Another example of institutional expansion in Boston and what a neighborhood is doing about it.
Roslindale Wetlands Task Force
The Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University has proposed building a 45,000-square-foot institutional facility on land it owns near the Roslindale Wetlands.A public meeting about the proposal is scheduled for Wednesday, January 31, 6:30 p.m., at St. Nectarios Greek Orthodox Church in Roslindale Square. All concerned about this project or interested in learning more are encouraged to attend.
The most prominent concern voiced by neighbors to date was the lack of permanent preservation of green space at the site. The Boston Redevelopment Authority has already received a heavy volume of comments about the proposal—proof that comments from the public are noticed and DO make a difference.
