Officials in Jamaica Plain next week will hold a public meeting to discuss recommendations for improving the Arborway Crossing at the Arnold Arboretum. 

The meeting will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 6 at the First Church in Jamaica Plain, Unitarian Universalist, at 6 Eliot St. The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation will co-host the meeting with the Arborway Coalition and partners. 

The focus of the meeting will be to discuss recommendations for pedestrian/bicyclist safety improvements at the Upper Arborway crossing at the Arboretum's main entrance. 

Funding for the transportation planning and engineering services that resulted in the recommendations were provided through the DCR's Partnerships Matching Funds Program and the Arborway Coalition and partners, according to recent announcement from the DCR.

Area residents who attend the meeting will be encouraged to provide input on the recommendations. 

Those who wish to provide comments or questions regarding the project can email DCR.Updates@state.ma.us with "Arborway Crossing" in the subject line.
