Beacon Hill Civic Association Committees
Every spring, the Beacon Hill Civic Association publishes its Annual Report covering committee accomplishments during the past year. We’ll be sharing the committees’ reports here over the next weeks.
Cambridge Street Committee
The Cambridge Street Committee was established to address concerns of residents and businesses near and along Cambridge Street related to safety, cleanliness, and a desire for more teaming among the Cambridge Street business community, the Charles Street business community, and the Beacon Hill neighborhood. This year the Cambridge Street Committee continued work with City officials and neighbors on safety issues and betterments to Cambridge Street, including plantings, ad-free trash receptacles, graffiti removal and street cleaning.
The Green Committee of the Beacon Hill Civic Association continues to discuss strategies for sustainable urban living in our neighborhood, including recycling, reduced waste and education, and environment safety and preservation. The committee continues to work with representatives from the City of Boston and other neighborhood groups to support community education and outreach. This year we worked with the community to transition to the 6 AM trash pickup and raise awareness about recycling and reduced waste. Current goals include closer integration with other committees, such as Tree and Streets & Sidewalks, to consolidate and align our neighborhood initiatives, objectives, and effectiveness. The committee hopes to work with the city to create pedestrian and biker safe bike lanes and continue to explore urban composting options.
