What people are talking about

What happened at last night’s NEWRA meeting? Well, the one zoning request for a new roof deck at 93 Endicott Street was not supported (18 oppose, 7 support) by the group. The other voting item was the allowance of video and audio taping at monthly meetings. This was supported 22-2 to allow taping with advance Exec Committee permission. (Ed: Yay!) MassDOT’s John Romano presented the plan to move the RMV to Parcel 7. Robyn Reed was also introduced as NEWRA’s nominee to the Greenway Conservancy Board of Directors. Those items and other meeting news will be reported further in upcoming posts.
