Meeting for All Brookline Village Business People who care about Parking
Please join us on Wednesday, January 30th, at 8:00 - 9:30 am, at the Homewood Suites, 111 Boylston Street, Brookline, in their Conference Room (left of the lobby), to learn about the possibility of implementing a Parking Benefits District in Brookline Village and share your thoughts. Attendance, garage parking, and coffee & bagels
This meeting will help to inform a decision to present a Warrant Article to Town Meeting to make Brookline Village a Parking Benefits District.
A Parking Benefits District in Brookline Village would fund streetscape improvements and economic development projects, chosen by the Brookline Village community, through a modest increase in parking meter rates. This increase would also encourage higher parking turnover, freeing up spaces for customers and patrons of Brookline Village businesses.
Chris Dempsey, Brookline Transportation Board President, will be presenting.

We hope to see you there!
