Nuestra Comunidad is coordinating an effort to help the neighborhood surrounding Blue Hill Avenue between Dudley Street and Quincy Street develop a positive and recognizable image for the the area. The neighborhood is between the well-recognized areas of Dudley Square, Grove Hall, and Uphams Corner and adjacent to the Moreland Street Historic District, within in the area outlined in the map below.
The goals of the effort are to:
- Strengthen community pride
- Promote the neighborhood as a place to do live and do business
- Improve the neighborhood's appearance and find uses for vacant lots
For several months, a group of residents and business people from the neighborhood have gathered to begin work on a neighborhood marketing effort. The committee has selected the area outline in blue on the map below as the focus of our efforts, and has selected three proposed names for the neighborhood, to distinguish it from surrounding areas with strong identities.
If you live, work, or own a business in the neighborhood, we would like to hear from you about thee names proposed by the committee. The committee will be doing further outreach within the neighborhood.
