United Neighbors of Lower Roxbury

Get Involved


UNLR holds monthly meetings, where its members and other interested parties discuss issues affecting the neighborhood. UNLR uses a committee structure to address issues such as parks and streets maintenance, city services, public safety, social events, and communications.

If you have any questions, comments, or recommendations, please feel free to contact us. Thank you!

Parks & Streets

The parks & streets committee is responsible for improving the physical appearance of the neighborhood and ensuring that the city provides effective services to the neighborhood. Issues addressed are parks, lights, tree-trimming, graffiti removal, parking, traffic flow, street sweeping and trash collection.


The communications committee is responsible for informing members about organizational developments and recruiting new members. The committee maintains the website, takes minutes of monthly meetings and advertises for meetings and events.

Public Safety

The public safety committee monitors area crime and works with Boston Police and other city departments to build partnerships for reducing crime.


The by-laws committee is a temporary committee charged with reviewing the organization's by-laws, and if necessary, proposing revisions.


The building committee addresses issues related to the redevelopment of 90 Windsor Street, a 4,880 sq. foot vacant building owned by UNLR.
