Central Square Summer Discussions

Help Shape the Future of Central Square


Jill Brown Rhone Park at Lafayette Square

The Central Square Advisory Committee (2011/2012) and the City of Cambridge invite you to help plan for the future of Central Square as part of the Kendall Square Central Square (K2C2) Planning Study. Learn about the planning process to date and the vision emerging from Advisory Committee discussions informed by the two public meetings held in June 2011 and April 2012.  These informal sessions provide a great opportunity to weigh in as the Committee fine-tunes its recommendations.

Please join the discussion – your voice is essential to the success of Central Square!

A series of neighborhood open houses and site walks will be held throughout the summer (click here to download the poster).  All ages are welcome and we encourage you to bring a neighbor or a friend. Light refreshments will be served.
