Keep asking for a MEPA comment extension

We had a great meeting last night to learn more about the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) and their review of Harvard's Science Complex and 20 year plan. Many members of the Allston community, our neighbors from Cambridge, and representatives from organizations like the Charles River Watershed Association, Conservation Law Foundation, and MassBike stood and spoke about the importance of strong environmental review and ensuring that the quality of life in our neighborhood and our local environment is not harmed by Harvard's development.

Unfortunately, Harvard still refuses to extend the comment period deadline past the legally required September 7 deadline, so please keep asking. When you email also cc in the MEPA office to emphasize to the MEPA team how much we need more time to understand and respond to another complex Harvard filing.

  1. I noticed in the handout from last night that Harvard's request for a waiver includes the art warehouse, which as I understand it, is on hold till we get this science center mess worked-out.
