Beacon Hill groups oppose city’s sidewalk and tree-cutting plans

A number of neighborhood groups are opposing the city’s plans to alter the sidewalk street-scape on Beacon Hill, plans that include cutting down hundreds of trees, removal of some bricks and new-style curb cuts for the disabled.

Hey, we’re all for making the neighborhood more disabled-friendly. But it sure looks like the city’s DPW is just pursuing the cheapest and easiest route toward that goal.

It is an historic district, after all. Right?
