"A $15,000 grant from the Lincoln Instititute of Land Policy was announced in April at a special meeting of the BSA [Boston Society of Architects] group planning the Civic Initiative for a Livable New England. Developed by the BSA in league with the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Planning Association, the Boston Bar Association and the Massachusetts Environmental Protection Agency, the Civic Initiative is a two-year exploration of smart-planning alternatives available to those of us who live in New England. As issues defined as "smart growth," "suburban sprawl," and "livable communities" are sprinkled throughout news reports in our daily papers and broadcast media, the BSA's Civic Initiative is an effort to bring together the public-policy makers and the residents of New England who can help construct appropriate rationales and tools that will lead to the development of well-planned neighborhoods, towns, and regions. Led by BSA Vice-President Rebecca Barnes FAIA and co-chairs Gary Graham FAIA and Randy Jones AIA, the other activists playing leadership roles in this extraordinary series of events include Lincoln Institiute's Armando Carbonell and the key players listed in the column at right. [lists a bunch of big architectural and political honchos in Boston] This initiative has attracted national attention and BSA members and allies are encouraged to join us in this unusual effort. For details, write/call program coordinator Alexandra Lee at alee [at] architects.org/617-951-1433 x 225." @@ coho [at] world.std.com @@ @@@@ Diane Simpson http://jpcohousing.org @@@@ | | Boston, MA 02130-4436 617-522-2209 | | | "| NEXT JP COHOUSING NEWCOMERS DINNER:JUNE 12 |" | | V| Dogwood Cafe 6-8 p.m. |V | | | Across from Forest Hills Station in Boston, MA | | +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
