Tonight at 7 p.m. is the first in a series of three community conversations examining the challenges facing Larchmont Boulevard.

Larchmont 2021 A Community Conversation is being organized and convened by residents representing various neighborhood interests and groups. This writer is representing the Larchmont Boulevard Association as one of the facilitators of this evening’s virtual meeting. I will be joined by architect and urban planner John Kaliski, a resident of Windsor Village, who will speak on the Larchmont “Q” Conditions and will moderate the discussion. In addition, Gary Gilbert, a writer, longtime Windsor Square resident, and accidental activist who worked to preserve the Sunday Larchmont Farmers Market when it appeared threatened by a proposal for a small playground in its public parking lot, and Heather Duffy Boylston, a longtime resident of Larchmont Village, a founder of Larchmont Charter School, and the executive director of the Larchmont Village Business Improvement District, will also participate.

All three sessions are open to the public and will be recorded. We will also share a report on the working consensus derived from the learning and listening sessions, including recommendations for next steps. And finally, we will post pertinent material and interviews with retail and placemaking experts on the website we created,, where you can get updates and register to attend the conversations.

See you tonight on Zoom!
