This summer, the Boston Preservation Alliance is compiling a list of high-risk preservation priorities, recognized Landmarks, and proposed new development in Fenway/Kenmore. The Alliance recognizes that urban development is critical for the lasting economic and social prosperity of the Fenway/Kenmore neighborhood. However, we want development that addresses community concerns and respects the neighborhood’s past. Our goal is to identify and guide advocacy for high-risk preservation priorities based on the expressed needs and values of community stakeholders. We hope this will serve as a model for future Boston neighborhoods.
