Reminder: PSNA Meeting May 19th - Drug use and refuse in the little MBTA park at Porter Square

Reminder: PSNA May 19th Virtual Meeting! Thursday, May 19, 7:00 – 9:00 pm We will discuss the drug use and refuse problem at the little MBTA park in Porter Square with a number of city representatives - CPD (social work unit), DPW, CDD and other city resources. We, individually, do not have the answers, but collectively we might. Increasingly, it is clear this will be a process. We have asked Alexis Grandberg, a representative of CASPAR First Step Street Outreach to join us. https://www.baycovehumanservices.org/caspar-first-step The Rev. Matt Stewart of St. James Church will join us - they work with the homeless in the area, https://www.stjamescambridge.org/ministries-1. While we have been unable to get someone from the shopping center to join us, we have asked one of our own members to talk about a few of the problems there. We have started a conversation with the MBTA (Thanks to Rep. Marjorie Decker), and we look forward to giving the MBTA feedback from this meeting, leading to smaller working group discussions as a follow up. Finally, we will take a few minutes to affirm our by-laws, sent out last month, and online at https://portersquare.net/. So far the only suggestion I have received is to review them every 2 years, not every year. ******************************************************** Join Zoom Meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84775288167?pwd=cXFvMlFtQ2JkSkUydkE5djRoMEdWQT09 Meeting ID: 847 7528 8167 Passcode: 212215 If phoning in: Find your local number: https://us02web.zoom.us/u/kdUN1HRoP3 We look forward to seeing you virtually!
