Meeting on Harborwalk Project Set
The Town of Winthrop will host a public meeting on Thursday, September 5 at the Ferry Terminal Building, 707 Shirley Street, to discuss the engineering, design and permitting of the planned HarborWalk project, which seeks to transform the old narrow gauge railroad trestle that extends into Winthrop Harbor between Crystal Cove and the Winthrop apartments buildings on Washington Street.
The engineering firm of Parsons Brinkerhoff is conducting final engineering and design tasks on the HarborWalk concept, through a $300,000 grant from the Seaport Advisory Council.
As they begin this work, they are reaching out to eh community to get public input into the design of the HarborWalk and obtain recommendations on amenities and services the new public space could offer to residents and visitors.
All residents of the community are invited to attend, particularly those who live in the Shirley Street, Washington Street, Delby’s Corner neighborhood, who will be effected by the planned project.
