Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Hyde Jackson Square Main Street invite the community to an Open House and Holiday Window Stroll to celebrate Hyde Jackson Square Main Street’s work to strengthen the commercial business district in Hyde Square and Jackson Square in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston.

The event will be a great opportunity for residents, business owners, property owners, and representatives of neighborhood organizations to talk to staff, the Board of Directors, and volunteers of Hyde Jackson Square Main Street about the state of the neighborhood.

“The commercial business district is critical to maintaining a healthy and livable neighborhood and Hyde Jackson Square Main Street is central to this,” Jason LaGorga, President of the Board of Directors, said.

Hyde Jackson Square Main Street would like to hear from attendees about their assessment of the neighborhood and any suggestions as to how the neighborhood can be strengthened through business development, promotions, and events to encourage residents and non-residents alike to support businesses in the neighborhood.

The first place winner of the district’s holiday window decorating contest will also be announced at the Open House.

Following the Open House, staff will lead attendees for a casual walk up Centre Street to view the festive holiday storefronts.

The event is free and open to all. Light food will be provided.
