This week Boston.com continued its coverage of the development boom around the Alewife area, this time focusing on the potential risks of building in the floodplain in advance of the long-awaited findings of the city’s Climate Change Vulnerability Study (to be presented on February 12 at 6 pm at MIT Tang E51).

Read the most recent Boston.com full story.*

Also this week the Cambridge Chronicle ran a guest editorial by FPRA President Jan Devereux on the debate over hiring a city ombudsman as a resource to help level the playing field for residents to evaluate and respond to large development proposals. There is now a policy order on the City Council agenda on Monday, January 26, to reconsider this idea.

One thought on “Recent Press Coverage of FPRA Concerns

  1. Excellent comments by Jan Devereux. The situation in and around Fresh Pond is totally out of control! (recently received an email of an offering of the “Approved 254 Unit” at 88 CambridgePark Drive).

    Is there an updated calendar for FPRA and any related meetings of the many City departments?

    Best,
