHOOD with thousands of residents. The North End is
    also Restaurant Row and we have far too many restaurants thanks to the City who gave them
    Carte Blanche. We see plenty of Police driving around during the day, but where are they at
    night? I know we live in a City, but this does not mean our residents should lack sleep due to
    the drunks that comb our streets that are coming from various establishments, whether it be the
    North End, Faneuil Hall or North Station. All residents are not on the same time schedule.
    We have doctors and nurses and many others that are not on the 9 – 5 Monday -Friday schedule.
    Why should anyone have to sacrifice their sleep for these establishments? We sacrificed enough.
    Anyone that tells you this comes with City Living is full of Bull. People only get away with what you
    allow them to get away with and we all know through past episodes what has happened in this
    neighborhood. Why, because they got away with it. This is the truth, like it or not. I think we have
    all seen enough videos on the internet to prove what I am saying. The City should be putting
    signs up all over the neighborhood, or I should say all the restaurants should come together and
    post signs, reading PLEASE HAVE REGARD FOR OUR RESIDENTS. Short and Sweet and
    right to the point. Remember most of these restaurant owners are not affected by the noise like
    residents are. Check out where most of the owners live, out of the city and those that live in
    the North End, are basically in secluded areas.
