Last month, Cambridge City Councillor Dennis Carlone drafted a policy order calling on the city to relocate the upcoming Planning Board hearing on the Sullivan Courthouse redevelopment to a site in East Cambridge.
As a result of last month's order, the city has just announced that the meeting will be moved from the Citywide Senior Center to a location in the East Cambridge neighborhood. Right now, the Community Development Department is exploring options at the Kennedy-Longfellow School and the Multicultural Arts Center. This should make it easier for neighborhood residents to voice their concerns with the developer's application.
Earlier this year, Councillor Carlone submitted a policy order calling on calling on Legatt-McCall Properties and the state's Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance, "to work together in an expeditious and creative fashion to substantially reduce the height, traffic, and environmental impacts" of the proposal.
