Who is Fort Point Boston?

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Over the weekend at Open Studios it came to our attention that there are other online properties saying they are Fort Point Boston. We want you to be sure that FortPointBoston.com, Facebook.com/FortPointBoston and @fortpointboston are in no way affiliated with any real estate or business holdings.

We are simply local residents who love our neighborhood and all that it has to offer. We look forward to keeping our neighborhood connected!

Drew, Kate and Elisa

FPNA Board Mtg, 10/20

From Cam:

Our next Fort Point Neighborhood Association Board meeting will be at 7:30 pm on Thursday, October 20th in the Thompson Design Group space at 35 Channel Center. We invite neighbors to attend. Our usual board meeting date is the first Thursday of the month, but we have moved this one back to accommodate our artist neighbors, who are preparing for open studios this weekend. 

Please respond to this email if you plan to come and let us know the topic or questions you'd like to address.
The BRA has been in contact with our board to apologize for not sending notice to the neighborhood about the 381 Congress Street meeting, and to thank us for alerting them. We were told it was a mix-up in transferring project management responsibilities for this area to Geoff Lewis and wouldn't happen again now that they have consolidated all their contacts for Fort Point (over 500). FPNA is in the process of organizing several community meetings for Fort Point with the BRA to obtain some much needed clarification on many development issues affecting our neighborhood, such as BCEC expansion. Senator Hart has arranged at our request the first of these meetings with the developer of Seaport Square, John Hynes, to update us on their plans, including the plan for Q Park. We will be co-hosting this meeting with FPAC at 6:30pm on Tuesday, October 25th at 12 Farnsworth Street.

From Cam:
Although we usually meet the first Thursday of the month, we have decided to reschedule the monthly Fort Point Neighborhood Association board meeting for Thursday October 20th at 7:30 after open studios. The venue is still at 35 Channel Center in the DR space (Thompson Design).  All are welcome.
