New Beacon Street Benches Have Arrived

As a result of BrooklineCAN advocacy, Beacon Street pedestrians of all ages are enjoying new benches in a dozen locations. The benches were installed late in the summer by the Department of Public Works. Most of the new benches are outside of the commercial areas. (In the past, Beacon Street had benches only within the commercial areas.)  A major purpose is to support pedestrians as they walk along the street. We thank DPW Commissioner Andrew Pappastergion for inviting BrooklineCAN to recommend locations for benches, finding financing for the project, and assuring that the benches were ordered and installed.  Photos of the benches can be found on the BrooklineCAN website: http://www.brooklinecan.org/livable_community.html#beacon_benches
