The temporarily designated DUNKIN DONUTS project is slated to be built on the Archer-Bonnell site at the foot of Highland Park (Bartlett and Washington Street).

And as a resident, community leader and co-founder of the John Eliot Square neighborhood association (JESNA)- I am asking my neighbors to sign this petition and put a STOP to this FOOLISHNESS in our neighborhood!

Here are several reasons why:

• DIRECT ABUTTERS to this project were NOT NOTIFIED of prior meetings or designation

• There is absolutely NO COMMUNITY BENEFIT economically, artistically, job creation, quality of life

• There is NO PARKING PLAN for customers or workers

• NO LIVING WAGES for workers

• LITTER, RATS, ROACHES that this business would bring- ugg!

• UNHEALTHY PROCESSED SWEET FOOD in the neighborhood with the highest rate of Sugar Diabetes

• FRANCHISES are dangerous for our community! They stop small, “Mom & Pop” businesses from being established & growing organically in the community

• MORE TRAFFIC headaches

• It will work against the Bartlett Yard businesses and surrounding parcel development for Roxbury

• There is already an existing Dunkin Donuts in Dudley Square

• The City (DND) ignored the neighborhood's request for a score card on how each proposal was weighed

• The City (DND) ignored the neighborhood's feedback on their own Co-urbanize website http://www.courbanize.com/dnd-archer-bonell-site/ (COMMENT SECTION)
