BCYF Nazzaro Community Center to Reopen May 16
The two-month lead paint remediation project at BCYF Nazzaro Community Center in the North End is complete and the center is scheduled to reopen on Monday, May 16. The project's completion means the center is ready to reopen safely for Boston's children and families in time for summer programming.
The lead removal project was conducted in the interest of health, particularly for the center's young children who are vulnerable to toxic effects of lead. The lead removal project included scraping loose and flaking lead paint on ceilings and stabilizing areas, leaving areas ready for paint, and cleaning rooms by HEPA vacuuming and TSP wash. Lead removal work has been safely completed in the gym, second floor rooms and hallway, the staircase, and areas of the exterior.
To celebrate the reopening and share program updates, center staff are planning an event on Thursday, May 26, beginning at 4 p.m. with food and games. BCYF will have more to share as the event gets closer.
