Community Conversation: Wing’s Court & Custom House Square


Last year, Butch McCarthy did a great story for New Bedford Guide on Ginger Grill.  In that article, the possibility of improving Wing’s court in downtown New Bedford  was mentioned. Here is an excerpt:

“J.T. Ghim has spearheaded an effort to clean up Wing’s Court, the lane that runs in an L-Shape from Union St. to Purchase St. behind several businesses, including Ginger Grill. Although the powers-that-be in the city gave them the brush-off, they still pursue this vision on their own. Their dream is to have a market behind Ginger Grill with frontage on Wing’s Court, where they would sell fresh produce and prepared foods from the Ginger Grill. They imagine a Wing’s Court that is safe, beautiful, and well taken care of: a little Boston Common in downtown New Bedford.”

On Wednesday, April 13th, the Wing’s Court project moves forward as the New Bedford Office of Planning presents Community Conversation: Redesign of Wing’s Court & Custom House Square (CHS).

Join the Office of Planning for the next step in the redesign process of Wing’s Court and Custom House Square;  an interactive and dynamic discussion on the future design and uses of these public open spaces.  Some of the topics of conversation include:
-Draft concepts presented by CDM consultants
-Feedback from the public
-Next steps

For those interested in attending, this event takes place on Wednesday, April 13th, at the New Bedford Free Public Library (Main Branch), 613 Pleasant Street, 3rd Floor Meeting Room, from 6-7:30 P.M.  For more information, please contact Jill Maclean at: jill.maclean@newbedford-ma.gov.  You can also call her at (508) 978-1488.

  1. I think it would be great but the tax payers cannot afford it at this time.
