Cushing Plaza Reconstruction Project: Community Meeting Thursday, July 29th from 6PM to 7:30PM

Cushing Plaza, located at Cushing Street and Huron Avenue, is scheduled for upcoming reconstruction.

The Department of Public Works and the City's Community Development Department will be hosting a community meeting on Thursday, July 29th from 6PM-7:30PM at the West Cambridge Youth Center, 680 Huron Ave to discuss the Cushing Plaza Reconstruction Project. We encourage you to attend, as we value the feedback, we receive from Cambridge residents and businesses. Please note all attendees must wear a mask when inside the Youth Center.

City staff will be presenting design plans that propose to reduce the amount of impervious brick area and create space for trees and landscaping. Removing hardscape results in improved water quality by reducing stormwater runoff and allowing rainwater to infiltrate the ground.

For those unable to attend, the presentation will be posted to the project page following the meeting.
