Where & When: Main Branch, Cambridge Public Library (449 Broadway) on Thursday, June 11,  6:30-8:30pm

While the Esplanade has long been the jewel on the Charles, the Cambridge river parklands, at long last, are beginning to receive their due. Hear the latest about North Point Park’s skate park, Greenough Boulevard, and Magazine Beach improvements. A discussion about best models for the public/private partnerships that have made these advances possible will follow. Be part of this conversation!

Speakers: Rep. Jay Livingstone, Charles Sullivan (Ex. Director, Cambridge Historical Commission), Gina Foote (Board Member, Charles River Conservancy), Herb Nolan (Deputy Director, Lawrence and Lillian Solomon Foundation), Cathie Zusy (Chair, Magazine Beach Comm., Cambridgeport Neighborhood Assoc.). Richard Rossi (City Manager, Cambridge), Karl Haglund (Senior Planner, DCR). Celebrated mediator and facilitator Jack Wofford will moderate.

Transportation Information:

The Main Library is accessible by both bus and subway.

A 70-car underground parking garage with access from Broadway is available when the library is open. It costs 25 cents for every 15 minutes of parking. You may pay by using quarters or credit card (Mastercard or Visa).
