According to Boston Now Downtown Quincy will be getting a much needed face lift. The plan calls for the redirection of Burgin Parkway, with several buildings and established businesses being destroyed in the process. The plan calls for 9 buildings to be demolished in total. This will make way for the new Quincy Center Concourse, a pedestrian walkway, new residential units and retail space. In total, the city plans on spending $80 Million. The plan has many supporters, but it has also drawn criticism for it lack of preservation of historic Quincy. What are your toughs?BR

The City of Quincy is in negotiations with Honeywell Corp. to upgrade and modify all schools and municipal buildings. The improvements will consist of newer more efficient heating and lighting systems. There has been some talk of solar panels also being used.After having an evaluation done, it was determined that the City would save approximately $600,000 per year in energy savings.The legislature has recently passed legislation that allows communities the opportunity to save energy with these programs and pay for them with the savings involved. This eliminates the bidding process and saves money for the tax payers. The project will actually be paid for by the City with money saved on energy costs. This bill also allows for a longer pay back period.Many other communities are watching Qu...

The Quincy City Council just voted to approve a 1 year moratorium on building three or more units in resdience B zoning.Residence B zoning allows for construction of Multi-Unit dwellings. Older homes have been bought up, torn down, and 3 plus Townhouse units built in it's place.The City Councillors have been concerned about the changing neighborhood character, and have decided to vote for the moratorium until they can take a long look at the issue. There could be zoning changes coming that would stop the building permanantly, however, this vote is for the one year period.
