A Day In The Life of the North End

A day in the life of the North End is a tool used for telling us how the Nazzaro Community Center fits into your life and how a new or renovated building could better meet the communities’ needs. This survey’s purpose is to engage the public by taking your experience of the neighborhood – your daily routine, how you get around, how you would use community facilities and programs – and use it to discover what is or is not working.
