Allston Speedway Public Meeting to Present Report Findings

The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) will host a Public Meeting on Monday, February 27th, 2012 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. to present a Draft Feasibility Report on the Future Reuse Options for the Charles River Speedway Buildings.  The meeting takes place at the Honan-Allston Branch Library Auditorium, 300 North Harvard Street in Allston.

DCR and Historic Boston partnered last year on a feasibility study for reuse options for the Charles River Speedway Building, including an updated conditions assessment, market analysis, preparation of cost estimates and conceptual renderings for redevelopment options.  The report will guide DCR’s future decision making regarding reuse and preservation for the Speedway, one of the agency’s most historically significant structures. 

This meeting follows on a community charette hosted by the Boston Preservation Alliance in the spring of 2011. Community feedback at this public meeting will be factored into the release of the final report in March of 2012.

If you have questions about the public meeting, please contact DCR at or call 617 626 4974.
