Five Things to Know: Neighborhood Council Takes Up 161 S. Huntington Development

Essential daily information at a glance, including a zoning committee meeting of the JP Neighborhood Council to examine plans for 161 S. Huntington, a big new apartment building.

1. Forecast: Sunny. Highs in the lower 60s.

2. 161 S. Huntington Back in the Spotlight: A developer's plans to turn the Home for Little Wanderers into a five-story apartment development are back in the public eye tonight. The JP Neighborhood Council's Zoning Committee tackles the subject at 7 p.m. Thursday at Farnsworth House. (Hint -- arrive before 7 if you want a seat -- I smell standing-room only for this one.)

3. Help Create a New Permanent Public Mosaic: The JP Branch Library has a great public art project underway — creation of a new community mosaic to be on permanent display. 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Saturday at the library. Years from now, you can visit, point to the mosaic and say "I built that."

4. New Classes at the Eliot School: There's always something interesting being taught at the Eliot School. Classes starting at the end of this week include Teen Photo, Comics II and Teen Woodworking. (Hat tip to the community education school's Facebook page. Give it a "like" to keep up on Eliot School news.)

5. New England Aquarium Lecture: Fish Meat: It’s Hard to Know What to Eat: We love seafood, but the seas are running out of fish. This lecture hosted by the New England Aquarium will discuss what farmed fish are and how we can create a sustainable aquaculture. Stop by at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Aquarium's Harborside Learning Lab. You can register here.
