This Thursday, November 14 th at 10am, DCR’s Commissioner Jack Murray will celebrate DCR’s Matching Funds Project to stabilize the Powder Magazine at Magazine Beach Park. Please join us at the Magazine for this announcement. As most of you know, the City of Cambridge allocated $100,000 of CPA funds towards the stabilization of the Magazine in September AND the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association has raised about $13,000 from over 100 donors—thanks to all of you donors!—as well. DCR will match these monies to give the 1818 Magazine a new roof, new doors and new windows. And they will re-point the masonry and add security lighting to the structure. The building will get a tarp in the coming weeks and a new roof as early as next spring. Yeehaw!
If this news isn’t enough to lure you to the park on Thursday morning, know that there will be decaf and hot chocolate, courtesy of Starbucks, and pumpkin bread as well!
