The Center will receive $125,000 to help to combat substance abuse while ABCD will pick up $50,000 to help with programs for area residents.
Through the Representative’s efforts local organizations can provide quality services to the community.
Feast goers need to respect the neighborhood
It’s that time of the year for the many religious feast that will take place in the North End at different venues.
The traditional weekend events attract thousands of visitors to the neighborhood and are major family activities.
While the Societies, working with city agencies and Boston Police usually have their act together, creating and promoting public safety, cleaning up the areas and making sure the feasts are close by 11pm, everyone still needs to chip in to make a difference.
Feast goers should not be drinking publicly, littering, using the community as a toilet, inciting fights and should respect the neighborhood, especially once the feasts have closed down for the evening.
Councilor LaMattina supported North Square budget projects
North Square, the site of Paul Revere’s House and Rachel Revere Park, will soon receive a much-needed facelift by the City of Boston Parks Department and Public Facilities Department.
Both projects are included in the city budget to begin this year.
There have been several meetings with the residents, the business community and the Paul Revere House to discuss the plans. Other meetings will be held for final design approval by the community in general.
Boston City Councilor Sal LaMattina was instrumental in having both projects placed on the budget along with other projects like the Cutillo Park on Stillman Street and Paul Revere Mall (Prado).
