FPRA Meeting, June 4 at 7 PM

The Fresh Pond Residents Alliance will meet on Wed., June 4 at 7 pm in the Tobin auditorium. Please join us if you can. Residents of all areas of Cambridge (and Belmont) are welcome.

  • The McKinnon Co. will share plans for (another) large project on Cambridge Park Drive, the dead-end street that starts at the Alewife T and parallels the new bike trail along the Alewife Reservation wetlands. The complex would include 378 rental units and a 791-space shared use parking garage. Once all the planned construction on Cambridge Park Drive is complete, there would be about 1,550 apartments on this cul-de-sac bounded by the commuter rail tracks and the wetlands. The only egress is onto Route 2.
  • The Cambridge Redevelopment Authority will talk about its strategic plan and how it might relate to the Fresh Pond-Alewife area.
  • We will hear an update on the ongoing fight to save the Silver Maple Forest from a 298-unit development (15 acres on the Cambridge-Belmont border right off Rt. 2 and bordering the wetlands of the Reservation). Clear cutting could begin as soon as August if we don’t pull out all the stops.
