28 BRIGHT STREET REDEVELOPMENT PLAN

It’s back! Our Councilman at Large, Rolando Lavarro has informed us that the JCRA is voting to designate a developer for the property at 28 Bright Street. They will be discussing it at their Commissioners meeting this Tuesday December 17th.

We will have a copy of the plan and discussing it at our meeting. Also if you care to attend the JCRA meeting it starts at 5pm at 30 Montgomery 14th Floor and is open to the public.
