Roxbury, Jamaica Plain: what can we do with the cleared land in the southwest corridor? by SW - Corridor Land Development Coalition. Download PDF EPUB FB2

Minutes of the citizen task force meetings held at St. John's Episcopal Church in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood whose concern is the Southwest Corridor project plans for the MA Bay Transportation Authority's Orange Line in their neighborhood; topics covered include architecture of the Green Street and Boylston Street MBTA stations, track alignment, urban design, land use, and Author: Robert Adams.

The Massachusetts Bay Colony founded a group of six towns, including Boston, Cambridge, and Roxbury. For more than years, Roxbury also encompassed West Roxbury and Jamaica Plain.

Three miles south, the only land route to the capital led through Roxbury, which made the town important for both transportation and trade.

Roxbury in the s also held many of the resources Time zone: Eastern. The Southwest Corridor Project is the outgrowth of what started out to be a new interstate highway (I) through Boston plus a crosstown inner-city road (the ''inner belt'') connecting the.

The land where the Orange Line and Amtrak-MBTA trains now operate through Boston, Roxbury, and Jamaica Plain and which makes up most of the Southwest Corridor Park, is a majority of the land taken for the highway, and later became the route of the relocated railroad right-of-way.

In the s, plans were made to construct an eight-lane highway through the heart of some of Boston’s poorest neighborhoods, including Jamaica Plain, Roxbury, and the South End. In preparation for the highway, entire blocks and neighborhoods were completely demolished and left barren, forcing many to leave behind their homes.

The two highways, the Inner Belt and the Southwest Corridor, were going to meet in a five-story interchange near where the Islamic Center is in Roxbury now. In“hourlies” ran from Jamaica Plain to Roxbury and Boston on a regular schedule, and the s brought larger “omnibuses” to carry the growing passenger base.

The first train line reached Jamaica Plain in when the Boston and Providence Rail Road began service, with special low “commuter” fares offered residents in   In Jamaica Plain had seceded from Roxbury and joined the town of West Roxbury to escape Boston’s continued expansion, but in West Roxbury was itself annexed to Boston – a reflection of the area’s changing status from independent village to integral suburb of the city.

The MBTA and the City of Boston are prepared to initiate and complete Southwest Corridor develop- ment in an expeditious manner that is consistent with goals and objectives expressed in the Southwest Cor- ridor Development Plaa For further information contact: Michael Hunter, MBTA Real Estate Development, Southwest Corridor - Mary.

City Councilor Matt O'Malley (Jamaica Plain, West Roxbury), says he understands the need to keep dogs from running loose in the tiny Beecher Street Park. But O'Malley says the dog owners of JP need a place where their pets can legally roam free and socialize.

In a letter today to Leo Roy, commissioner of the state Department of Conservation and Recreation, O'Malley says the Southwest Corridor. A second scheme, the Master Highway Plan announced by the state inwas even more ambitious.

It included the Southwest Expressway (I) that would have plowed through Jamaica Plain, seven other radial highways and an “Inner Belt” highway that would have run through Roxbury, Brookline, Kenmore, Cambridge and Somerville.

In the 18th century, Jamaica Plain was a rural village in the Town of Roxbury. Its wooded hills and acre pond made the area “a perfect site for the country estates of the well-to-do,” wrote the Jamaica Plain Historical Task Force.The anti-SouthWest Corridor activities in JP were actually quite small, and mostly aimed at getting the highway depressed rather than a raised structure.

It's the harm done by the project that should be discussed - loss of homes, depressed property values, arson, etc. MarkinBoston (talk) .Roxbury, which was slightly farther away, did not object to the trains being aboveground but wanted facilities for kids. The Jamaica Plain and South End neighborhoods didn't care about children's.
