What additions would you make to the retail mix along Boston Ave and the commercial node at Winthrop Street in Medford? How frequently do you patronize the businesses that are there now, and what would make you spend more time in the area? How could the streetscape be improved? Traffic calming? Safer pedestrian and bike circulation? Bike racks? Benches? Trees? Pedestrian-scale street lights? Parklets? Student housing? Mixed-use development? How do you think the future College Ave Green Line Station will/should affect the Boston Ave corridor and Tufts campus?
Tufts students, staff, and faculty are invited to share their ideas about improving the Hillside business district and surrounding neighborhood and helping to shape its future.
