WEST END GREENWAY: Ricci and Play All Day have the opportunity to buy land from the railroad (something that hasn’t happened in a long, long time) all of the way from Bartlett Street to Maplewood Avenue. The area is currently zoned as office/research. The dream is to change the zoning to CD4W (the zoning the strip currently abuts) and develop housing under “character-based zoning” and bequeath the City with a 25′ strip along the water to serve as a greenway connecting the West End to downtown, including water access for kayaks, etc.
Kate and Keith are in the process of developing Sustainable Seacoast
to eliminate single-use plastic containers from the Seacoast Region. Their goal is to work with restaurant owners to create change one business at a time and attempt to develop critical mass for the project. Steps to change include; compostable containers, straw-on-demand, paper to-go bags in an attempt to eliminate plastics in any way they can.
