On May 19, NEWRA sent a letter regarding the Eliot and North Bennet Street Schools, to the Mayor, Representative Michlewitz, Councilor LaMattina, the Councilors-at-Large, Peter Meade (Director, BRA), and Matthew Cahill (Executive Director, Boston Finance Commission). The letter described the strong neighborhood support for the expansion of both schools. A neighborhood meeting with City officials and representatives of the BRA and the Boston Finance Commission was requested, in order to discuss the schools’ needs and the proposed disposition of the City Printing Plant and its adjacent buildings.
