“What makes a great place?” – Community Visioning with Residents of Greater Ashmont

Studio G Principal Gail Sullivan facilitates a roundtable discussion, attended by Boston City Councilors Andrea Campbell and Frank Baker and Boston City Planner Cecilia Nardi

Studio G was glad to facilitate an engaging discussion around development in the Greater Ashmont Main Streets District. Approximately 70 residents attended the Dot Ave Visioning Session and shared their thoughts and ideas around placemaking and a community vision for the corridor.

From Greater Ashmont Main Street’s Executive Director, Jenn Cartee:

Next Steps:
Followup plans were made for two sets of weekend meetings over the summer months, each of which can go in depth for one hour on one of the four topics addressed by the Project for Public Spaces diagram. These sessions will use the initial Dot Ave Visioning Session’s work as the starting point. All our district neighbors are invited attend any or all of the meetings, which will be held in the Greater Ashmont Main Street office (1914 Dorchester Ave, REAR).  The topic breakdown is planned as follows:

  • Deep Dive Session # 1 , Saturday, July 8
    • Sociability (10 – 11am)
    • Access & Linkages (11am – noon)
  • Deep Dive Session # 2, Saturday, July 29
    • Comfort & Image (10 – 11am)
    • Uses & Activities (11am – noon)
