5 Things to Know for Monday
Essential daily information at a glance.
1. Forecast: Sunny again. Highs in the upper 40s.
2. Two of the most important events this week are things that aren't happening: Today the state was supposed to tell a group of stakeholders whether it has decided to build a new bridge through Forest Hills or keep everything on ground level. But that meeting, and another one for the public as a whole set for Wednesday, have been put on hold until at least January while the state reviews the comments that have come in. Later this morning I'll post an item about a pro-"at-grade" rally held Friday.
3. Parents, if you're shopping for a Boston Public School, there are open houses at all BPS schools through January. Some of the ones this week include Tuesday, with the JFK on display at 8 a.m. and the Boston Teachers Union School at 6 p.m.
4. Speaking of schools, if you'd like to get your holiday shopping done at two of JP's most personlity-filled stores, you'll also be doing a solid for the Curley School Parent Council. Fifteen percent of sales tonight from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Boing! and Kitchen Witch go to help the Curley.
5. And if you've got an axe to grind for or against the new ice rink/rec center planned for Jackson Square, the project is scheduled to go before the Zoning Board of Appeals on Tuesday morning at 9:30 a.m.
