Rename East Boston Greenway to Mary Ellen Welch Greenway
We the undersigned residents of East Boston support the renaming of East Boston Greenway to Mary Ellen Welch Greenway, in recognition of the tireless community leader who fought for justice all her life. She advocated for green open spaces passionately, and we hope that, bearing her name, the Greenway will not only continue to serve the community in many ways but also inspire generations to come.
Petitions are part of the Boston Parks and Recreation Departments’ park renaming process. This online petition is just part of the outreach for the renaming proposal which has involved presentations at all the surrounding neighborhood associations and more, and has been met with near unanimous support. The paper petitions have over 200 signatures.
