The survey, managed by BCT Design Group (BCT), solicited responses and suggestions to help CWDI focus street naming efforts by asking the public to rank the four possible naming themes, which were: 1) Rose Hill; 2)Roses; 3)Light / Sources of Light; 4) Maritime Heritage.
“We are pleased with the clarity the community provided,” says Matt Leonard, CWDI’s Executive Director. “Maritime Heritage is the theme they selected and on which we are now focused.”
CWDI is working with BCT to develop three final name choices based on the Maritime Heritage theme selected by the community, including evaluating some of the specific names suggested by those who completed the survey. The three naming options will be presented live to the public on the new road at Cambridge Harbor on August 8, 2023, beginning at 5:30PM (See Map Below).
This free event will include free ice cream, Cambridge Harbor merchandise giveaways, and most importantly the opportunity for the community to make the final naming decision and know the results in real time.
“This will be our first community event on the newly opened site,” says Leonard. “On a small scale, the community will experience the type of free activities we intend for them regularly as we build-out the public parks and amenity spaces throughout Cambridge Harbor.”
Cambridge Harbor is being planned as a highly activated waterfront district to include public spaces, amenities, and events focused on promoting the City of Cambridge and Dorchester County’s multi-faceted history, heritage, and culture while creating a unique destination for tourism.
