The Historic Boston-Edison Association is an association of the residents of the Boston-Edison Historic District. We all love our big old historic homes, and they are a major investment of our money, time, and energy. Through the Association, we work together as a community to safeguard the value, character, and appearance of our homes and our neighborhood.
Board of Directors. The Historic District is divided into areas, each of which is represented on the Board of Directors of the Association. The Board has standing committees that work on areas of common interest to residents. Current directors are given in the List of Board Members. Minutes of Board meetings are recorded in the residents-only section.
Public Relations Committee. We want to always be connected with each other and with the greater community. This committee works to promote the neighborhood among residents and to the world outside our district. The committee is responsible for this website, as well as our printed materials and social media accounts that keep us informed about B-E no matter where we call home.
Homes in the Boston-Edison Historic District are protected by the City's historic district zoning ordinances. The value of our homes depends partly on how well we preserve the historic architectural character of the neighborhood as a whole. Zoning restrictions are a crucial protection for the neighborhood and thereby for each of us. This committee works to promote compliance with historic and zoning ordinances through educational efforts, working with various city and county departments, and through legal action when required. Read more about the Zoning Committee initiatives in the residents-only section.
