Help plan Dedham Square’s Future: Community Meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 30

Post Date: 01/24/2018 12:00 AM

Dedham residents of all ages, business owners and employees—anyone with an interest in Dedham Square’s future—are invited to a community meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 30, in the Dedham Middle School Auditorium, 70 Whiting Ave.

Tuesday night’s community meeting will include a presentation of ideas about a vision for Dedham Square’s future, discussion of how the design of buildings and blocks play a role in that future, and opportunities for members of the public to provide input.

The meeting is being hosted by the Dedham Square Steering Committee, which engaged Gamble Associates, a respected architectural and planning firm that has worked with other communities on design guidelines to establish and documented a vision for future development.  

Gamble Associates will present images of Dedham’s historical past, point out strong features of its urban design and areas of improvement, and make recommendations for what can be done to support and reinforce quality new developments.  
Please attend if you have an interest in Dedham Square. Strong community engagement is very important to the success of this design guidelines effort, which will address design elements like building quality, massing, height, materials, and architectural character.

The Steering Committee will host additional communities this year to gather public comment on design goals and other objectives to make Dedham Square more vibrant and livable.

The Dedham Square Steering Committee, formed by Dedham’s Planning Board in 2017, includes nine members representing a cross section of Dedham. For more information, please see the Design Guidelines Project Page.

For more information, please contact Economic Development Director John Sisson, (781) 751-9175, jsisson@dedham-ma.gov.
