About PMAC

For over three decades, the Park Management Advisory Committee has provided a forum for community input regarding the Southwest Corridor Park. Together with the Park Conservancy (SWCPC), PMAC helps to channel the energy of users, friends, and volunteers into active stewardship.

PMAC Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm and rotate between the three sections of the corridor: at 70 St. Botolph Street in the Back Bay/South End; at the Boston police station on Washington Street in Jamaica Plain; and at the Boston Police Headquarters at One Schroeder Plaza at the corner of Ruggles and Tremont Streets, near Ruggles Station.

The first part of each monthly meeting is devoted to public safety. Police from the city, state, MBTA, and Northeastern University report on safety concerns, proposing and soliciting solutions to problems perceived. The second part of the meeting is given over to member input, with discussion on an open range of matters such as special park projects, care of plantings and shrubs, improvements in signage, volunteer activities, membership outreach, etc.
