Boston: Council Adopts Resolution to Improve Quality of Life for D7

~ District Seven, which encompasses Roxbury, South End, Fenway, and Dorchester, is in need of spaces to allow for residents to have the option of outdoor activities and indoor entertainment. Councilor Fernandes Anderson has proposed a resolution to address the lack of well-designed and maintained public spaces, community centers, open space, and green space in the primarily Black and Brown neighborhoods of District Seven.

The resolution acknowledges the current inequities that District Seven faces and supports the mental, emotional, physical health and creative needs of the residents in the district. It also aims to provide community restorative healing spaces while beautifying the community with 87 vacant parcels of undevelopable land throughout the district. The resolution seeks to create spaces that will allow for mindfulness and fitness activities which support mental health care.

With this resolution, District Seven hopes to bridge the gap between its neighborhoods and those in other parts of Boston.
