Neighbors Want 15 Necco Changed

updated 01/15/20: Comment deadline extended from Jan 17th to February 3, 2020.

At Monday night's BPDA Community Meeting for 15 Necco Street over 150 Fort Point neighbors turned out to have their voices heard and their message was clear. 

The Boston Globe took notice. The City staff was surprised. The development team was shocked.

Make sure your voice is heard. 

Submit a letter to the BPDA and our elected officials.  
Our personal comments are the most effective way to make change happen.

We only have one chance to get this right.

Comment letter deadline is now Monday, February 3, 2020.
