They are especially important to my constituents in East Boston and all those people who rely on these spectacular urban natural resources for recreation.” This year, Save the Harbor also let kids and the community decide how to invest $25,000 in Better Beaches funds in a participatory budgeting process that generated more than 200 ideas. Over 600 people voted for their favorites: Boston Harbor Beach Market, Diversity Matters Fest, Beats on the Beach Block Party, Teen Beach Bash, and Wellness Fest. Each winning idea received $5,000 in funding for the summer. “The metropolitan beaches belong to our communities and our young people,” said Maya Smith, Partnerships and Program Development Director at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. “Participatory budgeting lifts up their voices and lets them be a part of the decision-making process for their community.” Funds to support the program comes from the Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Baker/Polito Administration, and the Harpoon Shamrock Splash, which was held on March 6, 2022, at Constitution Beach in East Boston. “DCR is proud of our Better Beaches Program Partnership with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay,” said Acting DCR Commissioner Stephanie Cooper. “We are all looking forward to another great season of free events and programs on DCR’s beaches from Nahant to Nantasket,” New partners this year include Circus Up, Inc, North Shore Women of Color Association, YMCA of Metro-North, Po Couto: Haus of Threes, City of Revere Travel & Tourism Department, Charlestown YMCA, Caribbean American Carnival Association of Boston, Inc, Next Level Factory, South Boston en Acción, The Black Literacy & Arts Collaborative Project, Fields Corner Crossroads Collaborative, Linda Wells, Daddy & Me Literacy Program, Norfolk Sheriff’s Office, Quincycles, Latifa Ziyad, Soca Hikes, Veronica Robles Cultural Center, Carolyn Lewenberg, Soca Fusion, and The Flavor Continues Save the Harbor’s success LEGAL NOTICE EVERETT PLANNING BOARD PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE Public Hearing on an application by Alyssa DeSantis & Christopher Dedic Property located at: 16-20 Liberty Street Site Plan Review & Inclusionary Zoning In accordance with the provisions of M.G.L Chapter 40A and with Sections 4, 19, and 32 of the Everett Zoning Ordinance, the Everett Planning Board will conduct a public hearing on Tuesday, July 5, 2022 at 6:00PM in the Speaker George Keverian Room (Room 37, Everett City Hall) to consider the above-listed application for Site Plan Review and Special Permit for Inclusionary Zoning.
