BPC chair Tammy Meltzer
“There have been numerous changes to the community since 2013,” when the process of studying ways to improve South End Avenue began, Committee chair Tammy Meltzer said, “including the opening of Brookfield Place, changes on Liberty Street, and changes in the ways that consumers shop.” She added that the number of office workers and tourists who now walk along South End Avenue each day has jumped significantly.
