  1. How about cleaning up the polcari playground its a disgrace. We need new benches, shrubs, signs pick uo after your DOG.

  2. We had a Community Center. The North End Union. We had the C.C. Center started by NorthEnd Business men for the children of the North End. We had the Shaw House located at the North Bennet Industrial School. Other than the Industrial School which will still house a school The Eliot which North End children must be chosen by lottery to be able to attend. both the NorthEnd Union and the CC Center are now rentals and condos With all the land that became available around us There was no room to build a Y. This land was used for Rentals and Condos
    100thousand to STUDY. I’ll do it for free That money can be used to hire people that can clean up the Dog poo on our baseball fields, our playgrounds and our streets. on a daily basis. The strip of dirt&grass that lines the front of the DeFillipo (the gassy) is a toilet for Dogs.It Stinks and is a health hazard for both humans and animals. I guess its too far to use the dog park located in the same playground.
