Public meetings this week look at $22 million in direct-aid for lower-income families, the city’s budget for the next fiscal year, a moratorium on construction of labs and offices around Alewife, a Fresh Pond beer garden, bike lanes on Brattle Street, municipal broadband and ideas for improving The Port and the future of Cambridge Street.
Public meetings this week look at approvals and timelines for the next set of bike lanes and a study of their business impacts, a 400-foot tower for Kendall Square that would be the city’s tallest, a pause on office and lab development around Alewife, a possible guaranteed income program for the city’s poorest and much more.
Public meetings this week look at stemming rat infestations, free dog licensing for seniors and an accounting for snow season; Café Batifol’s arrival in Kendall and Vitality Bowls in Central; ending off-street parking requirements; free CharlieCards for students; converting the Sacred Heart rectory into affordable rentals; and more.
Public meetings this week look at expanding Riverbend park and changing the city’s bike law; a climate resilience zoning report and emissions accounting zoning petition; preventing wage theft; school district budgeting; and an Alewife-area lab building proposal – and stop off at for a “nonprofit row” building ribbon-cutting event.
Public meetings this week look at problems with rats and a change in preschool hours, missing a May 1 deadline on bike lane construction, turning a vacant lot in The Port into affordable homes, special education policies, an energy-use disclosure law, Alewife-area lab moratorium, city manager search, law against wage theft and much more.
These looks at what’s on the big screen in the coming week include the latest pull at a “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and a putrid “Pursuit,” but also the devastating “Sundown,” delightfully weird “Strawberry Mansion” and feel-good “Dog.” The DocYard screens “Rock Bottom Riser” and there’s lots to look forward to at The Brattle and Somerville Theatre.
