Hundreds of residents and neighbors gathered in the cafeteria of the Murphy School on Tuesday night to discuss the Pine Street Inn’s proposed plan to convert the old Comfort Inn at 900 Morrissey Blvd. into housing for the formerly homeless.
Here is a quick recap of what what discussed.
Here is what is being proposed:
During the Q+A section of the meeting (which got heated at times) residents brought up concerns including the scale of the project, public safety, crime and drug use. The majority of attendees including City Councilor Frank Baker were against the proposed project, however there were residents in attendance there to show their support.
Bianca Beltan from NBC Boston has a great twitter thread for those who couldn’t attend the meeting. You can check it out here!
If this project is approved, construction will be begin in the summer of 2023.
Another community meeting is in the works and will be take place in October. More details to follow.
