BCEC Expansion meeting 1/18, 100 Acres 1/30

from Cam:
Dear neighbors,

 The Fort Point Neighborhood Association is hosting three community meetings.  The first will address the expansion of the BCEC (Boston Convention & Exhibition Center), and has been scheduled on Jan. 18th at 6:30. A link to the expansion plan can be found at

We thank Add Inc for providing their offices at 311 Summer Street for our use.  BCEC executive director Jim Rooney and State Senator Jack Hart will attend. This gathering will provide a platform to learn about the latest version of their expansion plan and share concerns about its impact on Fort Point.

A community open space 100 Acres Plan meeting with only the neighborhood has been scheduled for Jan 30th at 6:30 on the second floor of 10 Channel Center. The link to the BRA 100 acres plan can be found at We thank Commonwealth Ventures for providing this venue for the meeting. Residents of the community familiar with the 100 Acres Plan and Seaport planning process will provide an update and facilitate further discussion.  This meeting is focused on the 100 Acres Plan and open space/public realm issues (including parks, dog runs and tot lots.) 

The third meeting will also focus on the 100 Acres Plan and other development issues. The BRA, Senator Hart, and other elected officials will be in attendance, and we are working on a February date TBA.

We will send several more reminders, but this first note will serve as a "heads up" and request for feedback.
