This document describes how the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act office will conduct its review of the Harvard 20-year Master Plan. It includes:
Establishment of a Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC)
The existing Harvard-Allston Task Force, supplemented with a limited number of additional representatives to assist in the state's review of Master Plan impacts, serve the function of the CAC. To nominate yourself of someone else to be on the CAC, address your email to Secretary Ian Bowles and sent it to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 9. It can only help to ask your State Rep and Senator to nominate you as well.
Third-party review of Harvard plans
Harvard has made a voluntary commitment to provide the CAC with financial resources to assist the CAC in obtaining third-party peer review of technical materials developed by the proponent that pertain to the issues of transportation, energy, and air quality.
