An announcement was made this week that Boston English’s current field has been deemed unplayable - but action is already being taken.
The Boston Parks and Recreation Department and the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services are holding a meeting regarding the artificial turf replacement at Boston English High School in Jamaica Plain.
The meeting is open to the public and will be the first of many.
The meeting will include a discussion on replacing the existing turf with new turf on the multipurpose field.
The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 15 in the Curtis Hall Community Center Senior room.
