Improve Condition of Cutillo Park and Morton Street, North End, Boston

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


We, citizens of the City of Boston, Massachusetts, petition the City, through its Parks and Recreation Department, Department of Public Works, and Inspectional Services Department, to clean up, repair, maintain and improve Cutillo Park and Morton Street in the North End of Boston. 

 Cutillo Park is one of the oldest parks in the North End, and is owned by the City.  Morton Street is a public way that is also owned by the City.  The City has the obligation to care for this public park and public street.  The current condition of Cutillo Park and Morton Street is not acceptable to the residents of Boston.  The park and the street are in a state of disrepair, are continually covered with trash of all sorts, and are not being properly maintained. 

 In addition, numerous trash barrels from area businesses line Morton Street, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Nowhere else in the City of Boston are residents or businesses permitted to place trash barrels along a public way in such a manner.  These trash barrels attract additional piles of trash (area businesses also pile boxes and other trash along the street) and detract significantly from the park and public street. 

 Therefore, we demand that the City, through its Parks and Recreation Department, Department of Public Works, and Inspectional Services Department, clean up, repair, maintain and improve Cutillo Park and Morton Street in the North End of Boston, and force the removal of all trash barrels and other refuse from Morton Street.
