Want to talk to the city about open space and other neighborhood needs?

Well, grab a seat and a Dunkins’ coffee because Mayor Thomas Menino, along with the city’s Parks and Recreation department, are hosting a series of meet and greets to gab about what’s going on in the Hub.

The meetups will focus on gripes about city services, and what locals would like to see in certain park areas.

There will be a comment box, too, so you can drop anonymous notes without having to deal with the anxiety that goes along with speaking to the mayor face-to-face.


It’s an annual event and meetings with constituents will be held from May 15 through June 23.
