At the January 14, 2016 board meeting for the Boston Redevelopment Authority, the BRA deferred voting on the controversial Garden Garage redevelopment project.
Director Brian Golden explained in a statement, “Our Board of Directors heard three hours of public testimony about the Garden Garage project at last night’s meeting. We appreciate that so many community members came out on a cold evening to express their opinion about this project, which clearly has passionate voices on both sides. Given the significant objections that were presented by residents of the West End, the board deferred a vote on the proposal. It is our hope that substantive communication occurs in the near term between the developer and residents to address ongoing concerns.”
